The national debt has been classified as the biggest threat to our national security, yes even bigger than global warming, cooling, or change. Each of us can determine whether it is warming, cooling, or change just as we each can determine if we or man, women, or something in between according to the Marxist/Progressives. Remember in the Marxist world of make believe, nothing is defined because everything depends upon how we “feel.” Also, in the Marxist world and the swampland world of Washington D.C. real problems are those they determine will give them publicity and votes the next time they run for office; in other words, if I have to take a stand on anything remotely controversial, then we should not have a vote in congress. If the bill is meaningless and makes me look like I am doing the business of the people, we must have a vote.
Congress refuses to hold budget hearings in committee and then vote on a budget bill. Congress refuses to do its constitutional mandated duty of setting immigration law and instead have the executive and the judiciary branch handle immigration law even though they have no constitutional authority in the matter of naturalization and immigration. Congress refuses to hold open and transparent committee hearings on budget matters and other matters and instead passes omnibus bills with self-imposed and meaningless deadlines.
But congress does the people’s business or, so they claim. A new bill floating through Congress may change the way musicians are paid. The House passed the Music Modernization Act with overwhelming support on Wednesday. It updates copyright and licensing laws for the first time in nearly two decades. The bill was introduced by House Judiciary Committee members Bob Goodlatte and Jerrold Nadler and simplifies royalties and mechanical payments to artists in the digital age. Supporters of the bill say it stands to benefit industry professionals by setting a statutory right to recognition for contributors like producers, sound engineers, and others.
The Senate will consider the bill on Tuesday, May 15 and it is expected to pass.
You can rest this week-end knowing the congress is doing the business of the people. Please Freedom Loving Americans, let’s drain the swamp of these pompous and freedom sucking frauds we call congressmen and senators.
