I hate to pick on one person but I am sitting here listening to the House debate on healthcare and this guy pops up on my screen to put his two cents in. That bow tie and stylish bicycle lapel pin just made me screamed "please get off my screen".
Now rash judgments are not acceptable at the center of the universe here so to complete my research I simply Googled "Bicycle Blumenauer" and found this web page that confirmed my knee jerk that Mr. Blumenauer should be banned from the COU.
To save you reading time I can summarize for you: Mr. Blumenauer is pushing a bill that would give a tax break to U.S. corporations that offer compensation to employees who choose to ride their bikes to work. Now to be clear, we love bike riders. We even like bike riders who choose to ride to work. We even think bike riders should be given safe transit lanes to allow them to ride to work.
What we do not approve is the ever expansion of the tax code from both sides. Here is a great blog article about the growing complexity of the U.S federal tax code.
So give us a break Oregonians.. stop sending these D-bags to Congresss and come on Mr. Blumenauer stop adding stupid pages to our tax code.
You are here by banned from the Center although I will go bike riding with you anytime you want.
