Is Rick Bart Against Motherhood, Too?

Republican candidate Rick Bart has criticizing Democratic Congressman Rick Larsen (WA-02)... for endorsing Obama or for being in Congress or something?

Barts press-release takes a bizarre stance, saying; "The reality is that Americans no longer trust Congress. The best hope we have for a better future is to change Congress".

It's bizarre because he's making a great argument for sending more Democrats to Congress.

Congress has low rating because of Republicans.

The years of a Republican majority were years of harmful policies, corruption and failure to carry out the duty of oversight. The 2006 elections were a judgement against Republicans.

Now that Republicans are in the minority, they have made obstruction a full time endeavor. Their dedication to bringing Congressional business to a standstill is insidious. Last Wednesday, in an effort to slow legislative procedures, 178 House Republicans voted against Motherhood!

When Republicans choose to vote against H. Res. 1113, "Celebrating the role of mothers in the United States and supporting the goals and ideals of Mother's Day" as a way to gum up the works, we need to question their collective sanity as well as their morality and integrity.

When Republicans are against Motherhood, can voting against apple pie be far behind?

If Bart did make it to Congress, he'd change nothing, he'd just fall into line with the Republican leadership and obstruct the business of the People.

I don't understand why congress is busy making declarations to show support to moms when they have bigger problems to deal with. Besides, I've been a mom for a lot of years and I really don't need the government to recognize my efforts.
