All about Dave "Rubber Stamp" Camp

Hey, don't take our word for it, that "Rubber Stamp" bit; GovTrack.us classifies Dave Camp as a "rank-and-file Republican".

As in, stinks of corporatism and is unable to think for himself without regular prodding from party officials or lobbyists (same diff, especially if you're a politician of the same mold as John "59 lobbyists as campaign advisers" McCain).

Do take a look at the content at the GovTrack.us link above. Did you know that Camp ranks as "poor" relative to peers when it comes to bill sponsorship? Apparently Camp's rubber stamp on any bill he sponsors or co-sponsors ensures its death, even under the Republican majority in Congress from 1994 through 2006. Wonder what it feels like to be dissed 133 times in more than ten years by ones peers -- yeah, that's the number of Camp's bills that died in committee out of 143 total.
