Will the New Republican Majority FAIL to abolish federal agencies? Did the Little Piggie cry "wee wee wee" all the way home?
2010 Mike Church
Hi folks its Mike Church with todays Church Doctrine.
So for the first time in 232 years of Congresses the Constitution will be read aloud on the floor of the House. Many are celebrating this as something long overdue. That Congress needs to take their oath seriously and that representatives need to consult the fabled document and cite where it gives authority to new bills they want to pass. This sounds all fine and dandy but I have a question: Will the New Deck Chair Party begin the process of red-lining out agencies and funding that is blatantly unconstitutional already?
Heree a few examples: the National Endowment for the Arts and the Humanities. The Agriculture department and all its attendant subsidies, price supports and trade tariffs. There is an oil crisis on the horizon and what will Republicans in the House do to either forestall or deal with it when it starts? Will they abolish the Department of Energy and not fund the agency that enforces Obama and Pelosis drilling moratoriums?
?Will the new Congress have the courage to eliminate funding for the Education Department and refuse to fund the massive expansion of Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac under Obama & Pelosi? Alas and unfortunately for us, that answer isnt a solid enough yes as the prospect of little piggies crying wee wee wee all the way home is.
