"Nothing is politically right which is morally wrong." ~ Daniel O'Connell

Yesterday, U.S. Senator Barbara Mikulski was joined by Senators

Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.),
Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.),
Patty Murray (D-Wash.),
Mary Landrieu (D-La.),
Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.),
Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.),
Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.),
Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) and
Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.)

to "announce THEIR Checklist for Change, a list of ten issues Congress can immediately address to improve the lives of the American people."

This list includes:

Providing equal pay for equal work
Keeping jobs in America
Making health care affordable
Taking care of our military families and veterans
Restoring America’s credibility in the world
Protecting our environment
Making America energy independent
Preparing for future disasters
Enforcing fiscal accountability
Protecting the family checkbook

Whoa, whoa, whoa ladies....

This sounds very much like Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton's platform as a presidential candidate.

It also looks like this identical checklist was promoted as a"Checklist for Change" over two years ago by Senator Clinton, who was a participant in your group at the time....

I only have one question Senators. How did you muster the audacity to propose this as your agenda and fail to endorse the woman who ran on it?
