When you have bad news or you want to sneak something by the general public, you usually wait until Friday evening to release it, while everyone’s attention is elsewhere. With all of the focus on Trump right now, even more than usually in the past day, Republicans in Congress are getting ready for something big.
Recent legislation submitted to the House of Representatives by Republicans aim to repeal Obamacare and eliminate the EPA. Both bills have been submitted to committees and may be discussed in the coming days.
This is the perfect time, if you’re a member of either party, to sneak something by while the media isn’t paying much attention to Congress.
In the coming days, there will probably be a flurry of legislation introduced in an attempt to keep it out of the watchful eye of the public. Some of it will be introduced according to the schedules of the sponsors, which just happened to line up with the Flynn scandal. Other bills though will be named something fairly innocent, but will hide something dangerous in the text.
Around 20 bills are introduced in the House on Wednesdays and close to the same number on Thursdays, it’s a safe bet that quite a few more than normal get submitted in the next two days.
