(1) Joe “BP Apologist” Barton was not in Washington, D.C. last week to vote on any pending legislation. On 2nd thought this may be good since he can do less damage that way.
(2) Congress refused to pass a bill that would prohibit the President and Members of Congress to be paid if the Government is “shutdown” because of the lack of passing a budget for 2011. Only the “common people” with “little money” would not be paid. “What is Good for the Goose is Good for the Gander.”
