    Dennis: Too bad!! She needs an earful. I can't believe SHE would come out with this amendment. That alone would be more than enough for me to be on the vote her out of office bandwagon. And I would have been on the vote her into office bandwagon BEFORE THIS just based on her ground-breaking U.S. Air Force service alone. And I am a retired Army officer. There are so many other places to cut, and in the case of the defense department (INCLUDING military music), it should be fully funded always and forever.

    I suppose the only recourse for those not living in her district, and who think she should leave, is to find out who is running against her and send donations their way.

    I would love to have a video recording of this performance.
    I would love to be able to send that picture to her with a few choice remarks!! Thanks for posting.
