Only 74 of the 435 members of The House of Representatives attending a reading of The Constitution should paint a very clear and vivid picture to the people of The United States that our elected officials could care less about what is the law and following it. Welcome to Great Britain at the time of The Revolution folks!
HMM....how about we give weekly random pop quiz's on the Constitution.!0 questions, multiple choice, less than 90% right leads to that weeks pay and benefits held back from them! That held back pay/benefits would help pay for this program! That's the LAW ON THE LAND and most would fail miserably IMO.
@stepped_in_it You know the mere fact that these people have "crisis" after crisis going right to the deadline and even when they're supposed to be in session they aren't there? A pox on both parties. These people think they're Dukes and Earls and it's time to throw some people out of office. We might start with ALL OF THEM.
@jessejaymes Ok.....back with the tar and feathers and now all you want me to do is throw them out <face in palms and VERY disappointed looking> And I agree 100%. Voted green and for no incumbent....and will do so until further notice!
How many Democrats got sick to their stomachs as the Constitution is read and it contradicted a large part of their ideology? I wish I could have been there to see that. Here Democrat, I got a waste basket, vomit over into this. LOL.
Neo, you are assuming that any in that room has a conscience that would allow them to believe they are wrong in their ideology and then equate that to make them sick! We are talking about congress.....remember!
Republicans like to wear flag pins, recite the pledge of allegiance, and waste valuable time reading the constitution out loud while the cameras roll and then go back to their offices to take orders from the Koch brothers on how to best circumvent the will of the people. The really incredible part of all of this is that so many GOP supporters buy into this crap.
@cwi530 Thanks for reminding about another stupid thing the righties like to do. Every couple of years they try to get an amendment to the constitution to ban flag burning. These morons care more for the symbols than the country itself.
