The last few years have seen the mockery made of the Congressional hearing system by lunatic tea party whack jobs in general and Darrell Issa in particular, with costly, time consuming hearing after hearing, fueled by promises of findings of wrongdoing that only exists in their own minds and in the lies they spew forth to their fox fixed news noise overlords, and to the public. When they bother to show up for work, which thankfully is not often. The least productive Congress in history is about to end with a disgusting record of failure and gridlock and obstinance and partisanship never, ever before seen in our history. With significant problems facing the citizenry in economic matters, in health care needs, in firearm safety, in environmental matters, in foreign affairs, and in having a government that can run itself on a daily basis to the country’s betterment, what has this Congress concerned itself with? Why bill after bill to roll back health care reform and to limit the Constitutional right to choose.
We’ve seen the “Red State Experiment” of Kansas, the similar transformations in states like Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Virginia, and the long list of the rest of them, and it has been a disaster, and the voters of those states, beginning last November in Virginia and continuing tomorrow, are poised to throw out the perpetrators as the y seek a return
Do we want a Senate controlled by a Joni Ernst who will use her little Smith & Wesson to take out government agents who are enforcing policies and laws contrary to her own? Do we want a Senate controlled by a Thom Tillis who will deny health care and an education to those who cannot afford it? Do we want a Senate controlled by a Scott Brown who says that ebola is an airborne disease and direct contact with a victim is not needed to contract the disease and who would enforce draconian laws to avoid a non-existent epidemic?
Do we want a reactionary amendment repealing health care reform, limiting unemployment benefits, restricting abortion rights, or rolling back environmental regulations attached to every single bill passed in the Senate?
People, use your brains! Look at these candidates and see what and who they are, and vote for YOUR interests, not for what and who benefits the Koch Bros., Sheldon Adelson, and the ghost of Harold Simmons.
