It's when times are tough, that you learn who your friends are.
Today the U.S. House of Representatives voted on a resolution to honor the Yankees for their victory in the World Series. But one member of the Philadelphia delegation refused to support the measure.

It was U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz, whose district includes parts of Philadelphia and Montgomery counties. Both U.S. Rep. Bob Brady and U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah supported the resolution. Here’s a link to the vote results.
