In case you still thought Republicans in Congress were interested in getting anything done that might help the American people, Republican Michael Burgess of Lewisville put that to rest earlier this week.
Burgess attended a meeting of the Northeast Tarrant County Tea Party, and spent most of the meeting defending his Yea vote on the debt-ceiling deal. Thankfully for Burgess, someone distracted the crowd with a question about whether or not Republicans should pursue impeachment, for the sole purpose of tying up government and preventing President Obama from getting anything done.
Because the Republican Congress hasn't been sufficiently spectacularly effective at that as of yet.
Per the Star-Telegram:
When one attendee suggested that the House push for impeachment proceedings against Obama to distract the president and keep him from getting things done, Burgess was immediately receptive.
“It needs to happen, and I agree with you it would tie things up,” Burgess said. “No question about that.”
Pretty clear: the Republican Party's priority for America is procedural delay, to prevent President Obama from doing anything that might actually help working or unemployed Americans. They don't really care about helping the people of our country, they just care about destroying the economy and hurting our nation to the point where they can recapture the Presidency. But hey, at least they basically admit that to their fringe Tea Party faithful!
