Malevolence In Action   1 comment

You know, as I was watching snippets of Ted Cruz’s fauxlibuster on the Senate floor earlier this week, there was a bit which really made me wonder why the U.S. just doesn’t up and move the U.S.-Mexico border up to the Red River…quoting WaPo’s transcript:

Yet I will tell you, Madam President–you and I have both served in this institution some 9 months, not very long, but in the time we have been here we have spent virtually zero time even talking about jobs and the economy. It doesn’t make the agenda. It apparently is not important enough for this body’s time. We spent 6 weeks talking about guns, talking about taking away law-abiding citizens’ Second Amendment rights, and we spend virtually no time talking about fundamental tax reform, about regulatory reform, about getting the economy going. And politicians wonder why it is that Congress is held in such low esteem. This is unfortunately a bipartisan issue, on both sides.(Washington Post)

What kind of world does that sonuvabitch live on? Seriously, what world is it? In between voting on meaningless repeals of Obamacare (what are they up to, 41, 42 votes now?) they seem to could give two —– about helping the American people and instead cook up —- like this:

The debt-limit measure, which was still being loaded with new provisions late Wednesday, amounts to a grand conservative wish list. In addition to delaying implementation of the health-care law for one year, the bill would establish a timetable for tax reform, squeeze $120 billion from federal health programs over the next decade — in part by tightening medical malpractice laws — and cut federal civil service pensions.

The measure also would approve construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline and advance other GOP economic goals, including increasing offshore oil drilling, blocking federal regulation of greenhouse gas emissions and restricting most forms of federal industry regulation.

About the only major piece of the Republican agenda missing from the bill is a ban on late-term abortions — and some lawmakers who oppose abortion were arguing to add that, GOP aides said.(Washington Post)

Boy, that’s some jobs agenda there, GOP….slashing hard-earned pensions and benefits, blocking health care reform, giving bad doctors a pass, allowing people & companies to pollute w/out consequences…what, do they really think Democrats are supposed to go along with this or else default on our debts?

I never thought I’d ever say this, given the nearly 2 decades that I was a conservative but I really hope and pray that the Republican Party falls apart at the seams…I just hope in the same breath that they don’t take America with them.
