"The stuff", being empty discourse and meaningless indignation at the IRS targeting the tea party. From behind the door, the five term congressman and chair of the Ways and Means committee is trying to get in. He should know the door remains closed, and any voter with a remaining functional synapse will be ignoring the pounding for attention. Camp's office responded to an Examiner article that described continuing IRS abuse of power with
"Congress may be out of session but we're continuing to keep the heat on the Internal Revenue Service. I wanted to make sure you saw the Washington Examiner article below for the most recent update. It is outrageous that IRS management continues to target Tea Party cases without any justification. "
Ahem. .. IT'S OUTRAGEOUS!
Yeah get the ol tea folk worked up so you can abandon them again. Go to another dozen 912, Tea, patriot type meetings and tell them some more stories of how you will solve the current set of problems, and if necessary DEFUND the departments causing them:
" You didn't challenge the health care bill's constitutionality in 2010 when it was being debated did you Dave Camp? How about you Fred Upton? No. I guess not. And even after PLEDGING to affirm constitutionality for each bill passed in the house, it only took 7 months to lose that pledge in the bottom of the briefcase.
But Dave, did you remember coming to our group meeting in Traverse City? Remember how you said if some of the mechanisms which were happening did not remove Obama care, then you would try the "de-funding option?" C'mon man! THINK, Damn it!
I was the one who asked if you would do it, and you said that was the alternative that was on the table.
.. you had your chance and you blew it."
Not forgetting those promises Dave. Going below the fold for more.
And now he is "Outraged" at the abuses by the IRS.
The million dollar question is: What is Dave planning to do about it?
Will he continue to fund, and thereby be complicit in their actions?
Will he subpoena the President, who is certainly in the chain of command?
Would he vote to impeach the president, for this abuse of power on the American people? What about for the following reasons:
Obama appears to have gotten onto the Indiana ballot through voter fraud in 2008.
Obama is using a SSN which comes from a state in which he never worked or resided.
Obama claimed foreign student status, (as Indonesian) and that his student aid was falsely obtained.
Obama violated the Constitution by firing the GM CEO unilaterally.
Obama's EPA is overeaching and has bypassed Congress by setting crippling carbon emission standards.
Obama forced BP to pony up a $20 billion slush fund administered by one of Obama's political appointees with NO Congressional oversight.
Obama did nothing to Holder (abetting a felony) when Holder refused to prosecute two New Black Panther Party members for brandishing weapons in front of a voting location in Philadelphia. A direct violation of the voters Civil Rights act.
Obama bypassed the Senate with a recess appointment of Donald Berwick as the head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Violates policy.
Obama bypassed the Senate with appointments of several "czars."
Obama violated contractual law when his regime cancelled 77 oil field development contracts previously approved by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, preventing the extraction of possibly 2-3 TRILLION barrels of oil.
Obama instigated a revolution in Egypt against an ally in the War on Terror.
This small bullet point list is from about 50 legitimate reasons. The complete list is available with most items directly verifiable, by using popular search engines. Such research does not require any more than a couple of hours by such smart folks as those who reside in congress. Congressmen like Dave Camp feel the need to straddle the fence, because that has worked so well for their careers for so long. To step off and actually stand for something is actually that thing that might be considered "outrageous".
No, as Dave is not likely to do anything brave, statesman like, or in a manner that defends the constitution, I expect nothing.
