Durbin's path to re-election

October 25, 2013 

I agree with Sen. Durbin's front page op-ed that concussions in student athletes are a serious problem. I don't agree with him proposing to take his and the Senate's time on such a small element of concern affecting a few, when considering the problems facing the entire nation such as the debt, jobs, the health debacle, and the other problems affecting us all. Sen Durbin, spend your time in D.C. leading the way in solving the problems you were elected to take care of. Do that for your constituents and you won't have to spend half of your time on the campaign trail. I might even vote for you.
