Think about this, North Carolina

Our two US Senators voted for a tax bill that neither had read. Nor had either of their staffs. The bill was written by lobbyists for Mitch McConnell, who also has not read the bill. And to think that we, the citizens of North Carolina, are paying these clowns to represent us. They should be sued for failing to uphold their oaths of office.


I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

How in God's name can a person support and defend the Constitution of the United States when voting for legislation they haven't even read? Does "not reading legislation" quality as well and faithfully discharging the duties of the office? These jerks should be fired.

Sue them

I'm willing to help fund a legal challenge against Burr and Tillis for failure to comply with their oath of office. I'll be contacting the ACLU tomorrow.

Thom and Dick

must have known that the new tax bill gives a free ride to jet owners, too.

It's not just that our tax

It's not just that our tax dollars are paying them but that they also claim to have wonderful, conservative values, values that seem to exclude those in need. I don't know how some of these people can call themselves Christians.
