It doesn’t end there either; among other provisions are a rollback in trucking safety regulations that will permit drivers to work 82 hours a week and exempts agricultural refuse from clean-water standards. Yep, you read that right; Congress is voting to both allow big corporate farms to poison the water and big trucking companies to run you over with drivers that are asleep at the wheel.
Pelosuckonitpeon, for her part, has refused to urge her caucus to vote against the bill en-masse.
Were she to do so she could kill the bill quite effectively.
But she won’t. Instead, she will line up with Boehner and take her turn at abusing you under the rubric of “keeping the government open.” And Obama, for his part, has said he’ll sign it — so he’ll line up with Congress in both poisoning you and then running you over.
This is what you sit for America.
