Congressmen Cao and Bishop spin a new “Tale of Two Cities” or at least two states

It is the best of times, and the worst of times in America, and Congressmen Joseph Cao and Sanford Bishop are in the eye of the storm…

Dickens’ fictious characters lived in Paris and London before and during the French Revolution.

Our real life members of Congress, Cao (R) and Bishop (D) live in Lousiana and Georgia respectively. While Dickens wrote of the French Revolution, America is at the peak of a defining moment. One might say that the health care bill is revolutionary and we are living in times that could determine whether millions of unborn babies live or die, times that will alter the course of countless other lives.

Cao and Bishop are two men from disparate (different) backgrounds, cities, and parties, yet both are dealing with the same life or death question. If they vote against the current Health Care (or Death Care depending on your perspective) Bill, it could effect their upcoming bids for re-election.

They are in the forefront of the battle, yet there are many other elected officials at the federal and state levels who are faced with the same question: what is right? Do I vote for what is right even though it can loose me my seat? Well gentlemen, there is much more at stake than political power. What about our souls. These are truly the times that try men’s (and women’s) souls. It is the best of times, and the worst of times…
