The GOP Congress Critters have voluntarily made themselves partisan eunuchs by signing private citizen Grover Norquist' absurd pledge on tax rates. They should be left howling useless in the wilderness for 40 years, but their retrograde obstructionism may have such disastrous consequences for our economy and commonwealth that those of us harmed by their misfeasance may ourselves be howling in anger and ire or screaming in fear as we all roll over the fiscal cliff into the GOP-generated quagmire of despair..
Note. Right after I posted this, I found Jana's comment at Madville Times quoting a poster at Huffington Post. It details the GOP Eunuchs great nothingness and irrelevance.
From Jana's comment:
One commenter at the Huffington Post shows us how serious they were:
Two Years Ago, John Boehner promised to be "Laser Focused on Jobs and the Economy" So what has the GOP House been up to?
"House Bills passed:
46 Bills on Abortion
113 Bills on Religion
73 Bills on Family Relationships
36 Bills on Marriage
72 Bills on Firearms
604 Bills on Taxation
437 Bills on Govt Investigations
Bills attempted and failed to be passed even by the GOP:
33 attempts to Defund Obamacare.....Failed
15 attempts to Cut Funding for Planned Parenthood......Failed
3 Attempts to Cut Funding for VA Hospitals.......Failed.
GOP blocked bills:
Blocked bill to aid Small Business
Blocked Unemployment extension
Blocked Bank Reform Bills
Blocked Campaign Finance Reform and open Contributions Law
Blocked MULTIPLE Jobs Bills
