I hate to admit it, but I think you are correct. After they are in office, they throw us to the wolves. And the next time they come up for election they figure we forgot about how they voted or we lost interest. And it's sad but probably true. When the IBT can't get more than 26% of 1.3 million to send in the their vote in the last general IBT rlection, why would a politician think different. Union truck drivers are a very small minority on a politicians radar scope. Just a little blip that has little or no bearing in their ability to stay in office. von.
