Pete and Repeat

Pete and Repeat

Doesn’t this sound like Washington? For months we have heard nothing but the same thing over and over. It’s like repeating the most boring dream you have ever had over and over, night after night, until you are so afraid to go to sleep because you know what is coming.

Healthcare, Climate Change, Social Justice, Spread the Wealth, I inherited this, the previous administration, yadi ya ya. Geez, you would thing that in 14 months, someone in the White House or some liberal in congress could come up with something new every once in a while. In the past 14 months, I would like to think that I have managed to not repeat myself more than once a month. In Washington, they can’t go 24 hours without repeating something they originally said a year ago.

There should be a law that any bill introduced in congress has a lifespan of 30 calendar days per chamber. If it is not voted on within 30 days by the body that it was introduced in, the bill automatically gets filed in the circular file or recycled into cardboard.

Healthcare has been debated for over a year now. For 12 excruciatingly long months we have had to listen to this reason or that for needing healthcare reform. We have endured countless stories of families in crisis because of rising health care cost, most of which those stories turned out to be false.

Here is something congress won’t tell you about the cost of healthcare. Americans want some form of healthcare reform but not the reform that this administration and this congress are trying to shove down our throats. Because they refuse to listen to the people of this country, the debate on healthcare has cost the tax payers approximately 75.6 MILLION dollars and that is just in annual base salary for the clowns in the house. This doesn’t include the pay for each member of the senate or the cost of traveling around and trying to pedal this snake poison to the American people.

That’s right, we, the tax payers, have shelled out over 75 million dollars just for the privilege of listening to Nancy Pelosi spew her twisted points of view for 12 LOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGG months.

Since the house has managed to waste more than $174,000 on average per member for literally accomplishing nothing over more than a year now, I think they should have to repay all their 2009 salaries.

Note to Nancy: Shut Up and put it to a vote already.
