Send The House Home

This is a piece of art by Georgia Rep. Tom Price (R).

Republican Study Committee Chairman Tom Price (R-GA) issued the following statement after offering a resolution on the floor of the House of Representatives calling on Congress not to hold a lame duck session after Election Day for the purpose of passing hugely unpopular legislation like a national energy tax, enormous deficit spending bills, and the kickback to Big Labor known as “Card Check.”

“Americans are sick and tired of their elected leaders making backroom deals to ram through unpopular, 2000-page bills that no one has read,” said Chairman Price.  “They are sick of out-of-touch politicians, and they are tired of being ignored.  A number of Democrats, including members of their leadership, have recently expressed a desire to ignore the public will and use a lame duck session to pass liberal legislation Americans do not want.  Today I gave my Democrat colleagues an opportunity to show they are finally ready to listen to the American people.

“Our system of government rests upon the consent of the governed, but it is quite clear that Democrats no longer have Americans’ consent.  The public’s trust in this Congress has been repeatedly broken.  Voting for a national energy tax and other items on the liberal wish list in a lame duck session would shatter it beyond repair.  Republicans are fully prepared to do what is necessary to restore Americans’ trust in their elected representatives.  We know it will be a long road, but it is one well worth traveling.”

Not going to happen, but it’s sweet to listen to all of his “whereases.”  This guy has it all right.  Congress is about to go into their August recess.  Might not be a bad idea if they extended their recess for a lot longer.  The Texas legislature meets once every two years.  Sounds like a good idea for the federal level.

  1. Sad, but true, that our country would be much better off if the Congress and Pres would just go on an extended vacation.

    We don’t need any more bills designed to strip more money from tax payers. Until we can get the troops in the Congress…I’m happy with the door being shut.

  2. Who are we kidding? When Obama isn’t stumping for Democrat candidates in individual states or trying to ram through one of his monster pieces of legislation, he IS on vacation. Or playing golf.

    Sometimes I’d swear he plays golf so much he must be running the Oval Office from the 9th hole.

  3. I actually like Obama endorsing other Democratic candidates. All of the people he endorsed lost their elections and made quick, easy victories for their rivals. There are alot of Democrats I want to see kicked out, and this is a sign he might be kicked out next election as well.
