Dave Obey's Right (!!!)

This may not happen often--but I agree with Dave Obey.

Grandstanding is a vice practiced by both parties. In this case, it's led by the Pubbies.

U.S. Congressman Mike Pence issued the following statement today after the Pence-Hensarling-Flake Amendment passed the House of Representatives. The amendment to the Financial Services Appropriations bill prohibits funds from being used by the Federal Communications Commission to impose the Fairness Doctrine on broadcasters. The amendment passed 309-115.

True, as far as it goes.

But it's the NEXT Administration which will appoint members to the FCC--or whose Attorney General will attempt to change the rules to Impose Fairness.

Not this Administration.

And Dave Obey gets it:

David Obey responds: “This issue is much ado about nothing.”

For the time being, Obey is right.
