I’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.
