More Whiny Walsh

Jim Walsh is back in the Letter to the Editor section being whiny about someone daring to criticize him and the Republican Do-Nothing Congress.

So while Jim Walsh boasts about working so, so hard on things like flip flopping on social security, voting against stem cell research and wafflinf on social security, I challenge him to answer what exactly he, George Bush and the Republican Congress have done on the issues that matter to voters, like:
  • Gas prices
  • Health care
  • Immigration
  • The Budget
  • Tax reform

Any time you want to explain you and your Republican colleagues have done nothing, is fine with us. So while we're waiting (it'll be a long one) here, let's look at some editorials:

Clarion-Ledger (Jackson, Miss.), Pathetic: Congress earns 'do-nothing' label “On issues ranging from energy reform to reining in lobbyists to controlling immigration, Congress has failed to pass substantive legislation, despite one-party control.” [8/6/06]

USA Today, So much to do, so little time…so Congress skips town“As Congress settles into its month-long August break, it's hard to shake the feeling that the House and Senate haven't earned their time off. Instead of tending to basics and working out differences on divisive but vital issues such as immigration, members have spent much of the past several months in political posturing and time-wasting debates over non-essential issues… Republicans shoulder most of the blame for this do-little record, since they're in charge.” [8/7/06]

Herald-Leader (Lexington, KY), Less hot air in D.C. “It's been a grueling summer for Congress, slaving over such urgent matters as the Pledge of Allegiance, flag desecration and gay marriage. Now our elected representatives are looking forward to a month off to campaign and grab some R&R.” [8/4/06]
