just another rant …
Today, is a day to take a deep Breath as the Peoples business is up against some deadlines as Republicans choose to keep facing off with the Democratic Party and looks childish to me … 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. … Yes, breathe in slowly then slowly release your breath …be still then repeat the process when needed as insanity in the News, Fall Winter 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 ,because they certainly act like it every time they get a chance to be on cable TV; these men, who say one thing while planning take downs leading up to 2010. Now, they want control of how our debt is paid, if Congress strips or delays the individual mandate to ACA while attaching poison pills like restrictions to contraceptives and the medical device tax. I wonder how we can even pass VRA, immigration reform and other bills kept off the floor of Congress. 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’t 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.
Fortunately, Congress has at least taken the time to bring issues like Student Loan Rates Gun Safety and Immigration to the floor of Congress … all are connected to jobs, though, 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, get VRA , immigration #theAmericansJOBsACT passed, as all Americans need a path toward Stability not Austerity, which is what Republicans seem to keep pushing. They need to respect women’s reproductive rights. I want America to wake up, push back, and demand all members of Congress do the People’s business.
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.
Election2013-2014 will decide what kind of life we all want our next generation to navigate through
