KC Star editorial: "Stop pontificating....." [View all]

This is gonna leave a mark! . . .

"The next time U.S. Rep. Kevin Yoder gets that sincere look on his face and starts extolling his love of fiscal responsibility, compassion for small businesses and the need for certainty in the financial world, just remember this:

When it came time Wednesday to do the responsible, pragmatic thing ó to end a government shutdown that had slashed services to millions of Americans while sapping private businesses of untold amounts of money ó Yoder followed the tea party line.

He was one of 144 House Republicans to vote for a continued spiral toward default and even more dysfunction in the nationís capital. Others in the local delegation who voted to add to the losses were Sam Graves and Vicky Hartzler of Missouri. Yoder explained his vote Thursday by saying he wanted to 'rein in the ever-increasing spending in Washington, D.C.'

Great idea, congressman. But the way to accomplish that feat isnít through shuttering government and promoting the near financial collapse of the free world to pursue the end-game of defunding the Affordable Care Act."


------------------------------------------------
Pity they only mentioned Graves and Hartzler in passing--they're two of the more useless tools in Congress. But we will remember next November, and remind Missourians of the needless pain they inflicted on America, and the havoc they nearly caused the world.
