On his show, Real Time, Maher is calling on viewers to take to social media to nominate and vote for the worst members of Congress. According to the Real Time blog (http://www.real-time-with-bill-maher-, once the "worst" member of Congress has been decided, "we will spend the year periodically looking at the district, meeting the entrenched incumbent, introducing his fresh-faced challenger, getting to know the people they want to serve, and generally doing our level best to flip that district." This past Friday, Maher announced that due to our Twitter campaign, Representative John Kline shot from number 75 on the list of worst members of Congress, to the number one spot! And why are people voting him as the worst? As Maher ( so succinctly puts it, "Kline didn't just oppose the Student Loan Forgiveness Act, he actually wrote a bill to reduce the budget deficit by raising rates on student loans." 259 Share 89 ( lang=en& Tweet 9 Share 5 Email 2 Comment ( cyrus-blowup-doll_n_5301925.html? utm_hp_ref=mostpopular) ( weight-jessica-johnson_n_5002531.html? utm_hp_ref=mostpopular) ( lawrence-jason-wu-dress-x-men-world- premiere_n_5304939.html? utm_hp_ref=mostpopular) ( castle-for-sale_n_5308000.html? utm_hp_ref=mostpopular) ( romney-tax/2014/05/11/id/570713/? utm_hp_ref=mostpopular) 2.1k LikeLike

(cuddlebaer) (/social/cuddlebaer?action=comments) 2 SUPER USER · 246 Fans · I am retired military and a political activist! This Congressman has to be one of the worst if not the worst in US History to attempt to pay the deficits by the student loans. This will do nothing more than do permanent harm to those people that need assistance for college. I believe that the profits being earned by the Department of Education on student loans should be required to give out more "Pell Grants". This will make more students able to afford to live better after they get their college degrees. 1 MAY 1:01 PM (HTTP://WWW.HUFFINGTONPOST.COM/SOCIAL/CUDDLEBAER/TWITTER-CAMPAIGN- SENDS-KL_B_5236067_311626709.HTML) REPLY FAVE SHARE MORE (/social/Huff25? action=comments) Coleen . (Huff25) (/social/Huff25?action=comments) 1 0 Fans Kline is everything you don't want in a Congressman.We as a nation have to decide what we want for the future.. Today it is nothing to graduate a 4 year college and owe $200,000 in student loans.As a country who is trailing in all the STEM sciences why are we discouraging our best minds? Who will tackle the problems that lie ahead of us? Then you have nations like Denmark that actually pay their students to go to college simply because they want a well educated population.. Our values are totally screwed up.. 1 MAY 4:53 PM (HTTP://WWW.HUFFINGTONPOST.COM/SOCIAL/HUFF25/TWITTER-CAMPAIGN- SENDS-KL_B_5236067_311642555.HTML) REPLY FAVE SHARE MORE ( twins-born-holding-hands_n_5307308.html? utm_hp_ref=mostpopular) ( transgender-daughter_n_5282866.html? utm_hp_ref=mostpopular) ( female-band-orgasm-_n_5298116.html? utm_hp_ref=mostpopular) ( crisco-dead_n_5311825.html? utm_hp_ref=mostpopular) ( confused-about-evolution-heres-an-answer-to- your-every-question?utm_hp_ref=mostpopular)
