(H/T to Warren Ellis for the “Transmetropolitan” quote.)
Well, it’s official. The GOP has taken hold of The House and already, the fuckery is underway!
-Darrell Issa (R-CA.) who’s the new chair of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has already contacted about 150 companies and asked them what regulations do they want to see disappear.
-The newly minted Speaker of the House, John Boehner (R-OH.) has already gotten rules passed that will let further tax cuts not be offset by increased revenue elsewhere while setting a vote to repeal Health Care Reform. (By the way, that bill is called “Repealing the job-killing Health Care Law Act“. What? They couldn’t get doody-faced past the parliamentarian?)
-New GOP house members are using the upcoming vote on the Debt Ceiling as a weapon to start dismantling Social Security. Otherwise, the whole country starts cosplaying the Mad Max movies.
-Oh, and that thing about reading out loud the Constitution before the official start of Congress? It’ll cost the taxpayers a million dollars.
By the way, everyone who chose not to vote for the Democrats to teach them a lesson. How’s that working out for you?
