The stock market is diving and we are going to the Floor to vote on men's diving (swimming)....really!
The Democrats refuse to present a Budget, so we vote on sports figures. Congress must do better. I am fired up........thanks for reading
Even if we want to celebrate the Utah Jazz for coming in 4th, I will only vote Present.
Watch ESPN and hold a home town parade, but Congress is not where you should come seeking recognition in athletics.
No more will I vote in favor of recognizing sports accomplishments. People who change the world in math, science, medicine-these I support
Law enforcement, border patrol agents, and millions others who are changing people's lives.
Let's start recognizing true heroes--military, teachers, scientists, students who triumph in something other than sports
No longer will I vote for recognizing sports teams or athletes for simply winning. Congrats! They won! But I am only going to vote Present
I am done! Today we are recognizing Phil Mickelson and University of Texas men's swimming and diving team.
While I agree with him that congress shouldn't vote to honor everyone who wins a championship, it seems a little hypocritical coming from someone whose early campaign was "I'm not Chris Cannon, and I played football at BYU." OK, maybe hypocrisy is not the right word for that.
However, does any other word come to mind when you see this sports-related resolution?
