Giffords returns, Tea Party furious with deal

A very interesting day yesterday, politically speaking.

Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords returned to the House of Representatives for the first time since being wounded in an assassination attempt.

If you see the photo above, Giffords return was marred by the antics of Los Angeles-based Congressional Representatives Brad Sherman and Janice Hahn. They couldn't resist the pull of national publicity and both crammed their mugs into the frame next to Giffords on the national newsfeed.

These Democrats... it never stops with them.

Technically, I don't agree with Giffords returning and voting on important legislation. She has had a major brain injury and her level of impairment is unknown to her voters. If she were an airline pilot, a surgeon, or a police officer, she wouldn't be returning to work. I think her voters deserve some type of certification that she is still capable...but that is up to them to fight over.

The votes that were cast were a betrayal of the Tea Party.... allowing more debt and reckless behavior from the US Government.

We are only a few years away from becoming Greece at this point.

But it is good to know there were some Republican heroes who voted no.
