Waxman Makes Top 10 Best Congressmen List
Even though he is one of the big reasons there is no "subway to the sea" today, he's also one of the reasons we're finally working towards that very subway he helped stopped in the 80s. Nevertheless, Congressmen Henry Waxman (D), representing much of the Westside, earned major points with Esquire on their top 10 list:
Someone must count the costs of this presidency, and Waxman has for years been the most consistent voice in Congress not just calling for Bush-administration malfeasance and constitutional vandalism to be investigated but -- with his army of investigators -- actually doing something about it. In that, he has been virtually alone.
The magazine also hosted a list of the top 10 worst members of Congress which included two Californians: Rep. Pete Stark (D) from Northern California and Rep. Joe Baca (D) of San Bernardino, whose district also made a top ten list--districts with the highest foreclosure rates.
