Hey America, let’s waste money

doucheI’d like to nominate Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) for the money-wasting douchebag of the week. I’m not just saying this because he introduced the “Marriage Protection Amendment” to the Constitution.

“Marriage in the United States shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman. Neither this Constitution, nor the constitution of any State, shall be construed to require that marriage or the legal incidents thereof be conferred upon any union other than the union of a man and a woman.”

I’m saying this because according to teh maths, the sucker has no way of passing. At what point do the American people get fed up with the wasted money of fake investigations and symbolic votes?

Guys like this don’t care about wasting OUR money because they’re doing exactly what their bank rollers (Citizens United and Koch) want them to do.

Tim Huelskamp doesn’t care what his colleagues think either.

State Rep. J.R. Claeys (R-Salina) stressed that a gay marriage ban is not a “legislative priority of mine” and said he doesn’t see a chance for Huelskamp’s amendment ever passing. Asked if he believes Huelskamp should have made the proposal, Claeys answered: “I am not sure how to diplomatically sidestep this question.”

He has to do flamboyantly outrageous stuff like this because his funding sources demand it. If he won’t do it, the Kochs will find someone else who will. Over and over again in every state they can. (Kasich’s state is wholly owned.)

Mr. Fiscal Cliff is stealing from Americans twice: once by wasting our money on shit we didn’t ask for and twice by NOT doing the job he’s being paid to do. Tim Huelskamp is on Small Business and Veterans’ Affairs committees. You’d think he’d be pretty busy. I guess that small business in America is peachy keen these days. I suppose that all the veterans affairs are in order.

There is a sickness across our country of politicians wasting taxpayer dollars to  introduce legislation that the majority of Americans do not want simply because they are being paid handsomely by the overlords to do so. And sometimes, these hair-brained bills pass (like in Ohio and Iowa and North Carolina).

And Democrats, WTF? This guy ran unopposed in 2012.

  1. Great post! Marriage Protection Act eh? What is that quip Uppity always uses about Republicans like Newt who want to protect marriage? Something about “they love marriage so much that’s why they get married so many times??” The money angle makes a lot of sense. That and the apparent desire to be divisive.

  2. It’s a game. Certainly there are people in this country who are not for same sex marriage rights, but their numbers are falling fast. These folks are paid by their owners to pump up that divisiveness and to create it when it does not exist.

  3. Yep, and with all the divisiveness they don’t have to solve the real problems of jobs and helping veterans.

  4. Marriage Protection Act

    What’s he gonna protect it from? 🙄

    Thanks for the recommendation too!

  5. He’s protecting it from teh gays, because this can only lead to polygamy and bestiality.

  6. Great post Sophie. We’ve seen these assholes waste time for the past several years, Benghazi, abortion, the repubs in the house just voted on their 30-something-th declaration that they don’t like Obama/Romney care. They have no time for authentic American business. These stooges are truly bought and paid for.

  7. Color me shocked–no one came here to defend the “brilliance” of Citizens United” or the legitimacy of ALEC.

  8. Hey folks.. I’m at work and on a phone so my blog-ability is limited but Morsi is out, their Constitution has been suspended, and Egypt’s Chief Justice is minding the store until they regroup.

  9. I’ll throw up a post Sophie.

  10. SCREECH!!!

  11. Excellent post, imust. this issue of jackass politicians wasting our money on stuff like this pointless bill needs way more attention and the guilty ones (too numerous to count) need to be publicly flogged.

    And they bunch up on Capitol Hill need to stop wasting our money on hearings intended to do nothing more than get them face time on the teevee so they can use the sound bytes in their campaigns.
