Congressional Dems: "Go Ahead, Watch Porn on Gov't Time!"

Nothing better to do while earning 150% of the average American's wage?

Well!! Taxpayer-paid employees can watch porn on taxpayer-supplied computers!!

House Republicans on Thursday sidetracked an $80 billion technology bill, cutting out all new programs as part of an anti-pornography amendment and then daring Democrats to oppose the change.

Democrats said their members had to support the GOP amendment to avoid being subject to election-year attack ads claiming they supported pornography.

The GOP measure, which passed 292-126, effectively eliminated some of the key initiatives in the technology bill while putting members on record as supporting the firing of government workers who view or download pornography on the job.

Democrats pulled the technology bill rather than pass the watered-down version. --AP

The excuse was "It's watered-down."

Bawney Fwank could not be reached for comment. He was teabagging his monitor.

Yep. Good for them. Shame on the Repugs for playing political games while thwarting the interests of the American people.
