Stop the Lies from Congress

pelosiWhile watching the beginning of the debate this morning in the House of Representatives for the stimulus package which was broadcast on CSPAN, I was dumbfounded by a procedural issue that passed by the House with almost unequivocal House Democrat support.  The issue that arose had to do with some amendments to the stimulus package. 

In the Energy and Commerce committee 6 amendments to the bill were passed by both the Democrats and Republicans; however, these 6 amendments did not make it into the stimulus package that the House of Representatives is voting on today.  Republicans brought up this issue before the Congress and also pointed out that Nancy Pelosi had released a statement that the stimulus had bipartisan support, yet those Republicans who were supporting the stimulus package or portions thereof were doing so with their amendments included.  When those amendments did not make it into the bill, of course, the Republican support for those portions of the bill were no longer valid.  The House then took a vote on this procedural issue and passed overwhelmingly by Congress Democrats to proceed with the discussion of the stimulus package and vote on the stimulus package without these pre-approved amendments included in it.

How can the House of Representatives in good faith vote on a stimulus package today when they can’t even get approved in committee amendments accurately included in the bill?  The more you watch our Country’s Representatives in the House in action, you ask yourself would the majority of these dolts keep their jobs if they worked in the private sector.  No, they’d be fired.  It’s time to get yourself involved in politics and fire these idiots.  Our country can’t afford their mistakes any longer.

Update 2/13/2009

Today, the House of Representatives and the Senate will be voting on the final version of the “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.”  The final version of the bill was not made final until yesterday.  Nancy Pelosi and other Democrat leadership stated that they would allow 48 hours to review the final version of the bill, yet another promise they will now not be keeping.

How long are you going to let Nancy Pelosi and her colleagues lie to you before you have had enough?
