    Boehner: Congress 'Ought To Be Judged On How Many Laws We Repeal'

    When are his constituents gonna repeal him? This is the most consistent, inconsistent member of Congress in forever! I am truly surprised he has stayed in congress this long.

    Boehner: Congress 'Ought To Be Judged On How Many Laws We Repeal'

    07/21/13 08:37 AM ET EDT AP

    WASHINGTON -- House Speaker John Boehner says Congress "ought to be judged on how many laws we repeal."

    The Ohio Republican makes the comments on an interview aired Sunday on CBS "Face the Nation." He was responding to a question about how little Congress is doing these days.

    Boehner says Congress "should not be judged by how many new laws we create."

    Congress has the power to make laws in certain delegated areas, and to make new laws repealing the old ones. That does not mean the should make all the laws they dream up.

    Americans Really Hate Congress
    We’ve known for years that most Americans have grown tired of their representatives in Washington, D.C., but a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows their disaffection hitting new highs.

    They're the most hated and despised congress in history. The republican-controlled congress has done nothing.

    Their approval rating has dropped to a new low and their disapproval rating to a new high.

    Why is Boehner still the Weeper of the House? He's failed miserably.

    The Republicans do not control Congress. The Senate and Presidential veto are Democrat,if you had not noticed.

    Re: Boehner: Congress 'Ought To Be Judged On How Many Laws We Repeal'

    I've always had this idea that we should pass a constitutional amendment that EVERY law should have an automatic sunset provision that would require congress to renew it every so many years as a means to weed out bad laws.

    Yeah, this is a real good idea, NOT. You realize that a republican held house would have allowed Social Security to Expire. They would have allowed Medicare to expire. They would have allowed the Student Loan program to expire. Not to mention welfare, food stamps, interstate highway system, all corporate tax laws, And they would probably even be looking at ways to repeal elections. Nah, I don't think it is a good idea.

    Do you think that a Congress that let those things simply expire would have remained in power long? The concept itself came out of a sci-fi novel I had read years ago, the concept is that laws should be difficult to pass and easy to repeal, if a law is truly good and serves the people, it will be sustained; if not it is best gotten rid of quickly.

    If he wants to repeal any laws, he should start with the rest of DOMA.

    Let him be judged on that.
    Americans need to keep their guns so they can protect themselves from gun violence just like Nancy Lanza did. And like Chris Kyle did. And like Gabby Giffords did. And like Tom Clements did. And like Michael Piemonte.

    George W Bush's "No Child Left Behind" act was one of the worst pieces of legislation regarding education. Also get rid of the Patriot Act. Those are a couple he scan start with.

    Speaking of the Patriot Act, an attempt to place hard limits on the NSA surveillance programs was narrowly defeated today but instead of being along party lines like most legislative efforts have been lately, it turned out to be a division between a pair of odd coalitions; the pro-defense conservatives and pro-Obama liberals (you could say the big government wings of the parties) fighting to prevent passage. The libertarian right and liberals opposed to Obama's continued support of the Bush era intelligence programs supporting passage. Rather interesting to see and disappointing that the civil liberty alliance failed.

    Granted, many of the greater political concepts like total democracy and total socialism, sound really good on paper but prove very problematic in execution.

    Do you see how difficult it is now to get any law passed (or repealed for that matter)? All they would have to do is let certain laws expire and then just act as roadblocks to them ever getting passed again. That's the one thing Republicans ARE good at. And in that time, when a law such as not being able to kill someone on federal land sits in limbo, we're stuck with a situation in which we've made things like murder legal.

    And perhaps the people would finally see how messed up the parties involved are we would get some serious leadership put in place.

    Letting people be killed to make a political point is a great idea. Except in America, unless they're the one being killed, people wouldn't care. No third or fourth or fifth party is ever going to get elected because they're just a different brand of extreme. Besides, unless you're advocating going to a dictatorship, this is the best you're going to get. The current government is exactly what the electorate has chosen to put in there. It's the people's choice and they've made their decision. There are too many varying and extreme opinions out there anymore to get any kind of consensus government. We're going to continue down this path of getting nothing done because no one wants to give up anything that affects them and wants everyone else to make the sacrifices. When everyone is looking out for number one, which they always do, you're never going to get anything done that benefits the whole.

    Killing on Federal land is illegal, but it is a State law murder, not a Federal one. Murder, like most crimes, is among the areas of legislation not delegated to the Federal government, but reserved to the states. A problem with making such things a violation of both Federal and State law is the individuals can sometimes be tried twice for the same act. Some people want the Feds to retry Zimmerman, by calling the same act a civil fights violation.

    Yes, the Leave it to Beaver days where the wife remained home in the kitchen wearing her pearls, earrings and high heels in a freshly laundered apron.

    There's quite a few that want to take us back to 1910. Before women got the vote, homosexuals were unspeakable and minorities knew their place.

    I believe that there are a lot of people who would vote for a sensible third party candidate if:
    1. There was a sensible third party candidate running in the campaign.
    2. The media was not pushing a two party agenda by limiting debate only to the Republicans and Democrats.
    3. This country was not indoctrinated in this fallacy of a two party system.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_(United_States_law)
    Murder is dually sovereign. It can be prosecuted under federal or state law. And there is nothing in the Constitution limiting the power of Congress to legislate laws against murder because doing so is in he interest of establishing justice, ensuring domestic tranquility, providing for the common defense, and promoting the general welfare of the US. And your example of being tried twice is flawed. If the federal government brings up charges against Zimmerman, it won't be for second degree murder. It will be for civil rights violations which, while related to the crime for which he was tried, is a different charge. Additionally, the Supreme Court has ruled in United States v. Lanza that dual sovereignty laws don't fall under the Fifth Amendment protections against double jeopardy, so the problem doesn't even exist. Further, while the ability exists, it is limited internally by the Justice Department under the Petite Policy. Finally, the idea of dual sovereignty serves partly to prevent surreptitiously skirting federal laws by states. For instance, if a state decided it wanted to legalize drugs and it would allow any federal agent attempting to enforce federal drug laws to be killed in "self-defense", the dual sovereignty of murder would allow for the federal government to still prosecute the killing if the state declined to.

    I would agree, but we have yet to see a really sensible third party candidate. The problem with the third party candidates we've seen are that they really aren't a third party in terms of ideas - they're just one of the two major parties with a slightly tweaked (and generally more radical) agenda.

    Which is why I said "a sensible third party candidate". I think if a third party put forth a viable third party candidate, there would be a rush from the other two parties to support this candidate.

    The reason there cannot be a third party for long is inherent in the direct election of the President. A third candidate inevitably draws votes away from the other one most nearest the third in policies. Nader drew liberal votes away from Gore, not Bush. Most of those voters would have preferred Gore over Bush. Perot voters would have preferred Bush to Clinton. So the third party elects the candidate least liked by the switch voters.
    If a third party were very successful it would simply destroy one of the parties, leaving us with a two party system. The Whigs disappeared after the Republican success.
    All this is inherent in the system and is unavoidable without some big change in the election mechanism.

    We need sweeping changes in our electoral system. We need to eliminate the electoral college for on thing, it had it's time, but in this day and age of electronic communications it has outlived its purpose.

    Any movement to remove the Electoral College is doomed to failure, without question. The Senate will NEVER produce the two-thirds majority required for passage (not would the House, ruled by Republicans who fully realize the Electoral College slightly favors Republicans). Even then, forget 3/4 of the states ratifying it.

    This is unfortunate, too. It is such a flawed system that no U. S. state has a similar mechanism for electing its Governor.

    Main objective of the Republicons (other than to fuck Pres. Obama) is to nullify the New Deal.

    So Congress has yet to repeal one law.

    And John Boehner thinks that the Republican Congress should be judged on that.

    Okaaaaaaaaaaayyyyy.
