henry-waxmanThe last of the Democrats elected in 1974 and known as the “Watergate babies” is retiring. California Democrat Henry Waxman will retire from Congress at the end of 2014 after forty years in the House.

Waxman, who is seen as one of the most effective legislators in Congress, champions infant formula safety, clean air regulations, and low-priced generic drugs. He was also one of the lawmakers that was instrumental in the passage of the Affordable Care Act.

Fellow California congressman and “Watergate baby” George Miller also announced his plans to retire at the end of the year. Read more at the Washington Post.

  1. Boruch Hashem!!!

    It’s about time we got rid of 2 of the most liberal left-wing looney DemoRats in the U.S. House of Representatives, Waxman & Miller.

    Henry Waxman who was involved in many scandals during his 40 years in Congress (that many many have forgotten today) such as his involvement in the Congressional Post Office Scandal, his involvement with toeva interns and others which can be found on the web. He was one of the biggest Chillul Hashem as a champion of same gender marriage and the first to offer LGBT legislation on a national level. He was the champion of to toeva rights in the House of Reps.
    He used to tell people that the only reason he is a DemoRat is because there is no organized Socialist Party.
    Good Riddance!!!

  2. #1 – Frum Jews are generally taught not to be coarse or insulting in their language. Your choice of words makes me wonder. Some of the other posters on political articles also seem to share your lack of eidelkeit. Could you possibly be a non-frum political troll? Even a non-Jewish troll? My frum friends don’t use the rough language you do, and would blush to be heard saying such things.

  3. ‘The last of the Democrats elected in 1974 and known as the “Watergate babies” is retiring.’

    Not true. Patrick Leahy is still very much in the US Senate and isn’t retiring.

    “It’s about time we got rid of 2 of the most liberal left-wing looney DemoRats”

    This liberal left-wing loon as for almost 40 years been one of the strongest supporters of Israel. In fact, in his statement announcing his retirement, he listed that as one of the small number of things for which he is most proud.

    I hope you aren’t one of the conservative right-wing loons who hates Israel.
