A COUPLE OF “GOOD OLE BOYS” RIDING A BUS ACROSS KENTUCKY – POLITICS MAKES FOR STRANGE BEDFELLOWS – PAST ACT HANGS IN THE BALANCE NEXT WEEK

Muhlenberg County, Kentucky  –  PAST ACT antagonists, but locked arms Republican Campaigners,  Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Representative Ed Whitfield (R-KY) stumped together for the past 10 days across Congressman Ed Whitfield’s First District of Kentucky.  The two politicians were accompanied by country pop performer    Lee Greenwood who sang “God Bless The USA” at each stop.

THE PAST ACT END GAME SCENARIO

Congressman Ed Whitfield currently has 305 U. S. Representatives co-sponsoring the PAST ACT in the U. S. House, but House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH)  so far refuses to give Whitfield a vote on his Bill.   There is a faint hope that Boehner might relent after the November 4 election, but there are few legislative days left on the House Calendar.

And the other guy on the bus from Kentucky is blocking the PAST ACT in the U. S. Senate along with Cock Fighter B. L. Cozad, Jr.’s favorite Senator from Tennessee,  the Honorable Lamar Alexander (R-TN).  Cozad practices bloody  “Cock Fighting”  to the death which is one of two  “Tennessee Traditions” which U. S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN)  adores.

There is little time left, and absolutely no margin for error (such as the fumbling related to the TWHBEA By-Law proposal)  if the PAST ACT  is to become law.

The odds for its passage appear to be long.

Stay tuned.
