Lies Lies Lies
Note this is History it happened week before last
On the House floor
By all appearances, the House is about to vote on a very long bill of which it has no completed official copy.
Texas Republican Reps. Joe Barton and Louie Gohmert have just asked the chair whether there exists a complete, updated copy of the Waxman-Markey carbon-cap bill.
"If a bill for which there is no copy were to actually pass this body," Barton asked, "could the bill without a copy be sent to the Senate for its consideration?"
Through a series of parliamentary inquiries, the Republicans learned that the 300-plus page managers’ amendment, added to the bill last night in the House Rules Committee, has not even been been integrated with the official copy of the 1,090-page bill at the House Clerk’s desk, let alone in any other location. The two documents are side-by-side at the desk as the clerk reads through the instructions in the 300 page document for altering the 1,090 page document.
But they cannot be simply combined, because the amendment contains 300 pages of items like this: "Page 15, beginning line 8, strike paragraph (11)…" How many members of Congress do you suppose have gone through it all to see how it changes the bill?
Global Warming is apparently so urgent that we can’t even wait until members of Congress know what they’re voting on.
No wonder we were unable to find a copy of this bill online. Apparently, there is no complete copy anywhere.
Yet it passed anyway.
Which means that Congress is not just passing bills that have not been read by anyone.
They are now passing bills that haven’t even been written.
Now that the Senate has 60 seats thanks to the folks of Minnesota.
I guess a guy like Franken fits right in with those folks.
That means they can cram that bill right down our throats.
All in the name of Global Warming.
Well it is 4th of July weekend, never mind have a great weekend!!!
We will start to whine when gas gets to $7.00 or $8.00 and you can't afford electricity because America will not be able to make electricity with coal.
Then on top of that we got a bunch of Gangster Government
