Think not that this Drilling ban controversy will go away by wishing it to. That is what Tim Walberg of Michigan’s 7th District, seems to be saying by posting the link below. Tim has been doing all he could and can from the beginning to the present. Tim’s latest blog points out that even the liberal Washington Post is getting upset with the Pelosi Reid tag team for not even allowing debate let alone votes on Energy bills. Below is a link to Tim’s Blog.
How long they think they can get away with this charade is equal to how gullible (read stupid) they think the American people are. It appears that they think they can do nothing forever.
Pelosi has even stopped all appropriation bills according to the article for fear that energy amendments may be added forcing a vote on the bill. As the article quotes. “The result threatens to be the first time since at least 1950 that lawmakers will go home for the August recess without either chamber having passed a single appropriations bill.”
Another telling and obvious question is raised by the Washington Post article.
“When they took the majority, House Democrats proclaimed that “bills should generally come to the floor under a procedure that allows open, full and fair debate consisting of a full amendment process that grants the Minority the right to offer its alternatives.” Why not on drilling?”
The final sentence says it all. Sums up what all this hub bub has been about.
“If drilling opponents really have the better of this argument, why are they so worried about letting it come to a vote.”
From me I think Pelosi and Harry “blowing in the wind” Reid should start looking for another day job.
