An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) on Friday morning said GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry is pushing for a Congress that works just half of its time in Washington, and the other half at members’ local Wal-Mart.
Congratulations Memphis! Once again, you make Tennessee appear to be full of idiots by continuing to elect this bozo to Congress! Stevie, I’m afraid you aren’t qualified to work at Wally World. You’d have to have at least a little bit of common sense to be hired
Speaking on the House floor, Cohen was critiquing a GOP bill that could come up next week that would require Congress to approve all federal regulations. Cohen said this would require Congress to be in session even longer, which goes against candidate Perry’s prescription for a half-time Congress.
Actually, no, it wouldn’t. Well, it wouldn’t if y’all actually did the job you were hired to do, and stay out of OUR business. You’d have plenty of time if y’all just stop creating more useless programs, spending money that isn’t yours, and WE don’t have.
“How can we work half-time under President Perry?” Cohen asked. “We’d have to be working time and a half. And we know there’s not enough money for overtime, and President Perry doesn’t want us to do that, he wants us to get a separate job when we go home.
Heaven forbid if y’all were actually efficient, and could do the job set out in the Constitution, instead of playing games with the American taxpayers money. Personally, I’d like to see your salary cut in half, or maybe more!
“We go back to San Antonio, we work half-time as a congressman and half-time we work at Wal-Mart,” Cohen added. “That’s what he’s suggesting.”
Perry has suggested that Congress only work part-time in order to reduce Washington’s power and save money.
Dude, I’m not sure if you are aware of this or not, but San Antonio is in Texas, and YOU supposedly live in Tennessee. Why would you get a job in Texas? Maroon! Evidently, Cohen is not aware that Congress is SUPPOSE to be a part time job, not a life time career. Aren’t most of you idjits lawyers? How about you go home, and practice law. Heaven knows, y’all could use all the practice you can get! You’ve been getting rich off the sweat of OUR labors for long enough!
