image Congressman Tom Price, MD (R-GA) who is the Chairman of the of the Republican Study Committee (which is the caucus of House Conservatives) offered up a resolution that would kill the lame duck session after November.  A presser released from his office today said:

Republican Study Committee Chairman Tom Price (R-GA) issued the following statement after offering a resolution on the floor of the House of Representatives calling on Congress not to hold a lame duck session after Election Day for the purpose of passing hugely unpopular legislation like a national energy tax, enormous deficit spending bills, and the kickback to Big Labor known as “Card Check.”

“Americans are sick and tired of their elected leaders making backroom deals to ram through unpopular, 2000-page bills that no one has read,” said Chairman Price.  “They are sick of out-of-touch politicians, and they are tired of being ignored.  A number of Democrats, including members of their leadership, have recently expressed a desire to ignore the public will and use a lame duck session to pass liberal legislation Americans do not want.  Today I gave my Democrat colleagues an opportunity to show they are finally ready to listen to the American people.

“Our system of government rests upon the consent of the governed, but it is quite clear that Democrats no longer have Americans’ consent.  The public’s trust in this Congress has been repeatedly broken.  Voting for a national energy tax and other items on the liberal wish list in a lame duck session would shatter it beyond repair.  Republicans are fully prepared to do what is necessary to restore Americans’ trust in their elected representatives.  We know it will be a long road, but it is one well worth traveling.”

Hear!  Hear!  Unfortunately House Democrats delayed the vote on it.  Darn, I appreciate the attempt though.  The less this Congress meets the BETTER.  You can read the resolution here.
