Last night, Congress proved themselves incapable of taking care of the nation’s business in an adult manner.

I’m battling bronchitis, so probably shouldn’t have come on the air at all today, but I couldn’t let those votes go by without talking about the travesty. Vote out all the bums.
If you’d like to see who the bad guys are you can start with Sen Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, and to a very slightly lesser degree, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and John Tester of Montana (who also happens to chair the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee).
The four roll call votes are here: the Grassley Amendment, the Murphy Amendment, the Cornyn Amendment, and the Feinstein Amendment. Read ’em and get mad, and get on the phones, and start holding those people accountable.
GottaLaff joined in for our regular Tuesday time together… and I struggled to get through the show.
So, I’m taking the rest of the week off to get healthy again, and plan on being back on Monday, June 27 – moving to our new show time of 2-4pm Eastern. Watch this space for details.
Now go call your senators and give them hell!
