Another reason why not to be a Republican

April 3, 2010

Since the battle over healthcare is now over, it seems that Republicans have moved onto far more important legislation.  An internal conflict has arisen in the Republican party over Congressman Patrick T. McHenry’s (R-NC) bill to replace President Ulysses S. Grant with the late Ronald Reagan on the $50 bill.

Don’t get me wrong. I have a tremendous amount of respect for President Reagan and some of the great things he did for many people around the world in his personal vendetta against communism. However, is now really the proper time for a fight over who should be on currency?

And the Tea Party says that Democrats aren’t “listening to the people.” …really?

Well, I think that your average American is more concerned about how health insurance for her kids than who should be on the $50 bill.

Too bad the Republican party doesn’t seem to understand that.
