John McCain and Lindsey Graham admit they didn’t know the defense bill legalized bestiality in the military
My two Senators–Democrat Jeanne Shaheen, and Republican Kelly Ayotte–both hailed the passage of the recent defense bill; this was one of the only times–if not the only time–they voted the same way on a piece of legislation. But one would have to wonder if they would have both hailed this as a victory if they had realized that this bill lifted the ban on bestiality in the military.
Perhaps they did not bother to read the bill before they decided to vote on it, and if this is the case it appears as if they are not alone. As can be read here and here, “Republicans” John McCain and Lindsey Graham both were asked whether they knew the defense bill, which they both voted in favor of, lifted the ban on bestiality in the military and both declared they had no clue this provision was in the bill.
During the debate over Obamacare Nancy Pelosi once famously quipped that the bill needed to be passed so that we could see what was in it, and naturally this–rightfully so–drew the condemnation of those opposed to the bill. The Obamacare bill was passed even though nobody knew what was in the bill, and Republicans railed against how irresponsible the Congress was for voting on a bill that wasn’t read.
And yet it appears as if the Congress has learned nothing from the Obamacare debacle; either Lindsey Graham and John McCain read the bill and agreed with the provision which lifted the ban on bestiality, or they did not read the bill and voted on it anyway. I have a hard time believing that even liberal Republicans such as Graham and McCain would have voted to lift the ban on bestiality in the military and am left to believe that they voted on this bill without reading it.
Is it too much to ask for from our elected officials on both sides of the aisle to read what they are voting on? Apparently it is because even those that complained about the Congress voting on Obamacare without first reading it did exactly the same when they voted to legalize bestiality in the military.
It really is time to vote all of these clowns out and start anew as soon as possible.
