Is the Congress Symbolic or Planning to do anything
Meets at 10 a.m. to consider H.Res.861, Declaring that the U.S. will prevail in the Global War on Terror, the struggle to protect freedom from the terrorist adversary."
Thanks Washington Post
The House of Representatives voted on a resolution saying that the U.S. will win vs. the terrorists. H.R. 861. The Republican leadership in the House intends to spend two days on this. CNN is painting this as a great political maneuver.... Who the hell wouldn't vote in support of this measure? Pelosi should stand up and call for an acclimation vote... Then let them move on to issues that are a little less symbolic... How about cleaning up FEMA. I'm certain the people in Fla., Ga., N.C., and Va., and La. would appreciate that. Could someone please put a bill together to shore up port security, or maybe they can spend the day working on a resolution stating that the US will not torture individuals it has in custody.....Maybe they can take the day to devise a strategy helping farmers that are being destroyed by gas prices that are improperly inflated... Or these same very wise men will spend the day on reaffirming the 1st amendment...
This idiotic bill does nothing. People in 4 states still have blue roofs. Immigration reform is still becoming an excuse for an even larger government. Gas prices are still at 3 dollars a gallon. There are so many things to focus on... (not to mention the VA health care system, good jobs being replaced by service/retail jobs, failing schools, the trade deficit and many more), but "Big Denny" wants to spend 2 days on a bill saying we want to win in Iraq.... I wouldn't have known...
By the Way, if they stay on this path expect the Congress to focus on a Constitutional Amendment concerning flag desecration in the near future.... Now these are the topics that convince people that government is efficient and focused on today's most pressing issues.
