Republicans in the House

Lately news has been somewhat slow, as the new congress has just come into power. The Republicans held a reading of the Constitution on the House floor. Basically it was meant to be a shout out to the Tea Party for supporting them in the last election. It's also the first time that the U.S. Constitution has ever been read on the House Floor.

Let me start by stating that I think it was a nice gesture, but to be completely honest, I don't care that this was done. I'd rather have them not read from the Constitution and hold to it, as their constituents want them to. I'll hold off whether or not I'm glad that they're now in power until I see what they do with their power. I hope that at the very least, we have some kind of barrier against the out of control spending we've been experiencing for the past two years.

So while reading from the Constitution is a nice gesture, I'll leave you with this sound bit of reason: "Mind what people do, not only what they say, for deeds will betray a lie."

Yes, but after getting nothing but single-finger gestures from Obama for the last couple years, this is a nice change of pace.

Plus, think of the 2 billion dollars they didn't spend because they were busy reading instead of passing idiot legislation.
