GOP Congressman Wants To Defund Air Force One
If you stayed home on during the midterm elections, then this is what you gifted the rest of us with. Republicans don’t believe that House Speaker John Boehner is aggressive enough, so they’re jumping off the crazy cliff in hopes that he will follow their lead.
[su_center_ad]Via the Washington Post:
Late Tuesday, Rep. Paul C. Broun (R-Ga.) called for Boehner to not invite Obama to deliver the State of the Union address next year. Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.) suggested that the budgets for White House operations, including for Air Force One, should be decreased. Other conservatives have mentioned censuring the president, impeaching him or suing the administration over its immigration actions.
“I’d rather defund Air Force One,” Huelskamp said. “Congress took a 19 percent cut on its budgets — we should do the same for the White House.” On the State of the Union, he added: “In the spirit of George Washington, he could send it to us in writing. It’d save some time.”
Tiffany Willis from Liberal America writes, “They just really can’t stand having a black man flying around in that nice jet, can they? It is driving them BONKERS. He needs to learn his place!”
That’s right. We can’t have our first black President acting like an uppity negro thinking he can fly around with security just like his predecessors.
How can we even take Republicans seriously if this is how they spend their workdays? I picture them sitting around giving awards to any of their colleagues who can think of stupid sh*t to present to the Senate, which will inevitably fail. Like voting to repeal Obamacare for the eleventy hundredth time.
I suppose Republicans expect the President to hitchhike around the country. Defunding Congress would be a better route to take. If I don’t work, I don’t pay my bills or eat. The same should apply to them.
Obviously, we need to drug test Congress.
