Darrell Issa is a busy man, and now he’s asking the American people directly to assist him. He wants to know from businesses around the country what Washington is doing to hold them back. He should get plenty of responses.
Issa, as head of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform already has Frank Guinta working on exactly what happened to the money that went to all those bailouts, and now he wants to know what government regulations are strangling businesses in this country. A site called americanjobcreators.com has been set up to get feedback from American business. Companies can say what they want in their own words. The site is set up to accept documents, so whatever is on your mind, you can tell Issa, the way you would tell him.
After being ignored that last two years, this is a breath of fresh air. But even in the darkest days when Republicans had no power at all, Issa was hard at work. While James and Hannah were exposing ACORN with their undercover videos, Issa had already beaten them to it with a flaming report that tore apart that criminal organization. It fell on deaf ears at the time, but I think we can be reasonably assured that report will make its way back into the halls of Congress.
If there is one committee that Obama and his cronies should fear, it’s the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Issa and the boys can make life miserable for the Democrats the next few years, and quite possibly could expose a few RINO’s in the process. Getting the American people engaged in the process may end up being a brilliant tactical move before 2012 comes along. Working with the people as opposed to dictating to them sounds like a better way to garner some votes. The Democrats couldn’t figure this out before November, and they paid a price. My guess is that they’ll pay a price again in 2012, and if Issa has anything to say about it, November will have been just a warmup.
While Obama looks to put roadblocks across the path of every business, Issa is looking to remove them. Something has got to give, and all the weight seems to be shifting to the side of the American people. Keep up the good work Darrell. I’m sure the Dems will let us know exactly how good a job you’re doing.
