I am not voting for the bill. I have been very outspoken on this. How can you take a 1,600 page bill, get the rule on it today, and expect Members to cast a sensible vote on that kind of bill? You can't do it. I don't even know what's in the bill.If only the other Member adopted Rep. Jones' position on bills that could not be read, could not be understood, but were deemed so critical by House leadership that to vote "no" was to constitute a serious violation. Rep. Jones has paid for his independence and his willingness to stand up for America rather than just the Republican Party. He deserves our thanks.
...the typical Beltway apparatchik – profiting from the revolving door between the military, heavy industry and academia.Carter was also panicking about (non-existent) Iraqi and Iranian WMDs as long ago as 1996, and he supported a military strike against North Korea if they tested a ballistic missile.
He was and remains a key actor in the ever evolving “policy” of demonization of Russia.
