Some are saying there is a media blackout going on. The House floor has no lights, no camera, no microphone. NO coverage.
Continuing (My Friday blog post “BREAKING NEWS…”) the news about Democratic Congress shutting off the lights while the Republicans stayed in an effort to resolve the energy crisis last Friday. The saga continues.
The Republicans show up again today to a darkened House floor to continue their modern day “Boston Tea Party.”
A request was made to the President Friday asking for a special session to be held.
The letter read (in part?)…
“Since Speaker Pelosi has decided not to keep the House in session to allow this vote to take place, we urge you to use the power vested in you by the Constitution to convene an immediate energy special session of Congress.”
The request was denied Monday. A spokesman for the White House, said
“We don’t have plans to call Congress into session — it won’t make a difference if Democratic leaders are unwilling to bring up a bill for an up-down vote”
Senator McCain said,
“Congress should come back in session, and I’m willing to come off the campaign trail.”
Senator Obama wants us to check the air pressure on our tires to solve the crisis.
(((PASS THE WORD)))
I’d sure like to have a list of WHO showed up on the House Floor — because it’s going to affect my future vote — as it should YOURS.
To the Republican Congress: As a proud American I can’t express my depth of gratitude for your courageous “Boston Tea Party.” Today I hold my head just a little bit higher with pride.
I can’t in good conscience vote for a democratic president who is part of the problem and contributes to the like mindset — CAN YOU?
