Not content to just piss on children by voting against the SCHIP bill Tiahrt stood before the mic and demanded a recorded vote on a resolution supporting Mother's Day. He wanted people on the record on who supported mom's and who didn't. Tiahrt voted with fellow Republicans in denouncing mothers and Mother's Day.
The resolution which, prior to the counted vote, was passed unanimously. It simply said that the bill was, "Celebrating the role of mothers in the United States and supporting the goals and ideals of Mother's Day."
The vote comes just after revelations were made involving Republican family values Representative Vito Fossella loves families so much he has a second one that he keeps hidden. Fossella, who was arrested for drunk driving after breaking tables in a D.C. bar called his mistress to help bail him out. The mistress is also the mother of his three year old daughter. Fossella's wife didn't know about the affair and the child and she wasn't very pleased when she refused to be near him during a press conference. Needless to say Fossella wasn't able to vote against Mother's Day.
So why does Tiahrt hate his mom? Nobody may ever know, but he sure does sound angry.
Tiahrt commented on his website that he fully supports Mother's Day and was proud to vote in favor of it.
"Earlier this week I had the privilege of voting for the Mother’s Day resolution, H.Res.1113, that passed the House by a vote of 412-0. I was pleased to show my support for the estimated 82 million moms in the United States who make contributions toward building strong families, thriving communities, and ultimately a strong Nation."
Tiahrt clearly can't keep his flip-flops organized.
