Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), who made pointless investigations into the so-called IRS Tea Party scandal and the Benghazi U.S. consulate attack a mainstay of his committee chairmanship, now says he’s willing to vote for a clean continuing resolution, without any strings attached. Yes, he’s also giving up on defunding Obamacare. Um, did he see his party’s imploding poll numbers? LOL.
“I’ll vote for a clean C.R.,” Issa said. “But let’s understand that the president wants and is happy, signed a bill that said members of Congress and their staff would, quote, be in Obamacare. He didn’t put himself into it. It’s time for him to be in that program along with the Vice President, all the thousands of political appointees.” Source: Talking Points Memo
