What are the requirements to run for Congress?
 
Apparently not speech class. However, very entertaining right up to the point where he stopped taking any accountability for the problems in America blaming the other party instead.

Let's see, you have to act like a viable leader during the election,

but from what I've seen of C-span, the only time you actually have to

represent anybody, by being present in DC, is during the POTUS's

SOTU address. You need to have blame-shifting tuned to a fine art,

and public displays of poor statesmanship are now a rising trend...

They should require an IQ test, and a test on how well they know the Constitution.

You must offer free things to more than 50% of the voters in your district. :eek:

If pro is the opposite of con, what is the opposite of progress?

Time to stock up on helium!

Not sure how those clowns in Congress will function with helium sequestered only to national security and scientific needs.

Federal Helium Sales Suspension Vote - Vote Passed
(394-1, 37 Not Voting)
http://images.capwiz.com/img/spacer.gif
In its final action of the week, the House passed a bill creating a framework for winding down operation of the Federal Helium Reserve. Under current law, the Reserve is mandated to cease commercial helium sales once it pays off its debt, which is expected to occur by October 2013. According to the House Natural Resources committee, the scheduled closure would cut domestic helium supplies in half. H.R. 527 would keep the reserve open with new operating instructions until its capacity is 3 billion cubic feet (down from 10 billion cubic feet at present), at which time commercial sales will no longer be authorized and remaining supplies will only be available for national security and scientific needs. Neither the administration nor senate leaders have staked out positions on the measure.
