There, I said it.  Guess that makes me a bad person.

Representative Debbie Wasserman Shultz of Florida is way funnier than Bill Maher could ever hope to be.  A Nancy Pelosi wannabe, she never ceases to amaze me at her ability to bring up the most ridiculous points of view while the country is struggling to get its government to act in a responsible way.

The latest DWS words of wisdom polluting the floor of the House of Representatives: Should the term Obamacare be allowed on the House floor.  Aren’t you glad your precious tax dollars are being spent on political correctness?  Millions of people without jobs and somehow Ms. Wasserman Shultz can find nothing better to do than inquire as to the appropriate use of the term Obamacare.  Really?  How sad is that?


House Republicans and Democrats started debate over whether to defund last year’s healthcare law, and as part of this debate argued as to whether members should be allowed to call that law ‘ObamaCare.’

Frankly I don’t care if they call it Insano-Care.  Sure it was fine when the House’s last embarrassment, also from Florida, Alan Greyson, went on the House floor and said that Republican’s healthcare plan was for sick people to die quickly.  That apparently is A-okay with Democrats, but the use of the term Obamacare is not.  More do as I say, not as I do, from the left-wing me-baggers.

After two House Republicans called the law “Obamacare,” Rep. Wasserman Schultz asked the chairman whether these ‘disparaging’ remarks should be allowed on the House floor.  “That is a disparaging reference to the president of the United States; it is meant as a disparaging reference to the President of the United States, and it is clearly in violation of the House rules against that,’ she said.

Because Wasserman Schultz phrased her complaint as an inquiry on whether to curb the use of the term “Obamacare,’” the chairman said he would not rule on a hypothetical. But he did urge members to ‘refrain from engaging in personalities or descriptions about personalities in general.’

The suggestion of the chairman had no effect on Rep. Denny Rehberg Republican from Montana, who sponsored the amendment to defund the law, stated that he refers to it as ObamaCare and added, “You would think he wants his name attached to his signature legislation.”

I’m embarrassed by our Congress.  When we’re going broke; have more people on Food Stamps (another politically incorrect term,) and more houses in foreclosure than at any other time in our county’s history, the liberals are more concerned as to whether the President might be offended by labeling a law his Vice President thought was a “big effing deal,” with his name.

The more of this kind of B.S. we have to endure, the more I’m convinced we should demand that every member of Congress submit their resignation, regardless of party, and start over.  We need to find real people that are more concerned about the welfare of the country than political correctness.  And while we’re at it, they should, every last one of them, refund their entire salary to the U.S. Treasury, cause in too many cases they represent the most wasteful government spending of all.
