GOPers walk off rather than face reality

It was a cowardly act seen on the House floor yesterday. Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.) presided over the brief session, and after the Pledge of Allegiance closed the session. Where's that UP or Down vote you GOPers are always calling for now, Mr. Fitzpatrick? Were you afraid that your majority wouldn't hold up if the Democrats actually got the payroll tax holiday extension to the floor?

So, like cowards you abandon your posts and even go so far as to have CSPAN cameras cut off so that We the People wouldn't be able to witness inaction and recognize it for the cowardice it is. The video rolled for about a minute after you and your merry band marched out... long enough to capture this...

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.)

Take care of your rich buddies for sure... but the middle class and working poor? Who needs them? Your attitudes have spawned an entire college of clowns to run for office. The pickings are so "rich" and hanging so low that any fool can successfully run for office... and plenty are.

All I can say is that this country voted them in... perhaps now the under-informed Teaparty supporters will smell the coffee, open their eyes and vote them back out. A class of highschoolers could be counted on to do a better job.
