15 December 2008
on 09 december 2008, texas republican, louie gohmert, introduced his H.R. 7309. a bill "to amend the internal revenue code of 1986 to suspend employment and income taxes for the first two months of 2009, and for other purposes."
according to the library of congress, as of 1:09 p.m. cst, monday 15 december 2008, rep. gohmert's bill has thirty-seven co-sponsors:
surprisingly -- or not -- not one louisiana congressman has signed on to co-sponsor rep. gohmert's bill.
rep.'s mccrery, cazayoux and jefferson, perhaps can be excused since they are all on their way out of the congress.
however, there is no excuse for republican rep.'s rodney alexander and charles boustany (who both voted for the wall street bailout) for not co-sponsoring this bill. nor is there any excuse for democratic rep. charlie melancon's (another rat who voted for the wall street bailout) not co-sponsoring this bill either. the other republican -- rep. steve scalise, his name is also inexplicably absent.
call rodney alexander [contact], charles boustany [contact]. charlie melancon [contact]. and steve scalise [contact] and ask them to co-sponsor H.R. 7309 and to do everything within their power to pass this bill.
