Time For A Civics Lesson, Sue?
Is this what we should be teaching our children about how the government works, or is this a bob and weave on the part of the congressional majority and the Administration?
It seems the president has signed a bill into law that wasn't passed by Congress, and you and your Bush enabling colleagues have said, "No problem. It's law as far as we're concerned."
We suggest everyone read the entire article and see this if you can make heads or tails of this constitutional tap dance. Maybe we can turn to our congresswoman for some clarification.
Help us out here, Sue. How can this be? Do you really believe that a $2 billion dollar mistake is nothing to get all concerned about...or is it simply that you all don't want to have to recast your votes to cut aid for students, the poor and the elderly during an election year...a vote that squeaked by last time with your proud "Yay" putting it over the top?
How pathetic is that?
Politics is about ideas and principles, but as they affect people. Politics is local. Sue Kelly is vulnerable, even in this district, if you keep making the right case.
If this were about a non-binding acclaimation, that's one thing, but this is about the budget reconciliation bill...VERY LARGE DOLLARS that impact the taxes and services of all New Yorkers.
Sue... what do you actually propose?
Sue... what is your POSITION on the issue (don't call Texas and cheat)?
In case your not sure...
