    This is from last years vote on Hinchey MMJ bill.

    Analysis: Who Voted For Medical Marijuana This Time?
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Hinchey results are in, losing by a vote of 165-262. This is only a very slight improvement over last year, when we lost 163-259. Here's a summary of the key stats:

    165 members of Congress voted for the Hinchey medical marijuana amendment this year (150 of them Democrats), but 262 members of Congress voted against it. Ten members did not have votes recorded (plus Pelosi, for some technical reason as Speaker).

    78 Democrats voted against the amendment, while 15 Republicans voted for it.
    Nine members who voted Yes on the amendment last year switched their votes to No this time (hiss), and three who voted No last year switched to Yes.
    27 members of Congress who are either newly-elected or did not have a vote recorded on the Hinchey amendment last year, voted Yes, only one of them Republican.
    45 members of Congress who are either newly-elected, or did not vote on the amendment last year, voted No, including 24 Democrats and 21 Republicans.
    Two members of Congress who voted Yes last year did not vote on the amendment this year, and seven members who voted No last year also didn't vote this year.

    This is excellent info :-)

    Everyone needs to track thier state reps and vote them out in the next election. Check your state and write down those names. Send them a nice email telling them goodbye, and tell them why they are going away.

    I may be a little off the time scale here, but I dont see Obama anywhere in there. Was this one of his "present" votes? Or was he not serving in his senatorial capacity at this time?
