Representative Eric Massa (D- NY) addressed an intimate group of Netroots activists during their annual Netroots Nation gathering in Pittsburgh this weekend. Mr. Massa reiterated his support for a single payer health care bill. He discussed the risks he takes for wanting to support such a measure in his "right wing Republican district."
According to Swing State Project, Mr. Massa won his 2008 race by two percentage points. The district's voting pattern index (PVI) is a Republican +5 seat. The National Republican Congressional Committee has the upstate New York congressman in their sights for 2010 along with 69 other House Democrats as reported by Politico. The transcript is below, and check out the corresponding video above.

Exactly, these people are supposed to represent their districts, not their party. And THAT's what the libs don't get.
The libs don't get it? Try NO POLITICIAN gets it! They are not representing US they are representing their own careers and will do and say anything to KEEP their jobs for as long as possible and a possible career in television afterwards....You think that is specific to Democrats? Thats laughable
