A lot of Republicans were outraged at the NRA for refusing to help defeat Harry Reid since he was A-rated, and that election was so close, that just a little effort from the NRA may have scared enough people to elect Angle. That policy is going to pay off now, because Reid and several other A-rated Dems in the senate who have seen their non-partisan loyalty rewarded, are going to put a stop to this nonsense.
Tell that to Debra Maggart. And others . . .

For decades, Republican politicians have gone along with this racket, some willingly and others because they know that resisting would be pointless. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, the N.R.A. spent almost $19 million in the last federal election cycle. This money is not just spent to beat Democrats but also to beat Republicans who donít toe the line.
