Don’t Tell Them the Truth…


It’s going to be an interesting day in the House of Representatives today.  The "New York Times Resolution" is going to be debated further because, you know, there’s nothing else that needs worked on in the country today that might take priority over demogoguery and bloviating.  *rolls eyes*

Here’s the Republican proposal bill.  (PDF)  Here is the marked up version that the Dems…um…propose as a substitute.  (PDF…mwahahaha)  (Rep. Pelosi has also put out a short statement about the idiocy of a GOP Bill that relies on someone else — the WH and the media — to do its fact-finding for it, since there has been so little oversight done by the Do-Nothing Rubber Stamp Republican Congress.)

Rep. Barney Frank will be leading the Democratic response on all of this from the floor.  You know, I don’t recall this sort of GOP antic when the Judy Miller Pravda articles were being printed…

Had enough?  Want a Congress that works on issues that actually matter to you?  Vote for Democrats.
