Sessions Reminds Voters Why They HATE Politicians with a Sense of Entitlement

"Every prudent man acts with knowledge,
But a fool lays open his folly."
Proverbs 13:16

Bill Flores has belatedly endorsed a successor.  Whatever.  Not really surprising.

In response to Flores' announcement, however, Pete Sessions released quite the statement:
When I am elected to represent CD-17, I will begin with more seniority than Rep. Flores has now. That seniority will help deliver highway funding, support our research institutions, promote our agriculture community and protect Waco and Bryan-College Station in redistricting. That same seniority will help me also deliver on the key issues facing our nation: changing our immigration laws, building the southern border wall and balancing the budget. Most importantly, Rep. Flores knows nothing can be done for the Republican agenda in the House unless Republicans take back the majority. Having led the campaign to defeat Nancy Pelosi in 2010, Bill knows that I can help do that again. A freshman member of Congress will not be as effective in helping to win the majority, and Rep. Flores knows that. It took him three terms to get on Energy and Commerce.”
Is this a joke?!?

Some thoughts:
  • Pete Sessions had 20 years in Congress to "help deliver highway funding," yet Downtown Dallas (where I-30, I-35, and I-45 intersect) remains the most congested area in the state.
  • The Texas Legislature handles redistricting, not Congress.
  • Pete Sessions was a well known obstacle to fixing the national issues he lists (immigration/spending) during his time in Congress.
  • The only reason why Nancy Pelosi is speaker in the first place is because losers like Pete Sessions lost in 2018.
  • "It took him three terms to get on Energy and Commerce."  That's not exactly wrong.  But it's still an incredibly smarmy thing that only someone with a gigantic sense of entitlement would say.
Bottom Line: Chutzpah, etc....
