The Republican House Of Congress have become like sheep with Grover Norquist as their shepherd. When these republicans sign Grover’s pledge. Of no new taxes. Which he call “Americans for tax reform.” They, (the republicans), now represent Grover and, not the people. Grover said, “his pledge is the voice of the people.” Grover is implying that his pledge is a part of the constitution. What I would say to Grover. That he is not an elected official of government. Therefore his pledge is irrelevant to the constitution.
I would also remind Grover and the republicans. It would take a petition sign by 60% of all register voter in the states. To be the voice of the people. Therefore this is the voice of one, (Grover Norquist.) One citizen voice doesn’t speak for the many. The paper this pledge in written on is as useless as toilet paper. Grover’s pledge didn’t elect these republicans into congress. Grover and the Republicans want a single-party state.
The people voted these republicans into congress. Grover doesn’t pay these republicans salaries. It is the people’s, (taxes) that pay the republicans salaries. These republicans want
to cut spending on the poor, seniors, and middle class. These republicans need to start cutting their own salaries first. With a 10% approval rating in congress by the people. If these republicans were working in the private sector they would be fired. Since these republicans are working for the people. You as a register voter are their boss, and have
the power to fire them at the ballot box.
The republicans have misquoted the constitution over and over. By saying the President is raising taxes. When the constitution gave congress the power to raise or lower taxes. Not the President. These republicans have taken an oath to defend the constitution. After the health care bill was passed in congress by the House, the Senate, sign into law by the President, upheld by the supreme court as constitutional. These republicans have fought this law 31 times and lost. It seem that these republicans want to have control of all three branches of government. That is what they had in the old U.S.S.R. One party rule. Where only the elite the rich and wealthy benefited. Every one else was given propaganda.
The House Republicans put on a charade on TV for the people. I call this the, “Republican TV Court.” These republicans declare this health care law is unconstitutional and they were going to repeal this bill because of the mandate is a tax. Republicans say this mandate is the largest tax increase in modern times. In essence this mandate is a penalty for those who choose to disobey this health care law. A penalty is collected once and doesn’t have any effect on the people taxes. This charade is a bridge to no-where and, cost the tax payers 50 million dollars. The charade by republicans of “Fast and Ferocious” was a bridge to no-where and a waste of taxpayers money.
Do these republicans speak and bury their head in the sand? Not even the swiftest horse can over take the word once spoken. A lie told yesterday, is a lie today, and will be a lie tomorrow. This charade by republicans is an illusion. We don’t need actors in congress to put on the dog and pony show. And we don’t need those that need to be lead by a shepherd, (Grover Norquist.) What we need in congress are those that can think and, reason with a logical mind on their own in The Republican House of congress.
