Once again the Senate and House Republicans have proved that they lack a spine or any kind of self-respect. After Texas Congressman Joe L. Barton firmly and accurately described the $20 Billion dollar fund that V.P. Joe Biden was instrumental in forcing on BP as a "shakedown" all the lily livered Republicans threatened Rep. Barton's committee assignments as punishment if he didn't apologize. For what? Telling the truth!?
John Boehner - I used to respect you. Not any more. And any other Republican congressman who forced this apology on Rep. Barton - a pox on all your houses as well!
Bunch of cowards is what you are and you all should be defeated and replaced by Congress critters with some stones! What is WRONG with you people?
Shame on all y'all!
