This is what real leadership looks like

A man with a good conscious went to Albany to save lives. Listen to him speak from the heart.

"Sen. Tom Duane gave an eyebrow-raising performance on the Senate floor early this morning in hopes of moving his colleagues to support a bill that prevents people living with HIV or AIDS and receiving public assistance from having to pay more than 30 percent of their monthly income on rent," wrote Elizabeth Benjamin on The New York Daily News.

The video is going viral, and is being spread by folks on Facebook.

"The vote on the bill, which was not passed by the Assembly, was 52-1. The lone "no" vote was cast by Sen. Kemp Hannon, a Long Island Republican and former chairman of the Senate Health Committee (now the ranking minority member)," Ms. Benjamin added.

No Third Term for Republicans !!!
