Bob Goodlatte Appears Set to Do Nothing on Voting Rights Act, Immigration

MarciaFudge1

The Goodlatte Agenda: Nothing.  Yesterday, CBC Chair Marcia Fudge challenged House Judiciary Committee Chair Bob Goodlatte to move the Voting Rights Act bill forward.  Just as with immigration reform, Goodlatte appears to be set to do nothing on either issue — a familiar pattern in the GOP controlled House during the Obama presidency. 

The House is set to be out of session in August, October and December.  With time running out, Chairman Goodlatte is showing no signs of legislative action on big issues. 

Fudge told reporters that she has talked to members of the GOP leadership in the House as a member of the Voting Rights Act task force.

The ten-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina is here. How the hell do I write about that? Perhaps it’s appropriate to offer a disclaimer: I don’t live in New Orleans, and I never have. I can’t speak from the perspective ...

  1. Please visit our blog to sign our Moveon petition asking House Speaker John Boehner to protect voters now by scheduling a full vote on the Voting Rights Act Amendment before Congress recesses in August.


  2. I keep looking for comments on politic365…..None

    The goddamned wetbacks are going to eat African Americans alive.

    SO….Don’t worry; hell.


  3. I’ve been surfing online greater than 3 hours these days, yet I by no means found any interesting article like yours.
    It is beautiful price sufficient for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content as
    you probably did, the internet will be a lot more helpful
    than ever before.


  4. You need to be a part of a contest for one of the finest blogs on the net.

    I most certainly will recommend this blog!

    My web blog; minecraft apps
