Congressman Steve Cohen; Genus or Buffoon?

Posted on January 21, 2011 by


Congressman Steve Cohen’s rather zealous support of America’s health legislation signed into law months ago might speak volume about the needs of health in his 9th Congressional District of Tennessee.  His district might be the sickest district in Tennessee and in great need of insurance as proposed and writing into law by President Obama.

President Obama supported him in a heated contest against Democratic challenger Willie Herenton.  The 9th must give credit when it’s due.  Congressman Cohen knows that next year the fight starts again.  His national exposure on such a divisive issue might speak volumes in next year’s campaign.  Plus, he knows that Republicans chances of overturning the bill is near zero.  Taking this hard-line position might work well for him; genus or buffoon nothing in between, you decide.
