A Progressive Challenge for Craig Moore and Conservative Montanans Re: Dennis Rehberg

Craig Moore has recently decided that progressives aren’t allowed to criticize4081722962_ddd24e4169_o their opponents, suggesting that movement is some sort of hippy communal love fest to inspire radical change in American society. Or some nonsense like that; I don’t know what Glenn Beck told him progressivism meant last week.

In the spirit of this inane philosophy, I present a challenge to more conservative Montanans: identify a single, substantive piece of legislation that Dennis Rehberg has written and passed as a member of Congress for the past decade. No rhetorical stands, no YouTube stunts, no interviews with Fox News,no drunken escapes foreign or domestic—simply a substantive piece of work for the millions of dollars his office has cost the nation since 2001.

Clarification: resolutions honoring the Carroll College football team or the City of Billings do not count.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
