“Spend Less” Paulsen Wastes Taxpayer Money, Part 1

by TwoPuttTommy on July 12, 2012 · 1 comment

Yesterday, career politician Erik Paulsen’s Party (and remember, Paulsen was the only GOPer Freshman to be selected to a Party Leadership Position in 2009) voted for the 33rd time to repeal the Affordable (health)Care Act.  CBS News has a story about Paulsen’s Party’s exercise in futility, and how much taxpayer money was wasted.  Let’s look!

So, Paulsen is a party to wasting two week’s of Congress’ time by holding 33 votes in an excercise of futility that cost taxpayers around $50 MILLION dollars?

No surprise there!

Stay tuned….

From the House Republicans themselves. They think they’re bragging, but Democrats were handed a talking point:

“‘To date, 32 Floor votes have been taken to repeal, defund, or dismantle ObamaCare. Tomorrow’s vote to repeal ObamaCare will be the 33rd,’ read an advisory from the office of Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).”
