Well. folks get what they pay for, or rather they get what their bosses pay for; and the GOPer bosses in Louisiana and LA01 are sure getting what they paid for in Steve Scalise. So far he's been a 100% conservative Bush ass-kisser, just as predicted, and judging from the convoluted bullshit coming from his town-hall meet-ups, he ain't gonna change.
So far he's voted against the Agriculture Bill because it provided too much food for poor people, including BTW lots of folks who now can't afford food because the Bushies sent their jobs overseas. He's voted against the Veterans Bill that would have provided better education funding for veterans, because too many soldiers might prefer getting an education to being cannon fodder - but he does tout the funding for a Veterans Hospital in New Orleans as if he brought home the bacon. [Actually since he didn't serve, he should follow McCain's admonition and just shut the fuck up on veterans issues.] He voted against the Foreclosure Prevention Act because we can't have interference with predators gobbling up folks homes. Screw homeowners, we gotta protect those banks. And he voted against the suspension of purchases for the Strategic Oil Reserves. Keep buying oil at top prices and keeping if off the market so the prices will stay high. Then he bitches about not having a national energy policy - so we need more drilling in the Alaska National Wildlife Reserve, the Everglades, and coastal waters.
Maybe he's just not been in Washington long enough to know that the Presnit does have an energy, it's called getting the fuck off oil. Check out Click here: Daily Kingfish ... A Progressive Political Blog For Louisiana ... Ryan sez it all and gives references.
But that's OK, since more drilling won't have any adverse effect on the environment. According to numbnuts Scalise, since Louisiana hasn't been screwed up and polluted by oil drilling, we need to do all we can to fuck up Alaska and the Everglades and the California Coast . . . Of course, anything supporting more oil drilling will continue to sell in LA01 - new Regional home of the mighty Chevron . . .
Perhaps Steve needs to consider taking the first step . . . . . . .
Just take a deep breath and let it out . . . . .
