A Very Brave Congressman
Sean was joined by a very brave Democratic Congressman from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, Congressman Jason Altmire. “Are you going to poll your constituents,” asked Sean, “and 64% of your constituents believe that abortion funding has no place in health care.” Altmire quickly replied,” I am pro-life and I’d prefer stronger language.” Sean took the opportunity to push Congressman Altmire further arguing, “what do you think of the latest notion that you won’t even have to vote on the legislation.” Altmire fought back saying, “ I strongly oppose that procedure and let me say, this is the biggest social policy Congress has considered in the last forty five years and it’s critical that every Representative be held accountable for their actions.” Though the Congressman skirted the issue of how he’ll vote in any upcoming vote, Mr. Altmire showed more bravery than his Democr atic leadership in just appearing on the show.
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann: Slaughter The Slaughter Solution
This past weekend, America’s 2nd most hated GOP woman, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, held a rally against Obama Care and the “Slaughter Solution.” The Slaughter Solution, named after its author New York Congresswoman Louise Slaughter, is designed to allow the House to “deem the Senate bill passed” without having the members vote on the bill. In other words, they won’t be held accountable for their vote. “The biggest danger here is that laws don’t matter,” a very angry Sean stated, “the biggest danger is that they pick and choose when the Constitution is relevant and when it’s not.” Congresswoman Bachmann replied, “If they do that Sean, then our society won’t be able to hold together very long, because they’re saying the words on the Constitution don’t mean anything.” TO read more about Congresswoman Slaughter’s last rally, visit The Minnesota Start Tribune.

Last week, President Joe Biden publicly scolded Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for announcing a 1,600 unit housing project that would be built on land that Palestinians lay claim to. “I look at it this way, “Sean stated, “Israel has continually acted against their best interest and Israel needs to see the reality that exists under Obama.” Bolton agreed arguing, “This is a graphic demonstration of why I call Obama the first ‘Post-American’ president and Israel might be the first important ally to feel the pain of this posture.
