Procedural changes impede the chamber's traditional deliberative function
Topic - Ben Lujan
Destroying jobs is hard work, but many liberal Democrats have a real knack for it. As early as Thursday, the House of Representatives could vote on an amendment from Rep. Ben Lujan of New Mexico to give Indian tribes the authority to shut down mining projects on any land they regard as sacred. This would ensure there are no jobs where jobs are needed most.
"The decision by Gov. Martinez to surround herself with staff like this speaks volumes about her leadership and character. It sends a message that this behavior is acceptable," Lujan said. "Using such derogatory terms for women or those who interchange English and Spanish when they speak should not be tolerated."
