Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Dems’ lame duck strategy: Screw the constituents!

Not much different than their strategy since President Kick#ss was sworn in, is it?  Details:

Democratic House members are so worried about the fall elections they’re leaving Washington on July 30, a full week earlier than normal—and they won’t return until mid-September. Members gulped when National Journal’s Charlie Cook, the Beltway’s leading political handicapper, predicted last month “the House is gone,” meaning a GOP takeover. He thinks Democrats will hold the Senate, but with a significantly reduced majority.

The rush to recess gives Democrats little time to pass any major laws. That’s why there have been signs in recent weeks that party leaders are planning an ambitious, lame-duck session to muscle through bills in December they don’t want to defend before November. Retiring or defeated members of Congress would then be able to vote for sweeping legislation without any fear of voter retaliation.

“I’ve got lots of things I want to do” in a lame duck, Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D., W. Va.) told reporters in mid June. North Dakota’s Kent Conrad, chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, wants a lame-duck session to act on the recommendations of President Obama’s deficit commission, which is due to report on Dec. 1. “It could be a huge deal,” he told Roll Call last month. “We could get the country on a sound long-term fiscal path.” By which he undoubtedly means new taxes in exchange for extending some, but not all, of the Bush-era tax reductions that will expire at the end of the year.

In the House, Arizona Rep. Raul Grijalva, co-chairman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, told reporters last month that for bills like “card check”—the measure to curb secret-ballot union elections—”the lame duck would be the last chance, quite honestly, for the foreseeable future.”

This lame duck session approach can best be described as “liberals’ revenge against the country they hate so much”!  It’s like “I’ll show those hayseeds for voting my leftist #ss out of office!  I’ll ram more unpopular legislation down their throats on the way out the door…that’ll show them!”

These anti-American vermin are sick.

  1. Let them have the lame duck sessions. They’ve not been able to move the legislation through the Senate in the last two years, and still wont be able to get cloture after November, even with several Dem Senators on the way out. Those 2/3 left behind in the next sessions, as well as those reelected will have to live and compromise with the each other in the next session. If they do it, nothing the Dems want will get passed in the next session. Let the House try like they have for the past two years… How’s cap and trade doing in the Senate?

  2. Revealing themselves to be the dirtbags they have always been. Seems they’re angry that we have the audacity to exercise our rights as citizens to kick them out.
