Congress Removes the Most Important Word from Federal Law that Applies to Its Members

The Senate and the House have now both voted to pass S.2367 to remove the word “lunatic” from federal law.

“The lone ‘no’ vote was cast by Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, who said in a statement that “not only should we not eliminate the word ‘lunatic’ from federal law when the most pressing issue of the day is saving our country from bankruptcy, we should use the word to describe the people who want to continue with business as usual in Washington.”

Doesn’t Congress have anything better to do. On the other hand, if all Congress did was pass stupid laws like this then we would all be better off.

Ron Paul did not vote.
