Former Speaker Pelosi said “We have to pass the (Obamacare) bill so we can find out what’s in it.” Former chair of the House Rules Committee, Rep. Louise Slaughter, wanted to use “Deem and Pass” to get Obamacare through the House without a real vote (we didn’t actually pass the bill, but let’s just say that we did).
And now Louise is going after Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas because of his wife’s income. Well, it’s not about Ginnie Thomas’ income. It’s about Obamacare. You see, Ms. Slaughter doesn’t want Justice Thomas to be there on the Supreme Court to vote to repeal Obamacare when it comes before the court shortly.
I’m really surprised that Ms. Slaughter even has time for Congress right now. I thought that she would be on Wall Street protesting and calling for revolution along with Al Sharpton, the mindless hippies, union thugs and former White House Jobs Czar, Van Jones. Just read this excerpt from her web site as of October 5th, 2011 at 2:30 PM:
“It’s time for all Americans to pay their fair share.”
WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Louise Slaughter, Ranking Member of the House Rules Committee, today released the following statement on the three-week old “Occupy Wall Street” movement that began in New York City and is rapidly spreading across the country.
“For thirty years, America’s middle class has watched its living standards erode while the wealthiest one percent amass fortunes that would make the Robber Barons blush. The gap between the haves and have not’s[sic] continues to widen in the wake of the 2008 recession, precipitated by the banking industry. Yet we are told we cannot afford to raise taxes on millionaires and billionaires to pay for better roads and help close this deficit? That’s not right. It’s time for all Americans to pay their fair share. And I’m so proud to see the Occupy Wall Street movement standing up to this rampant corporate greed and peacefully participating in our democracy.”
“Robber Barons,” really? Is this October, 2011 in the United States of America? Or is this October, 1917 in Russia? So Louise Slaughter gets taxpayer dollars to talk about how proud she is of the so-called revolutionaries on her government funded website. If you’ve seen the interviews, you know that most of them don’t even know why they are demonstrating. I don’t think this is what Russian immigrant, naturalized United States citizen and comedian, Yakov Smirnoff means when he says: “What a country.”
