#41, Markwayne Mullin (OK - 02)

As part of my “tribute” to the U.S. House Repugs and their 50 51 52 votes to repeal the Affordable Care Law...
  • Mullin confessed to being a “birther” here (that pretty much seems to be required for admission into the Teahadist “club”).

  • He said here that he personally witnessed food stamp “fraud” in Washington, D.C. because someone who was poor was also apparently able-bodied too, which was too much for his tiny mind to process I suppose (of course, he said this when he was safely back in his home district).

  • Oh, and did you know that Mullin took about $370,000 in stimulus funds (here – so much for that baaad “big gumint”).

  • Here, he claimed that the price of a McDonald’s hamburger would rise to $20 if the minimum wage was raised to $10 an hour (hat tip to Blue Oklahoma for the above two links).

  • And of course he denies that climate change is happening, even though he’s from a state that has been buffeted severely by its effects (here).
  • And for the record, let it be known that Mullin took over the seat once held by "Democrat" Dan Boren, so the voters of his district apparently didn't have to worry about any actual performance on their behalf from one bad choice to another.
