After Next Week, House Stopping Work Until Election – by Billy House, September 14, 2012

Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., announced on Friday that, after next week, the House won’t be returning to session until after the Nov. 6 elections.

A planned one-week session in Washington at the start of October has been scrapped. That means when the House adjourns next Friday, the chamber will not be scheduled to cast any votes again until Nov. 13.

Speaking on the House floor, Cantor said that the decision for House members not to return to the Capitol in October has been made given the Senate’s anticipated passage next week of a bill to keep government running beyond the Oct. 1 start of the new fiscal year, a bill already passed on Thursday in the House.

The House still plans to hold its session next week as scheduled, starting next Wednesday evening, through Friday. One bill Republicans plan to bring to the floor next week would create a new green-card category for foreigners who have received doctorate degrees from U.S. universities in science, technology, engineering, and math (the so-called STEM disciplines).

Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., responded on the floor with some incredulity, saying that although there remains much legislation left to be completed, Cantor’s announcement means that lawmakers now have about two days of session work remaining. The two then argued about which party is to blame for stalled or no action on such issues as the farm bill, postal-service reform, the Violence Against Women Act, and renewing the George W. Bush-era tax cuts.

At one point, when Cantor included the farm bill in his comments about Democratic refusal to engage in “real reform” in some of those bills, Hoyer fired back that it is the House Republican leadership that has chosen not to bring a bipartisan bill to the floor.

On Thursday, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., had said she did not know for sure, but was worried that Republicans were planning not to return in October.

She told reporters, “I want you to know the Democrats stand ready to be here for as long as it takes to pass a jobs bill, to come to agreement on a budget bill, to avoid the sequester…” — the scheduled cuts to defense and domestic spending set for Jan. 2.

“Unfortunately, the Do Nothing Congress wants to go home,” Pelosi said.

“Instead of leaving town for seven weeks after being gone for four or five weeks [this summer], let’s work across the aisle to restore fiscal responsibility, put people to work, and strengthen the middle class. We absolutely have to do that for the American people,” she said.

    Meaning they have worked for about 8 months out of this year, as they take several weeks off around the holidays…..could they know something is about to come down and they are running to hide?????

    WOW…really? Is this even legal? How can congress decide to just not show up for work? Maybe I’ll take a seven week break from my job…oh that’s right I DON’T HAVE THAT LUXURY. Unbelievable.
    I have been thinking a lot about a video that was posted here, the one with the dots where a million of dots listened to what one dot was telling them to do. I have been asking every day since then how can 7 BILLION people be controlled by like maybe a few thousand. How is this possible? It must be the greatest slave to master disproportion in the entire universe. I mean really, SEVEN BILLION marching to the drum of a few hundred? And even if it’s a million, so what?
    7 billion slaves. 7 billion people, and each individual suffers (I’m not counting the elite because their number is NEGLIGIBLE). With 7 billion people, no one needs to suffer! My God! So many hands to do so much work! We can create quite a comfortable world for ourselves. I learned in an INTRO TO ACTING course in college (capitalized that to emphasize that this info is common knowledge enough to be taught in an acting class) that an individual gets more out of the group than what he or she puts into the group. Each individual benefits from the entire groups’ creation. So, there is no reason other than idiocy for 7 BILLION people to suffer. If there were like, 20 billions masters, maybe. But there’s maybe like one million tops, and at the top of the iceberg there is probably one person.
    So who is doing the enslaving really? The people are enslaving each other. The human collective is enslaving itself. The people are keeping the elite’s fantasy going. The police officers, the bank tellers, the school teachers (who turn our kids’ brains into goop by following the states’ brain-melting curriculum, well, otherwise they get fired of course), the reporters (who don’t ask tough questions), the oil industry workers (who drill the Earth at the behest of sociopaths), the IRS (who steal money from people), the “intelligence” officers who are somehow blinded to the fact that they live in a matrix, etc. Look at your job and see if it in any way facilitates the matrix. Are you stomping on your fellow human beings in some way for no reason other than because the state tells you to do it? If so, STOP DOING IT! STOP IT! It may mean quitting your job, and doing something else, something more healing and positive. You must be the change you wish to see, because if enough people do that, follow their conscience rather than the state, the matrix will cease to exist. Otherwise it won’t. I live with my parents, but at least I’m not beating up protesters, or giving people vaccines or toxic drugs. At least I’m not drilling the Earth, or wasting children’s most precious developmental years on standardized test-taking. People can learn so much when they’re children! I learned the English language in a matter of days after emigrating here! If only I had been taught how to cook, how to sow, how to do relationships, self-defense, etc. I would be a completely different person. No. The state doesn’t want a capable, empowered populace. The state wants people to eat fast food, to not know how to connect or cooperate (the people must not organize against the state!), to be defenseless, to be hassled by donut-eating cops. The state wants to take kids away, when they’re growing and most able to learn, and isolates them from the world in window-barred “schools”, and pummels their heads with NOTHING, and makes inept imps out of them. It happened to you. It happened to me. See it for what it is.
    All we can do now is surrender to our conscience, and have faith that by doing so, things will get better.
