Alexandria, VA, April 8, 2011 – This afternoon, the U.S. House passed its resolution of disapproval of the FCC’s rogue Net Neutrality regulations. Curiously, two ardent supporters of those regulations couldn’t take the time to vote on the measure – past Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, and Representative Jared Polis, who led debate this week of the rule leading to today’s vote.
We know where at least one of them was during the vote. Speaker Pelosi was at a fete in Boston, sponsored by the radical, Soros-backed group, Free Press.
As for Polis – apparently he’s just AWOL.
Instead of doing their jobs, and placing the tough vote, they chose not to. Maybe Rep. Polis has an excuse. But, for the Speaker, her absence is particularly unsettling and, quite frankly, disrespectful of Congress and her constituents. In any other job, she would be fired. Thankfully for her, she works in Congress, immune to its own laws, and out of touch with America.
Shame on you, Nancy (Jared – we await to see your official hall pass). Free Press parties are not an excuse to play hooky.
