What’s So Special About Some In Congress?
Posted by nytexan on May 25, 2007
We all know that Congress fell far short of what we wanted yesterday. And for that we are all mighty pissed, and justifiable so. For whatever spin the “yes” voters will put out for their lack of logic, personally I don’t give a crap.
For Obama and Hillary who voted “no” after the bill was safe for passing, you both lost my interest. And, I don’t give a crap about your spin.
Below are two lists that I am far more curious about and just a wee bit more ticked about. I want to know what the hell was so important that these special politicians couldn’t bother to cast a vote. Are the Representatives and Senators so busy that they can’t be bothered with a truly important vote?
I really don’t give a crap if they voted “yea” or “nay”. I really don’t care if they are a democrat or a republican. What I care about is that their sorry behinds are on that floor voting. After all it is our tax dollars that are paying their over priced salaries, so the least they could do is pretend that they give a crap and do something.
