TQ points out this evening that when the House of Representatives passed the “Cap and Tax” bill that if enacted would certainly raise our energy costs through the roof, the actual text of the bill they were voting on wasn’t available to the Congressmen being asked to vote on it. Yeah, this is our federal government, so caught up in global warming hysteria that they can’t even bother to complete drafting a bill to impoverish us all in order to combat ludicrous problems that don’t even exist before they demand elected officials to endorse them.
Through a series of parliamentary inquiries, the Republicans learned that the 300-plus page managers’ amendment, added to the bill last night in the House Rules Committee, has not even been been integrated with the official copy of the 1,090-page bill at the House Clerk’s desk, let alone in any other location. The two documents are side-by-side at the desk as the clerk reads through the instructions in the 300 page document for altering the 1,090 page document.
But they cannot be simply combined, because the amendment contains 300 pages of items like this: “Page 15, beginning line 8, strike paragraph (11)…” How many members of Congress do you suppose have gone through it all to see how it changes the bill?
Global Warming is apparently so urgent that we can’t even wait until members of Congress know what they’re voting on.
This hysteria, or perhaps the new religion of the secular humanist crowd is all the rage within most of the Democrats representing Virginia in Congress, including our very own Gerry Connolly who once again voted for a bill he certainly couldn’t have actually read. So what if this raises energy prices through the roof? AlGore says human-caused global warming true, Pelosi demands that there ought to be a law, and dutifully Democrats rams this ridiculous scheme down our throats without even bothering to demand they understand what this scheme actually is before they vote to approve it.
Our federal government is entirely out of control, and shame on Gerry Connolly and the rest for voting in favor of this bill without having even read the darned thing.
