Georgia: Rep. Deal resigns his congressional seat

Officials in U.S. Rep. Nathan Deal’s Washington office confirmed Monday that the longtime Georgia Republican resigned his post following the Health Care Reform bill vote Sunday night.

Rep. Deal announced March 1 that he would resign from his seat on March 5 to seek the Georgia Governor’s post. He then postponed his resignation in order to cast his vote on the reform bill.

The problem with the tea partying crowd is that their leaders have somehow managed to convince them that they represent ABSOLUTELY EVERYBODY in their entire constituency. They REALLY believe this.

It is not, of course, the case, and Mr. Deal will be sadly disillusioned by the reception his candidacy gains from the electorate. I'd hazard a guess that most of us are skeptical of his candidacy and a surprising number of us are flat-out opposed.

Mr. Nathan Deal is a good man. Two years ago I lost my job due to Parkinson disease. I didn't no how I was going to live with no money coming in. So I set down and started writting letters to congressmen, senators and the President. Mr. Nathan Deal was the only one that replied back. And I didn't just only apply to republicans. I wrote democrats also because I was desperate. Mr Deal sent me a letter every month telling me he was working on getting me disability. I was awarded disability six months after I applied for it. Some people have to wait for years. Mr. Nathan Deal is for the people.
