PhoboQuotable - Tony Perkins

"What if Democratic leaders are saving their most controversial issues until after November when voters are powerless to do anything about it? That's a question more insiders are beginning to ask as big ticket legislation on spending, the military, global warming and campaign finance sit curiously idle.

"Unfortunately for the American people, that could mean everything from forcing open homosexuality on the military and overturning the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) to legislation attacking pregnancy care centers and the pro-life Hyde Amendment. The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) could squeak through, along with "card check" and cap-and-tax legislation. And that's not all. You can also expect some of the most notorious porkers in Congress to receive major parting gifts from the Appropriations Committee. Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) is one member who notes the trouble ahead. 'Members of Congress are supposed to represent their constituents, not override them like sore losers in the lame-duck session.'

"Of course, 'representing their constituents' hasn't exactly been a hallmark of this majority. But it's never too late to start! Please sign our petition asking Members of Congress to respect the wishes of voters after the election and leave the policy-making to the next Congress." - Family Research Council fuhrer Tony Perkins, preemptively celebrating a Democratic loss in November and bizarrely demanding that Congress cease passing bills after the election.
