142 Congressional Democrats Tell Eric Holder – STOP LYING TO US

In a vote hardly mentioned by the mainstream media, 142 House Democrats favored an amendment that in essence demands  Obama Attorney General Eric Holder stop lying to Congress – as well as preventing the Obama Department of Justice from suing over voter I.D. laws.

From The Hill:

House to Eric Holder: Stop lying to us

The House Wednesday evening voted overwhelmingly to prevent the Justice Department from using taxpayer funds to lie to Congress.

The vote came in a Wednesday evening series of amendments to a bill, H.R. 5326, funding the Justice Department for 2013. Members approved the language in a 381-41 vote; all 41 “no” votes came from Democrats, although 142 Democrats voted with Republicans in support of the amendment.

The vote reflects the ongoing frustration Republicans — and apparently some Democrats — have with Attorney General Eric Holder.

…The House also approved other controversial funding limitation amendments, including one to prevent Justice from defending the 2010 healthcare law, and to prevent Justice from suing states over over voter ID laws.

    • I’ll be totally amazed if that gets through the Senate. Reid will stonewall the thing to hell and back, and even if they approve it, Obozo will veto it. The House has enough votes to override a veto, but does the Senate?

    • Gee – does this mean House members have finally begun to understand what power the constitution gives them over the federal budget? When I suggested to my “tea party” Republican Congressman a while back that the way to get Holder, Sebelius, or any other head of agency to pay attention to Congress was to zero out funding for their individual offices and staffs, he gave me that old “deer in the headlights” stare.

    • About 200 million Americans are also telling Holder to stop lying, too. We will be handing him a pink slip come Novermber, and prison-orange soon after.

    • House Speaker John Boehner, whose support for Chairman Issa’s investigation into Operation Fast and Furious has been questioned in the past months, has offically come out in support of getting to the bottom of the scandal saying “all options are on the table,” to hold the Obama Justice Department accountable.
