It's A Crime To Lie To Congress?

Wow, Roger Clemens charged with lying to Congress.  Who knew?  As bad as lying to Congress must be, since they are charging him with a federal crime, don't you think Congress lying to the American people should be a crime?  We are lied to on almost a daily basis by our Congress. 

Do you remember being told that the health care bill would reduce your health care costs?  LIE.  Do you remember being told it would reduce the budget deficit? LIE.  Do you remember, well I don't have all night. suffice it to say our Congress does things it has no power to do and fails to do some of the most important things it is supposed to do.  Of course the current, and even former members of the Executive Branch are no better.

I for one am tired of being lied to by Congress.  If there was a way to bring the Congressional liars up on charges, I would be all for it.  In fact, if there was a way to bring any of the lying elected officials up on charges I would be for that too.  We deserve better, or do we?  After all we were dumb enough to elect them in the first place.

Roger had one heck of a fastball.
