Welcome to this posting of Liberty Blessed America. I am Larsen Rogers your Liberal Political Commentator who likes to say, “If you ain’t Liberal, you ain’t American.” This post discusses learning about our Congress. The topic is U.S. Representative David Ross Obey from the state of Wisconsin.
Dave Obey was born on October 3, 1938 in Okmulgee, Oklahoma. He currently resides in Wausau, Wisconsin. He is a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from the seventh district of Wisconsin. He is currently the Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriations.
His voting record and interest group ratings listed on Project Vote Smart indicates that he supports:
- Responsible family planning and sex education.
- A healthy balance between business and consumers.
- Civil liberties and human rights.
- The working people.
- The health and quality of life for all citizens.
- Protecting our natural resources.
- Decreasing our dependence on oil.
- Policies that support and protect our troops and veterans and keeps our military strong.
- The interests of Arts and Humanities.
- Responsible budget and spending by the U.S. Government.
Dave Obey appears to be concerned about the falling wages of the working people and about restoring and improving our American economy. He has been a strong voice for middle and low income families on economic, health care and consumer issues. He supports our constitutional right to bear arms while also supporting measures to prevent gun violence. He shows moderate support for the protection of the secular character of our government as the best guarantee of freedom for all.
The voting record and interest group ratings of Dave Obey indicates that he is against big business, corporate greed, the destruction of our economy by the irresponsible over spending of the conservative faction, the weakening our military by the conservative faction, and the loss of our middle class by the conservative faction.
Dave Obey sponsored and voted for The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
I rate Dave Obey as being a great American hero, a proud Liberal who stands against the anti-American propaganda of the conservative reich. He gets a grade of an A+ for being a Patriotic American.
