Rep. Thad McCotter has produced a video message promoting the American Solutions petition to drill for more American oil. The congressman notes that he has joined with Republicans, Democrats, and Independents to sign this petition.
This message is an abomination. Rep. McCotter has access to put a bill in the hopper. He shouldn’t be signing and promoting electioneering petitions. Instead his bill (H.RES.419) is for a National Dog Bite Prevention Week.
A competent congressman would be promoting a bill to remove legislative restrains on Americans’ freedom to engage in trade that he or she had sponsored, and championing a discharge petition.
I hope that Rep. McCotter fails to win re-election based upon incompetence. Such stupidity is why the Republicans lost control of Congress. This do-nothing is the chair of the House Republican Policy Committee.
