Why Won’t They Sign? (Update)

UPDATE–104 Republicans, still NO Democrats have signed the Pledge!!!

UPDATE–3 more Republicans signed the pledge. 104 Republicans, NO Democrats. Why?????

UPDATE–3 more Republicans signed the pledge. 101 Republicans, NO Democrats. Why?????

It’s a sad thing that our elected representatives would refuse to read sweeping legislation that would impact every American before voting on it, but that’s the attitude among Democrats in Washington these days. Here’s Representative John Conyers (D-MI) telling the National Press Club there’s no point to reading the bills he votes on because he can’t understand what he reads anyway!

I guess that’s why NO Democrats have signed Let Freedom Ring’s Responsible Health Care Reform Pledge.  Of the 535 members of Congress, only 98–all Republicans–have signed the pledge promising to read the bill before voting for it and guaranteeing the American people access to inspect the bill for a minimum of 72 hours prior to any such vote.

Why won’t the Democrats sign?  Perhaps Conyers speaks for the entire majority in the US House.  Why read it if they’re incapable of understanding it?

And the data shows “slick” Berry is may seem more dim witted with age but he has been more than smart enough to fleece the public for years.

  • Blue Dog Berry – Not so Blue With Farm SubsidyKen Cook at Mulch reports: Blue Dogs Are Big Winners In Subsidy-Laden Farm Bill . . .
  • Arkansas Rep. Marion Berry (D) Cashing In on Federal Service . . . receives farm subsidies . . . – Consider if you will, between 1996 and 2000, farm and land-holding companies that Berry owns with relatives in eastern Arkansas have received $750,449 in federal crop subsidies, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture records. . .
  • The Other King of Pork — AR Representative Marion Berry – Congressman Marion Berry (D-AR) promises more pork barrel spending now that the Democrats are in charge of Congress. This is no surprise. Last year, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette wrote, “Arkansas’ Rep. Marion Berry would like to be known as the king of pork. “Nothing would please me more,” he says. . . .

    After two more health care town hall meetings yesterday in North Carolina and Virginia, the President’s poll numbers continue to crash. He’s doing more good for the conservative cause than anything else!

    Keep talking Mr. President!
