John McCain And House GOP Blow Up Bailout Agreement

John McCain’s rush to Washington to save our economy has only caused delay and damaged the bailout. A bailout agreement was on the table before McCain landed and when the maverick arrived on Capitol Hill he managed to slam dunk it into the trash. What a maverick.

As McCain traveled to Washington, he […]

Pelosi’s Lack of Leadership Stalls Meirs And Bolten Contempt

Once again Nancy Pelosi has shown us that our over paid members of Congress can only handle one task at a time. Or is it that Nancy Pelosi missed the meaning of Speaker of the House and her duty to the American public. Pelosi has decided that while Congress and Bush put together […]

Congress Gives Itself Another Pay Raise

I really think that employees in this country need to start a new trend for job performance and raises. Do a poor job, ignore your boss (us) and then give yourself a raise. Amazing our spines Congress can only seem to do two things well, go on vacation and give themselves another raise. […]

Bush Just Can’t Stop Lying

Your really have to wonder why anyone who makes public statements can’t seem to get it through their head that they can be checked. It takes about five minutes on the internet to either pull up a speech, document or video and yet this concept seems to elude public figures. For some lying, […]

House Pass Iraq Funding And Withdrawal Bill

It’s infuriating that the House was unable to get the votes needed to make this bill veto proof. It appears that there were fifteen democrats including Pete Stark of all people, who voted against the bill. What the heck is up with that?

The Democrats managed to get four Republicans to change […]

House Passes The Temporary Tax Relief Act

Finally the middle class gets a tax break and it’s time for the wealthy slackers to pay up. No big surprise that not one Republican voted for middle class tax relief.

The Gavel:

The House has just passed the Temporary Tax Relief Act of 2007, H.R. 3996 by a vote of […]

Cheney Impeachment Goes To Judiciary Committee

In a stunning move today, the House of Representatives voted to send the impeachment of Dick Cheney to the House Judiciary Committee. What is even more shocking is that the Steny Hoyer out maneuvered the GOP who was trying to shame the democrats by having a House debate. The GOP plan was to […]

House Passes SCHIP Again

It’s infuriating that once again the House SCHIP vote is not veto proof and as we all know Bush will veto the kids and approve his war.

The Gavel

By a vote of 265-142, the House has passed the revised State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), H.R. 3963.

Revised Bill:

Today the House […]
