We were promised 5 days to review any new bill before the President signed it; we were promised bipartisanship in the House and Senate … we have yet to see if the public will get their 5-days on “Cap & Tax” (the Senate must pass the bill first) but we know for certain bipartisanship passed through the outhouse porthole recently! What we have is sneaky, in the middle of the night politics instead.
If there are any Americans who still believe in this administration’s genuineness and sincerety, let them step up and explain the House’s passing of the worst piece of legislation in this country’s history in the middle of the night under bizarre circumstances; let them explain the 300 page admendment no one outside committee had read.
To their credit Republicans stood shoulder to shoulder until eight traitors of the people were found in their midst. Kudos to the sometimes liberal House Leader, John Boehner, for his forceful last minute effort (video) to use the house rules to squash this “pile of $&%(&*.”
Once more you and I have been taxed without much to say about it! Time for a new Declaration of Independence!
