WASHINGTON, DC – Tea Party Republican U. S. Representative Dave Brat (R-VA) officially co-sponsored the PAST ACT today. His action honored his campaign pledge to to the All American Walking Horse Alliance, and satisfied the Hastert Rule. A “Majority of the Majority” of the Republican Party House members now backs the PAST ACT.
Brat’s co-sponsorship clears the way for a House Floor Vote on the PAST ACT animal cruelty legislation which will ban the sore Big Lick Tennessee Walking Horse which is now shown wearing chains on its ankles in 10-15 lb shoes called “packages”.
The horses are trained sore in order to be able to perform the vaunted Big Lick, then an “inspection” game ensues to get them into the show ring
Dave Brat becomes the 305th United States Representative to say no more pads and chains to create the sore Big Lick.
Now over 70% of the U. S. House of Representatives support #PASSTHEPASTACT.
“All We Need Is A Vote” “¦. Jan Schakowsy, (D-IL) – June 18, 2014.
