Normally one might give even Virginia Foxx an applaud for this, after the scare in DC today and the extremely quick actions by these first responders in protecting the people they serve honorably, normally.

But her tweet shows just how 'clueless' NC's Virginia Foxx is as well as the Whole Freakin House if no one stood and mentioned a simple fact!!!!!

And she just had to rush it out, campaign contribution e following soon.

She apparently didn't feel the need to mention the fact that they are working for no pay in her 'tweet' and 'support' photo, thanks to her and the like minded that are holding them and the rest of the country hostage!

Just Vote

Then get back to your "I'm more patriotic then you are!" crap, flags in breast pockets and flag lapel pins in place!!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    likes on their side: clueless but takes supervision well.  They tell her what to do, and by George she does it.  She claims to have been a teacher in NC.  I wonder what her former students think of her.  At least it's a good thing that she's no longer trying to expand young minds by closing them.

    I guess I'm different than most here--in this example, cops have a contract and their salary has a regular distribution time, if the city breaks the contract, the cops should react--not necessarily a strike, maybe a ticket barrage.  The "man" treats workers like good little slaves--to be abused at will--and expect us minions to not gripe or to react.

    Folks working for free, willing to lay down their own lives to protect their abusers. Shocking to me, though, is that ABC actually noticed the situation that the hypocrites clapping so hard in the House were honoring people they'd just lifted their collective leg on.

    I wonder if anyone will be so churlish as to ask Rep. Foxx or her compatriots if this changes their collective mind about paying for goods and services rendered? Or is a paycheck reserved only for the likes of Rep. Foxx?

        If any of the unpaid workers got hurt or killed saving the worthless hides of House Republicans, those same Republicans giving a standing ovation would cheerfully deny them or their families any benefits for their sacrifice. You know, because they weren't supposed to be on the job, so it's their own fault they got hurt or killed.

    That Sen Reid was once a 'capital police officer' as a young man?

    They were just talking about all this on the PBS Newshour and the young reporter being asked questions said that Reid called up the injured officer, a capital police officer, who's still in the hospital but will be alright, and talked to him.

    Apparently the officer was injured when his cruiser hit and unmovable object and the cruiser was heavily damaged.
