Congress Isn't Too Popular Are They?

Saw this on Facebook this morning and figured I would share.

A driver is stuck in a traffic jam on the highway. Nothing is moving. Suddenly, a man knocks on the window. The driver rolls down the window and asks, “What’s going on?”

“Terrorists have kidnapped Congress and are asking for a $10 million dollar ransom. Otherwise, they’re going to douse them all in gasoline and set them on fire. We’re going from car to car, taking up a collection.”

“How much is everyone giving, on average?” the driver asks.

The man replies, “About a gallon.”

So Now Democrats Grow A Pair?!?

So what gives? During the first 2 years of the Obama administration the Democrats who controlled Congress and rarely could get enough of their members together to pass gas let alone formulate and pass legislation have now somehow grown some balls.

Unhappy with the compromise Obama made with the GOP on Bush tax cuts, the lame duck Democrats somehow gathered enough moxy to actually reject the Obama proposal today, albeit through a non binding vote.

House Democrats have rejected a tax cut deal struck by President Barack Obama with the Republican opposition.

The non-binding vote was led by liberals angry about the extension of tax cuts for the rich.

The White House had spent the week lobbying Democrats to back the bill and had appeared to be winning support.

Unless the Congress acts, all American taxpayers face a big hike in their tax bill beginning in January and millions will see unemployment payments end.

“We will continue discussions with the president and our Democratic and Republican colleagues in the days ahead to improve the proposal before it comes to the House floor for a vote,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said.

No doubt voting with your ideology is a lot easier after you’ve already had your butt handed to you in an election and you don’t have to worry about the next one. Too bad…

3 Weeks Before The Election?

I know it is an uphill battle having to fight the money and power of our lone Congressional Representative Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, but don’t you think opening a campaign office in South Dakota’s largest city 3 weeks prior to the election is just a bit late in the game? This came to me via a tweet from Chris Lien this morning:

Hey everybody! With only 21 days to go until Election Day, we have a great way to keep building the momentum for this campaign! We’re going to hold a ribbon-cutting for our Sioux Falls office tomorrow (Thursday) from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and we want YOU to be there. Our office is located on the northwest corner of 8th Street and Minnesota Avenue (201 N. Minnesota Ave., Sioux Falls, SD).
