Freshman GOP Congressman says GOP "waste time on this stuff"



Justin Amash
Truth-sayer
Remarks from  a freshman GOP Congressman....
"Those of us who are pro-life should demand more from Congress," he wrote. "While we waste time on stuff like this, genuine legislation to protect life is ignored." 

Asked on his Facebook page why House leadership decided to suspend the rules for the PRENDA vote, Amash replied that "Republicans want it to fail." The bill did fail by a vote of 246 to 168.
As reported by Huff Post..
".....the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA), which would have made it a federal offense for a doctor to perform an abortion that was motivated by the gender of the fetus. The House voted on the bill under suspension of its rules, which is a procedure normally reserved for noncontroversial legislation because it requires a two-thirds majority to pass a bill."
The backstory....


Huffington Post POLITICS reported on Facebook remark on the page of Republican Congressman,  Justin Amash (R-Mich.), a freshman known in Congress as "Mr. Facebook."  Amash's comments were focused on fellow members of the GOP House who he alleges legislative politics during a time when meaningful legislation could constitute time better spent. 


Comments reported by Huff Post.
"...accusing them of using a bill that would ban sex-selection abortions to take a cheap political shot at the president." 
Comment from The Progressive Influence....


Amash will certainly catch the wrath of those in his party who practice obstructionism and 'silly' politics under the cover of '....make Obama a one term president".  The GOP, to the member of Congress would never admit to "a cheap political shot at the president" (silliness).  


An, just think, the GOP campaigned on "Jobs, Jobs, Jobs".
