    Rep. Emmer, once a member of a legislative body where something happens is now a member of a legislative body where nothing happens. This is a promotion?

    Wasn’t it

    the Republicans who whined and whined about the ACA being crammed down the throats of Americans, because nobody had read the bill, and now they are telling their own team – don’t take the time to read bills. Now that is some clever legislating. Good for them however, for at least owning up to being intellectually lazy.

    How big a league can it be,

    if Tom Emmer’s a member? The man’s failed his way to office.

    Emmer will also learn the power of lobbyists who are very good at getting what they want. DC is the big game and much different then the state legislature.
    The best part he is a short walk to the Verizon Center to watch the Washington Capitals.
