Thanks for nothing, Roy.
Today the House Third Read and Passed HB 151, trying to fix the state’s REAL ID mess caused by a previous right wingnut controlled session of the General Assembly.
Rick Brattin (r) submitted an amendment which wasn’t considered:
….This section shall be known and may be cited as the “Show-Me Your Papers Act”…
Robert Ross (r) submitted an amendment which was defeated:
“115.016 Any elected official who votes or takes an action to support a measure seeking compliance with the federal REAL ID Act of 2005 shall display, in a prominent location, in bold font with a text height not less than one-tenth of the article being circulated, at each and every election the member files for after the affirmative vote or action, the following description of his or her allegiance:
I WOULD RATHER KNEEL TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THAN STAND STRONG PROTECTING MY CONSTITUENTS’ RIGHT TO PRIVACY”….
Joe Don McGaugh (r) submitted an amendment which wasn’t considered:
…Any elected official who votes or takes an action against a measure seeking compliance with the federal REAL ID Act of 2005 shall display, in prominent location, in bold font with a text height not less than one-tenth of the article being posted, at each and every airport in the state, the elected official’s office and home phone number…
I bet they’d all love to get those phone calls starting in January 2018.
Republicans making noise about protecting our right to privacy? That’s a laugh.
HB 361 (2009): creating a REAL ID mess for Missourians – HB 151 and HB 166 (2017): sort of try to fix it (December 14, 2016)

You’re missing the point. Roy raked in $185K by selling his vote to the ISPs, so all is well in Bluntville. How can it be a bad bill if someone’s willing to drop that amount of coin?

But, but, the right wingnuts in the Missouri General Assembly are so very superficially concerned about our privacy, shouldn’t Roy Blunt be just as superficially concerned?
