DCCC Chairman Emanuel, DSCC Chairman Schumer to Hold Press Conference on
Oversight and the Cost of the Rubber Stamp Congress

(Washington, D.C.) - Tomorrow, at Democratic National Headquarters,

and the war in Iraq, the Republicans running this country have neglected
their responsibilities in oversight and American families are feeling
the cost.

Senator Charles Schumer

WHAT: Press conference on oversight and the Rubber Stamp
Republican Congress

WHEN: Thursday, March 9, 2006 -- 11:45 a.m. (EST)

430 South Capitol Street, SE

Washington, DC

Has Emanuel ever spent any time on the house floor?

The Republican Party is doing nothing right and the Democratic Party is doing nothing.

It would be nice if one of the Democrats in congress actually got up and proposed a solution to one of our many problems.

Move all U.
S. troops onto the two bases we are building near the OIL. Establish and maintain these at all costs. Bar none, i.e. weaponry or bombs. Establish these as the frontline on terror. We need the oil to fight terrorists worldwide. We can't leave the OIL. Our current policy is neither strategical nor moral. It is similar to being murdered for "Jay Walking."
