  •  Yeah - Shines a light on how ridiculous pols are: (11+ / 0-)

    If I were a member of Congress, I would think to myself, "I can't vote on contempt b/c I voted in favor of all this and I will end up looking ridiculous"

    Which is why I'll never be an elected pol, I just don't have what it takes.  One needs to be able to be unshameable.

    "How can the United States be the Greatest Nation ever if it is the only modern nation where citizens hold bake sales to pay for life saving medical care?" Single payer is coming but how many people will die before it becomes the only solution?

    •  Chances are (0+ / 0-)

      Issa doesn't even know he voted for it.  And he probably didn't know what he was voting for when he did vote.  How many times are politicians asked about their vote on the issue and they have no clue about the issue or their vote?  McCain got tripped up on that in 2008, IIRC.
