If these 21 lawmakers were taking Rep. Mark Takano's class, he'd likely give them all failing grades.
Having taught British literature in public schools for more than 20 years, Takano is used to editing papers. So, when a few Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Speaker John Boehner on immigration reform, the California Democrat took out his red marker.
Here is what he came up with:
He posted it along with this caption: "A draft letter by Republican members to Speaker Boehner is circulating Congress looking for cosigners. I thought I'd offer my edits to the author before they submitted their final version."¦ Still not signing it."
This post ended up on the freshman representative's Tumblr account, "There Will Be Charts," which has gained some traction in recent months. He pulled the editing stunt in April when House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., released his budget, posting his version of the bill.
When Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., joined the social-media site in June to tout her bill to repeal Obamacare, Takano posted his own response, which gained a lot of attention.
