Pete Sessions Admits Sole Mission Is Winning Senate, Not Governing

Pete Sessions just came right out and said it: House Republicans are not in Washington, DC to govern. They're there to create messaging opportunities to gain control of the Senate.


“Everything we do in this body should be about messaging to win back the Senate,” he said. “That’s it. If you don’t want Benghazis to happen or you want an investigation for Benghazi, if you want an investigation on the IRS as opposed to the excuses that [Senate Majority Leader] Harry Reid is all about, if you do not like what’s happening at the [National Security Agency], then you gain the Senate.”

Well, then. At least he was honest about it, but it seems to me that this is something that should be widely distributed so everyone understands why nothing is being done in Congress.

American taxpayers are paying nearly $200,000 per year to Sessions and his compatriots for messaging. when they get it for free from Fox News, CNN, and more lately, ABC, NBC, and CBS.

Might be time to send them off to the Republican Retirement farm, right?
