Congresscritter Candice Miller sent the following example of self-adulation coupled to sanctimony to all of us unfortunate enough to have her as our representative in Congress (note the obligatory insertion of the TEA-Traitors’ new mantra, “fairness”):
Rep. Miller: Measure Fails to Provide Fairness for Americans Under ObamaCare, Deal with Long Term Debt
Oct 16, 2013
WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Candice Miller (MI-10) today made the following statement on the passage of a bill that fails to provide fairness for all Americans under ObamaCare law, and deal with our nation’s long term debt:
“While I am pleased that the government will now reopen and our nation will avoid defaulting on its obligations, I could not support a solution that did not provide fairness for the American people under ObamaCare, and that also failed to take real action to deal with our nation’s long term debt and deficit.
“In the coming months there will be opportunities to address those challenges in a conference on the budget by December 13th, in January when government funding must once again be passed, and in February when we again debate the debt ceiling. It is my hope that in the meantime the Administration and the Senate begin to negotiate in good faith on our nation’s fiscal challenges and recognize the damage being done to our economy and the American people by ObamaCare.”
In other words... she voted, "No." And she will win my district again in 2014, make no mistake. It is no accident that she occupies the seat now. The majority of her constituency is the same mix of semi-educated, bigoted, sanctimonious TEA-Twit hangers-on as that of most of her TEA-Traitor cohorts. This is to say that a significant majority of my neighbors and other denizens of this district will believe she did a good job, that the entire shutdown thing was a great idea when it was the TEA-Traitors’ idea, but an attempt to destroy America as soon as the TEA-Traitors told them, “Hey, forget that we said we did this... Obama did it and it sucks ‘cause it’s making us look bad. Tell all your friends it was Obama.”
And, just like the TEA-Twits here on Gather, they’re doing exactly that. They’re happily telling each other, and anyone else who will listen that, “The shutdown was all Obama and it was about “fairness” in ObamaCare anyway when the TEA-Traitors forced the Obama shutdown, which it always was, but if he had only agreed to cut Social Security and Medicare the TEA-Traitors never would have done this, which they didn’t really, but they wouldn’t have anyway, because it wasn’t really about ObamaCare, it was about fairness and spending reduction... and what do you mean the deficit is falling like a stone? That’s just not true.”
It doesn't have to be accurate... Hell, it doesn't even have to be coherent. It just has to blame Obama for something, and include the word "fairness" in some approving manner, and they'll buy it. It’s the “That’s just not true,” part that will get her reelected, because they’ll believe that.
And I'm pretty sure enough of her TEA-Traitor cohorts and other Republicans will also win to keep them in control of the house for one more election cycle.
