So when DO you take action that means something?

OD: Hanna Bucks Republican majority in shutdown battle
Hanna was one of two Republicans who voted against delaying Obamacare . . . "I would take a clean (continuing resolution),” he said. “I have voted dozens of times to repeal, reform and defund Obamacare. There are glaring problems with the law and we see more daily.”
Problem is, the Democrats and the Administration are not negotiating to change Obamacare.  Instead, they simply exempt their friends and politically connected cronies (including THEMSELVES) from Obamacare's onerous requirements.

Mr. Hanna's voting "dozens of times" to repeal Obamacare at times when the votes had no impact are meaningless.

This time, the Republicans are finally using what little leverage they have to bring the Democrats to the negotiating table. . . . but Mr. Hanna sides with the Democrats.  One can only conclude that Mr. Hanna tacitly supports this law.

The American public should have the same exemption from Obamacare that Congress has.

Delay Obamacare for a year.

Meaningless that is the exact word that sums up Hanna's representation in Congress. Nothing accomplished, no record except playing it safe.

The Congressman has recently mailed out a newsletter where he distanced himself from the Republicans in Congress. It seems that it does not matter who we elect in this district, in spite of their political party affiliation, we always seem to elect a Liberal. Unfortunately, we don’t have a dog in this fight. Perhaps this Congressman has overstayed his welcome as our representative.
