Rep. Clyburn? Are You Freakin’ Kidding Me? If there was ever a time for the House and Senate to TAKE A BREAK, STOP SPENDING MONEY, AND STOP TRANSFORMING AMERICA into something we don’t even recognize – NOW WOULD BE THAT TIME. Are ya hearing us yet?
House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) told colleagues during a “contentious” closed-door session Thursday that they should postpone the August break until they pass a sweeping health care reform bill.
The Democratic whip says he told his colleagues they will be criticized in the press for leaving town without passing a bill.
You will be criticized by the ObamaMedia? Give us a freakin’ break! What a whiner! You and your buddies on the hill better start worrying about us voters and the march on Capitol Hill on 9.12.09.
“I think it will effect our standing with the American people if we don’t do this as a party,” Clyburn said afterward.
Your standing with American people has already been affected or hadn’t you noticed all the Tea Parties, letters, emails, and the capitol hill switchboard melting?
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) were both in attendance during the 90-minute session, but Clyburn would not say what their reactions were.
I am sure Nancy is just dying to stay in hot/muggy Washington DC all summer when she could be jetting all over in her private plane to get more beauty treatments.
