This is the kind of information we need coming from our legislators, not to mention their
action to get these treasonous practices stopped. There is so much going on, in secret in the Halls of Congress, and we have few ways to learn about them. In this video, Senator Jim DeMint tells us that 94% of all bills are passed with “unanimous consent,” meaning no one reads, no one debates, no reading of the bill from the floor, no amendments, no votes and no CBO score. The video below is important. I hope you have time to listen to what the Senate is doing to the American people.
The best quote of the past few years comes from Senator Jim DeMint:
“You don’t get $13b in debt when you are doing things right”
DeMint discusses “hot lines” into the senators offices, late at night, requesting a “unanimous consent.” He says if he refuses, the news is that “Senator DeMint is holding up an important bill – that no one has read. The hot line works overtime when the senate is on break :
“When we take a break I will get a call from staff there were dozens of requests for passing bills by unanimous consent because they knew we were going out of town.”
I have a problem with people secretely asking that bills be passed in secret, and 94% of bills get passed that way.
In the video below, at 5:55 mins-in, DeMint yields to Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) Listen to what Wyden says, which sounds reasonable, but then…then Senator DeMint responds and, he responds in exactly the way I want my president and my senators to respond. At 7:55 in hear DeMint respond back and pull no punches.
The more I hear DeMint in his own words, the more excited I am about being able to vote for him for president.
Now we have to wonder if the same thing happens in the House.
Feel free to grab it and make it go viral!
