Congressman Jerry Weller made a decision last week and bailed on the most critical economic crisis the United States has faces since, perhaps, the Great Depression.

The Illinois Republican Congressman was the only member of the House of Representatives to cast no vote on the $700 billion bailout, according to the Sun-Times.

That’s right, Weller was the only one of 435 members of the U.S. House of Representatives to miss the vote.

A spokesman cited “a commitment to his family” as the reason for missing the vote.

Come on.

Republicans don’t deserve this seat.

In fact, State Senate Majority Leader Debbie Halvorson might have to warm this seat up herself come November.  It’s gone cold.
