just another rant …
The 113th Congress went on vacation, with fewer days worked than the people they seem to keep voting against …some Republicans call lazy
Do you wonder if $175K is a lot for about 126 days of work per year? Yes, take a deep Breath as the Peoples business is up against some deadlines as Republicans choose to keep facing off with the Democratic Party while looking childish. President Barack H Obama Won Election2012, his 2nd term yet some conservatives in Congress act like Mitch McConnell’s statement to make PBO a one term President or that Waterloo comment are still valid least he makes the effort to shut down the government again. Yes, breathe in slowly then slowly release your breath … be still, then repeat the process when needed as insanity in the News, Weather, Sports and Politics begins
I have to ask, since when did Ted Cruz, Lindsey Graham or their small group of teabag members have control over the governing party. They certainly act like it every time they get a chance to be on cable TV. These men, who say one thing while planning takedowns in secret rooms have tossed their title of Public Servant down the nearest sewer. Now, I wonder how we will ever pass VRA, immigration reform and other bills For Americans kept off the floor of Congress because of those poison pill amendments. Again, how childish and how tough is it to understand the Republican Party needs to be more inclusive, though trust, respect and future votes are not seasonal or easily earned nor should they be. It makes a voter wonder, can Republicans stop flip-flopping for just a minute so Congress can get the People’s business done. Yet, the tantrums continue. Okay, stop and take a deep breath as the talking points meme disguised as debates, votes and amendments begin on the floor of Congress.
If you listen to Republicans, they act; remember (act) like they plan to be in bipartisan mode but they have shown themselves to be less than trustworthy less than bipartisan and their votes … proof of how they actually feel cannot be denied or overlooked.
Yes, Congress has taken the time to bring issues such as Student Loan Rates Gun Safety Immigration to the floor of Congress and all connected to jobs. It is important to call your member of Congress because the Republican tactic to stall or quietly throw poison pills in amendments is happening right this very moment. I ask you to please call your member of Congress and tell them to pass a Climate Change bill, respect reproductive rights, VRA, immigration reform and pass #theAmericansJOBsACT, as all Americans need a path toward Stability not Austerity, which is what Republicans seem to keep pushing.
I want America to wake up, push back, and demand all members of Congress do the People’s business before #Midterm2014
Republicans see themselves as stewards of the purse strings in the House of Representatives and they are, but it does not give them the right to act or do what they want as if their party is governing.
#Midterm2014 will decide what kind of life we all want our next generation to navigate through
