Operation: Wasting Time

You know things are tough for the Republicans when they start having debates on topics that only distract people from the tough issues of the day. All the Republicans are doing now is wasting time, money, and energy. As Senator Reid of Nevada said today, according to Raw Story: According to Reid, the Republicans will be debating...

A new energy policy? NO.

Will we debate the raging war in Iraq? NO.

Will we address our staggering national debt? NO.

Will we address the seriousness of global warming – NO

Will we address the aging of America? NO.

Will we address America’s education dilemma? NO.

Will we address rising crime statistics? NO.

Will we debate our county’s trade imbalance? NO.

Will we debate Stem Cell Research? NO.

But what we will spend most of the week on is a constitutional amendment that will fail by a large margin, a constitutional amendment on Same Sex Marriage—an effort that failed to pick up a simple majority, when we recently voted on it. Remember, an Amendment to our Constitution requires 67 votes.....

It is no wonder that the Republicans have lost the support and the respect of the American people. They are clearly out of touch.

My husband and I have been married for over thirty years. During those years we've never ever felt like our marriage was being attacked by gays. (Where the heck do these Republicans come up with these issues????) All the Republicans are trying to do is distract us from the real problems in our nation. These Republicans are trying to appease the far right religious extremists in this country. Shame on the Republicans.
