House Dems in Action Against the Rubber Stamp Republicans


Thought everyone would get a kick out of these clips.  My personal favorite is the one of Rep. Meek with his Accountability stamp (video) talking about the Republicans "rubber stamping" their way to a higher debt ceiling.  Again.

See — this is what I’m talking about — action.  Why doesn’t the media cover this?  Because it doesn’t fit into their current theme on the Democratic Party — so unless you are a C-Span junkie (which I am), you’d have no idea that any of this is going on in the House or the Senate.

Let’s change the media’s understanding of what citizens expect from government.  Accountability — it’s the new black.
