[su_right_ad]Okay, so I exaggerate, but only slightly.

Republican Rep. Charlie Dent, who is in a Pennsylvania district Mitt Romney won in 2012 just 51 to 48 percent, last weeklamented the kinds of issues House Republicans have been taking up so far in this new 114th Congress. In his words:

“Week one, we had a Speaker election that didn’t go as well as a lot of us would have liked. Week two, we spent a lot of time talking about deporting children, a conversation a lot of us didn’t want to have. Week three, we’re debating reportable rape and incest — again, not an issue a lot of us wanted to have a conversation about. I just can’t wait for week four.”

So what about Week Four? It will be about (drum roll) repealing Obamacare. House Republicans, leadership aides confirm, will move forward with a bill on full repeal of the health care law, something Republicans have done half a dozen times now. (They have voted more than 50 times on measures relating to changing the law, including six times for full repeal). So why are Republicans doing this again? Frankly, because newly elected freshmen members haven’t voted for it before, and they want the opportunity to do so.

    Well it seems week 4 will put a large dent into Dent possibility of coming back to his cushy job.

      While Majority leader mCONoll proudly puffed up his chest saying the senate would vote on more amendments to the KXL pipeline he didn’t mention that R’s voted down a provision to use only US steel on the line.

        Indeed… so focus on Jobs (only 35 KXL vs. 1000’s from infra-structure bills they blocked), and focus on families & middle-class (by protecting unfair practices & absurd prices for the health insurance industry), and then keeping jobs in the U.S. by allowing foreign steel for their dirty pipeline? I see a despicable pattern here!

    Thing is I can see this being an actual headline 250 years from now…with the article mentioning both of the last remaining Republicans in existence by name.

        Yup, it’s right next to my Tea Party authorized pocket Constitution.

          Is that the one that says a black Mooslim communist socialist born in Hawaii can’t be president?

          • tiredoftea January 28th, 2015 at 4:07 pm

            That’s the one. It’s in the paragraph just before how we have to have guns to stop muslim usurper illegal aliens from becoming President. Or, just because.
