Congressional Jerkoffs at Work

A bill championed by U.S. Rep. Todd Young requiring any rule or regulation resulting in an economic impact of $100 million or more to receive a vote by Congress has again passed the House.

But the REINS Act, which stands for Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny, has been threatened for veto by President Barack Obama, and still would have to be approved by the Senate. The legislation has been introduced before, including a stalled attempt to pass the REINS Act through the Senate in 2013 after it was OK'd in the House.
No president, D, R or otherwise, would ever agree to this. Any politician that's made it as far as an election to the Zoning Board knows that you never ever agree to give up power. This'll be vetoed faster than a bill to have a national holiday in honor of sex offenders.

Todd Young, and the other 200+ jerkoffs who voted for this bill, know that. This bill is nothing more than grandstanding, or, if you will, political onanism.

But that seems to be the only thing congress does, on either side. Both the R and D sides throw up bills that they know have a snowballs chance in passing. Then they can turn to their die hard supporters and say "see, we tried to get that bill passed. Give us more money, and next time for sure!"

The silver lining is that if this passed they'd have to vote individually on every ship built and every DOD acquisition funding measure. And just think, the way the F-35 is going they'd have to vote on those individually too.
