  • They applied a bandaid to prevent themselves from being inconvenienced.

  • You know what happens to band aids, they get stinky and don't stick too well after exposure to water and the elements.

    We can expose these actions by holding our elected officials accountable for their voting records and personal gains on the taxpayers dime.

  • Actually, I have e-mailed them several times and got the canned response back.

    When you see Cleaver and Claire in Missouri, keep in mind that when their lips move they are lying about everything.

    No Frank Church who would personally take the time to help a fellow citizen out. Or a few other of the old-timers.

  • This was too funny to pass up. Don't believe the quotes. They are a joke. It came from thewashingtonfancy.com. It picks on both major parties when they need it.

    "WASHINGTON, DC -- Last week, Congress came together to pass something, overcoming partisan politics in a unanimous vote to "help struggling congress members." Provisions in the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act that would have helped prevent lawmakers and government officials from insider trading on stocks was repealed in 10 seconds in the Senate, 14 seconds in the House, and was immediately signed into law by President Obama, reversing the law he himself introduced just one year ago.

    This bipartisan coming together on an issue of such import to the American people has galvanized lawmakers from both parties. "I think we've sent a clear message that we are committed to helping ourselves to more," said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, while Rep. John Boehner wiped an orange tear from his eye, saying: "This really is a huge win for me.""
