Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) wrote a letter last April addressed to House Speaker, John Boehner, proclaiming his discontent with the immigration reform bill. When it got into former high school teacher Rep. Mark Takano (D-CA) hands, he employed every teacher’s best friend, a red marker, to make some hilariously condescending corrections.
From Happy Place:
Hoping that members of the House of Representatives will start using facts and coherent logic to advance the nation’s interest is still a fool’s errand, but there’s one member of Congress, Rep. Mark Takano (D-CA), who’s willing to at least pretend it’s possible. Breaking out the teacher’s most potent weapon, a red pen, he marked up Republican House members’ letter to John Boehner forcing asking him to resist the immigration reform bill that has already passed America’s slightly-less-insane upper chamber. Included in his comments are some words we haven’t seen on a Congressional document in years, like ‘evidence,’ as well as an awesome invitation to ‘come by my office’ if ‘you don’t understand the bill.’
Thought I’d offer my edits to the author before they submitted their final version… Still not signing it.
