We thought that by getting rid of Charles Taylor we were doing better. Heath Shuler has proved he is a DINO, Democrat In Name Only, as our un-representative. The health care and insurance industries gave the second largest amount of money to Heath Shuler out of all North Carolina's representatives, and this is what they bought: his "no" vote on healthcare reform.
Why did he refuse to hold real town hall meetings last summer? It wasn't the tea-party folks. He knew the majority who voted for him would be holding him to task.
Heath Shuler has enough money to buy his family any insurance they need, but he won't support your or my family getting what we need. It's time to make this DINO extinct. WNC deserves someone who will represent real people who live real lives — not a former football player who has not merely fumbled but handed the ball to the special interests.
