Christmas and Christians are important, H.Res. 847….humm important enough to have a law??

Seriously, congress is wasting our time with this crap.  Isn’t there anything else they should be doing like criminal investigations on Bush and Cheney and the many illegal scandals that have plague this administration for years.  Hummm I guess not, we need to know that Christmas and Christians are important. 

“How lame and such a waste of our tax money. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), easily among the top five looniest members of the chamber, voted on H.Res. 847 on the floor. It will put the House on record stating that Christmas and Christians are important.

The House passed this bill today. The vote, surprisingly, was 372-9, with 10 members also voting “Present,” meaning they took no position on the legislation, and 40 not voting. One of the “Present” votes was cast by Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.). More Democrats -195 – voted for the bill than Republicans, 177.”

The nine members who voted against the bill – God bless them! – are Reps. Gary Ackerman (D-N.Y.), Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.), Diana DeGette (D-Colo.), Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.), Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), Jim McDermott (D-Wash.), Bobby Scott (D-Va.), Pete Stark (D-Calif.) and Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.).
