The U.S. House of Representatives has been the worst House in many years. They have passed few substantial bills. Instead, the majority party in the House the Republicans is having an intra-party debate over whether or not to pursue impeachment against President Barack Obama.
The House Republicans have separated into three factions, the first wants to impeach the president, the second wants to sue him, and the third agrees with the first, however fears political damage and knows that the Senate will not remove the president from office. You also hear from the factions that the House Republicans cannot work to impeach the president because they just don’t have the time.
Rep. Randy Weber (R-TX, “The president deserves to be impeached. Plain and simple,” he said. “But. . . we have so much on our plate that it’s not practical.” (MSNBC)
Congress has passed 126 bills, putting it on track to be the least productive Congress on record. (theHill)
Rep. Weber believes that the president “definitely deserves” to be impeached, but well they are just too busy.
PEVI would like to know, what are they busy with? Passing bills to help our nation? Nope.
PEVI calls on Rep. Weber and the rest of the House Republicans to stop playing and begin to govern. There are plenty of bills they should be discussing that would actually have substance and improve our nation.
For instance, they could be working on, H.R. 1648 the Protecting America’s Workers Act, H.R. 2821 the American Jobs Act, H.R. 4207 the JOBS Act, H.R. 4162 the Job Creation through Energy Efficient Manufacturing Act, H.R. 1524 the Make it in America: Create Clean Energy Manufacturing Jobs in America Act, H.R. 2863 the GREEN Jobs Act, H.R. 5051 the Protect Women’s Health from Corporate Interference Act, H.R. 1199 the Safe Schools Improvement Act, and H.R. 1652 the Student Non-Discrimination Act. These are just a few of the many bills in the House that the House Republicans should be talking about and working on instead of playing around with talks of impeaching or using the president.
PEVI urges all to contact the your House Representative and tell them that you want to House of Representatives to be focused on governing the nation not focusing on intra-party fights and playing around while getting paid by our tax dollars. Go here to contact your Representative: Contact
