Soroptimists praised by McNerney before Congress

Original post made on Apr 4, 2011

A women's service group from the San Ramon Valley has been recognized by the House of Representatives, with the help of Congressman Jerry McNerney (D-Pleasanton). McNerney lauded members of the Soroptimist International of San Ramon Valley while in Washington, D.C., as part of Women's History Month.

How "nice" Mcnerny is praising a women's group! Considering he supported obamacare---how many of these young girls and women will be refused health treatments in the future due directly to mcnerny's blind support? Oh remember--he made sure he and his family would be exempt from what has been foisted on his constituents. Wonder why there have been over 1,000 WAIVERS granted to union cronies if it's so good?

A vote is a vote and recognizing a group, cause or whatever is a small price to pay for those votes! It is ever thus.

More nice "fluff" from (and about) McNerney! More taking of time away from the big issues to recognize good work from local organizations. You're looking pretty, McNerney!
Too bad you've got no correct substance or effective results to offer on the real Federal issues to which you should be addressing yourself.
Will we ever get out of our mess, with political clowns like McNerney in the mix!?!

Hey Danville Express... you can quit campaigning now. Your constant, daily fluff about Mcnerney is nauseating.

A big "Thank You!" to Jerry McNerney, for recognizing this fine group in the House of Representatives! And also for representing all of US in the matters of Health Care Reform (YEA!), Transportation, and for standing up for our fine men and women in uniform. He's doing an outstanding job!

Jerry gets more free meaningless press than the Naked Guy from Cal!

I'm a sore optimist, too -- but I didn't know we had a club.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
