Amendment To Block Moratorium Against Drilling Is Killed By Vote… Of Non-US Citizens. Wait. What?!

traitorOk, this one pisses me off to no end.  How does a House committee have people on it who are not allowed to vote?  How do people who are not even citizens decide the direction of our country?

Last week, Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), a member of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, proposed an amendment to the CLEAR Act to require an end to the President’s moratorium on deepwater offshore drilling. Twenty-two of the committee’s congressmen, including the committee chairman and two other Democrats, voted in favor of Rep. Cassidy’s amendment. Twenty-one congressmen, all Dems, voted no.

But the recorded vote was 22 Yea, 26 Nea. The moratorium stands.

How did 21 Nea votes get tallied as 26? Easy. The committee’s membership contains no less than five “non-voting delegates”, all of them Democrats. So, effectively, the deepwater drilling moratorium that will devastate the States of Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi and Alabama was kept in place by delegates from Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the Virgin Islands and the Northern Marianas Islands.

So over 10% of the votes on this key committee go to extra-Constitutional delegates from territories whose residents aren’t U.S. citizens, can’t vote for President, and pay no Federal tax.
