Terri Sewell's 4 Sponsored Bill's in 2 Years

Working Hard or Hardly Working?

In the wake of the her failed attempt at "helping" the unemployed and underemployed on Wednesday's laughable Job-less fair, I decided to research all of the Congresswoman's sponsored Bills. It didn't take long.

She was elected in 2010 and she has sponsored a whopping 4 Bills, Four. I know elementary school kids who write more book reports in a semester than that. Let's look at the these Bills.

May 4, 2011- H.Res 1730

Small Business Start-Up Savings Account Act of 2011
Amends the IRS code to provide for tax-exempt small business start up savings accounts to pay for trade or business expenses, including the purchase of equipment of facilities, marketing, training, incorporation, and accounting fees. This might be the only Bill that will be worth anything because it can be part of the tax code, it's been referred to House Committee on Ways and Means. Basically, the people that set up the taxes in the country.

Oct. 12, 2011- H. Res 432
Fred Shuttlesworth

Celebrating the life and achievements of Reverend Fred Lee Shuttlesworth and honoring his tireless efforts in the fight against segregation and his steadfast commitment to the civil rights of all people. That's nice and all, but how does that really help the poor and economically depressed people currently occupying her district. What about all of her campaign promises?  I thought her top priority was going to be jobs and the pathetic excuse for a transit system we have here. No... we think its more fitting to latch on to the civil rights movement because old black people down here like that crap, and pandering to them translates to votes and young blacks don't vote or move out of Alabama, for good reason. (The lack of jobs, thanks Terri Sewell for proving my point). 

Jan. 18, 2012- H. Res. 518

Congratulating the University of Alabama Crimson Tide football team for winning the 2011 Bowl Championship Series National Championship. You have got to be joking...This is what's important? Football. This is one of the reasons Alabama takes the bottom spot in education, economics, city planning and pretty much anything positive. But God help us, we have fried chicken, football, beer, a church on every block, a murder every day and don't let anyone say anything bad about St. Nick Saban. The championship win is fine and congratulating the team is fine, but what about your district Congresswoman? We have celebrities that have done more with the mantle of responsibility of public office than people we elect and that's pathetic. This is pathetic. Don't go on about how you were called to lead and how you want to help people, when this is the only nonsense you come up with. Save the stories about your dad and your mom and how they inspired you. If this is your best, then you really should hang your head in shame, because  this isn't good enough. If you believe what you have done is your best, I question how you made it at Princeton and I would ask for a refund.

Feb. 27, 2012- H. Res. 562
Commitment-Selma March

Directing the Office of the Historian to compile oral histories from current and former Members of the House of Representatives involved in the historic and annual Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, marches as well as the civil rights movement in general, for the purposes of expanding or augmenting the historic record and for public dissemination and education. Is there anything new about the bridge burning, busing, sit-ins, dogs and hoses, when people are trying desperately to get a job. This seems like an ineffective use of your time Congresswoman. Do we not have a Civil Rights museum in Birmingham? Why do we need more histories when we already have histories? We even have Martin Luther King's jail cell. This is not what you were sent to Washington to do. That wasn't the platform that you ran on. You were supposed to work with people to help bring economic relief to your district because your opponent was too combative. Remember? Being a librarian in designer clothes was not the deal. Please loosen the weave and get your head out of your *ss and get it together.

Congresswoman, last time around, you had the benefit of no political baggage. This time, you have a schizo voting record and 4 bills, 3 of which, you are being nothing more than a library aide and 1 where you are simply a co-sponsor with 8 others. With the obvious political motives of that ineptly executed excuse for a job fair with no jobs, you might have some issues come re-election time. Just because you know Michelle Obama doesn't mean you will be re-elected. I know someone that knows Prince, that doesn't mean that I am going to Paisley Park anytime soon. You had better wise up and actually start to do what you were sent to Washington to do or you will be replaced just as easily as Earl Hilliard.

Artur Davis
I sincerely hope you don't have delusions of becoming Governor, you saw how well that worked for Artur Davis.
