Voting on the goofy stuff

9 May

gop-vote-on-obamacare-again-sizedA busy week in the House next week as lawmakers do the people’s business.

The Working Families Flexibility Act of 2013, supposedly gives workers flexibility in trading overtime for comp time.

It allows workers in the private sector to receive comp time instead of the standard time-and-a-half pay for overtime hours.

We should also tell you a 1985 revision of the Fair Labor Standards Act allows government workers to do so.

Now they can’t collect overtime until they have 80 hours of comp time first.

Not much flexibility there.

Then there’s this gem.

It may be among the most voted-on measures in Congress. Ever.

The House will vote again next week to repeal the 2010 health-care reform law, or ObamaCare.

Depending on how you count, it’ll be somewhere between the 33rd and 37th time the House has tried to repeal a part, or all, of the law since it was passed.

Anyone remember one of the great definitions of insanity?

Doing the same thing over and over expecting a different outcome.

We rest our case.
