#DoYourJobHouseGOP is the Rallying Cry of Americans Who Are Tired of the Do Nothing Koch/ALEC Republicans in Congress

The GOP Conference will be meeting at 3 p.m. as they are asking members not to leave town.  Are they going to come out of that meeting cheering and fist pumping like they did when they decided to shut down Government?

While looking for that video I found this video where the GOP House changed a standing rule of the House to take away a Privilege Motion from members.  Speaker Boehner and his GOP are nothing but unethical. underhanded scumbags:

Time to bring back the following paragraph from an article on Voices on 30 September on the day following the GOP Saturday night vote to shut down Government:
The story that broke yesterday about some members of the House Republicans being drunk on the House floor is despicable and every last Republican drinking before the vote should be resigning from the House but that will never happen as they only care about their re-election and celebrating their victory after the vote they know will shutdown government.  Did leadership have to get drunk to push the garbage of a bill through the House since they all lack backbones?  Are they ever going to admit that President Obama won the election, the Democrats picked up seats in the Senate and House, and that more people voted for Dems in House districts then GOP.  Only through gerrymandering do the Tea Party GOP still control the House.
House Republicans led by Speaker Boehner and GOP Leadership are the most unethical members of the House I have witnessed.  As a group, these Koch/ALEC Republican puppets put cutting taxes  for the wealthy over what is best for all the American people.  Note that Sen Cruz who seems to be the defacto head of the House helped defeat the Border Bill today that House GOP led by Boehner touted -- imagine that!  That 3 p.m. meeting before the Republican led House leaves DC for five weeks should be interesting as the Border Bill is discussed.  If we get video of the spoiled brats posing as adults leaving the meeting, will post on here as an Update.

Moving forward to today's activities by the Koch/ALEC GOP House which is the day after the GOP in the House voted to sue the President over the same thing they supported President Bush on with his Drug Prescription Plan -- delay a portion for a year.  This is why the Koch Bros/ALEC GOP House led by Speaker Boehner stands today as the most worthless house in my lifetime and probably the modern era.  Want an example of worthless -- try the Border Bill which Boehner couldn't get passed today and then urges the President to take action.  That is the same President Obama that Boehner/House GOP are suing for taking action delaying a small portion of ACA for a year.  Confused yet?  Maybe this article from The National Memo will help explain what has happened today:
House Republicans pulled their embattled immigration legislation on Thursday, after failing to find enough Republicans to vote for the pared-down funding bill. The embarrassing defeat for Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) greatly increases the odds that the House will not do anything to act on the border crisis before leaving Washington for its August recess. 
The Republican majority will hold a conference meeting at 3pm EST, after which House leaders will announce whether they will try again to hold a vote. 
The House had planned to vote on two separate measures before leaving town: A $659 million funding bill to respond to the humanitarian crisis at the border, and a bill that would bar President Obama from expanding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which grants temporary work permits and relief from deportation for some young immigrants. But House leaders failed to gather the 218 votes needed to move forward.
Ironically, Speaker Boehner — who, one day earlier, advanced his plan to sue President Obama for allegedly exceeding his authority with executive orders — urged President Obama to act alone on securing the border. In a statement, Boehner and fellow House leaders Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Steve Scalise (R-LA), and Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), said: 
This situation shows the intense concern within our conference – and among the American people – about the need to ensure the security of our borders and the president’s refusal to faithfully execute our laws. There are numerous steps the president can and should be taking right now, without the need for congressional action, to secure our borders and ensure these children are returned swiftly and safely to their countries. For the past month, the House has been engaged in intensive efforts to pass legislation that would compel the president to do his job and ensure it can be done as quickly and compassionately as possible. Through an inclusive process, a border bill was built by listening to members and the American people that has the support not just of a majority of the majority in the House, but most of the House Republican Conference. We will continue to work on solutions to the border crisis and other challenges facing our country. 
The House’s failure to gather enough votes for the bill represents a huge defeat in the first legislative test for McCarthy, the new majority leader, and Scalise, the new whip. The pair were apparently outmaneuvered by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), who reportedly met with more than a dozen House Republicans on Wednesday night to press them to oppose leadership’s bill.

Do you want to go through this bunch of nonsense for two more years?  Know I don't and why I am supporting Democrats in 2014 to move the Country forward and show the wealthy Koch Bros and other wealthy Republican supporters/donors that all their money cannot buy the Country -- can only buy a group of unethical Republcians who put getting reelected over what is best for the Country.  The Libertarian Koch Bros/ALEC are slowly destroying the Republican Party.

Republicans like Boehner, Senate Majority Leader McConnell, RNC Chair Priebus and Republican elected officials up and down the line have their heads so far buried in the sand to what they are doing to destroy the Republican Party that they cannot come up for air as they sold out the American people starting years ago.  They will go down in history IMHO as the GOP officials responsible for the destruction of the Republican Party by selling out for greed, power, and getting reelected.

The legacies of President Dwight D Eisenhower, President Theodore Roosevelt, and President Abraham Lincoln will remain as good people with common sense try to pick up the pieces of a flawed Republican Party where greed, racism, and self importance made elected Republicans at all levels sell out the American people. Time to OUST the Republican Party of NO!

  1. I disagree with you on this one. I think, as a nation, we are better off when the GOP House does absolutely nothing, and obstructs. Maybe people will be so fed up with them that a couple dozen will lose their jobs in November. It won't take many.
