The words to Schoolhouse Rock might need an update if Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee is right. The campy animated shorts from the 1970s, among other things, helped children learn how laws are made.
In Im just a bill, an anthropomorphic piece of legislation named Bill sang a catchy tune about how things used to be done.
Well, now Im stuck in committee, the song went, and I sit here and wait, while a few key congressmen discuss and debate, whether they should let me be a law. How I hope and pray that they will, but today, Im still just a bill. Mrs. Jackson Lee is tired of waiting.
In remarks made before the Congressional Full Employment Caucus late last month, the Texas Democrat said theres a new way of getting things done in Washington.
Well give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign with pride and strength, she said in a video obtained by the Media Research Center. These executive orders should be our No. 1 priority, she added in addressing fellow lawmakers or perhaps that should be former lawmakers.
Instead of persuading a majority of her House and Senate colleagues about the wisdom of her bill so it can be duly passed and presented to the president for his signature or veto, Mrs. Jackson Lee finds it more efficient to cut out the middleman.

I don't know whether she has any kids, but natural selection might just doom them and their progeny into extinction eventually.
sjl could not write directions on breathing.
You're assuming that you are fitter. Maybe in the environment of Washington DC, being a slack-jawed idiot is a better survival method than working your fingers to the bone to pay taxes to support them.
Also, am I the only one bothered by the Schoolhouse Rock "I'm Just a Bill"? The bill was about forcing school buses to stop at railroad tracks. That is clearly outside the Constitutional powers of Congress under Article I, Section 8. But then so is just about every other law passed recently.
He has taught his comrads well, you dont need to follow the law it doesnt apply to you sure those who oppose will cry and complain but we know no one will get in our way. What say you America?
Just imagine a whole congressional district of Sheila Jackson Lees. ...vast majority, anyway.
The SHEILA RAP.
Lord, have mercy!
In a world designed to keep me amused all of obamas future executive orders would be written by Sheila Jackson Lee herdelf and given, unedited, unreviewed and without spell check, directly to Obsma to become law as written.
Now that the great Sid Caesar is dead, the role of master of gibberish and double-talk is open; I suspect SJL has no serious competition.
Hold on. Don’t jump to conclusions. Jackson Lee is so stupid that she may actually think that Congress passes executive orders for the president to sign.
Apparently my own attemp at gibberish is at work
That’s what it sounds like she said...though its is unclear whether she actually means to send him ones written, or some set of blank ones.
Sheila Jackson Lee is a member of The Socialist Party of America.
I think that says it all, except it was she, who asked the guy from NASA, that with the mechanical rovers on Mars, if we can visit the place where the American flag was planted. It was she, that opened her mouth about nationalizing the oil and gas industry.
Hold on. Dont jump to conclusions. Jackson Lee is so stupid that she may actually think that Congress passes executive orders for the president to sign.
Good point..as stupid as this idiot is, she is still intellectually superior to Rep Hank Johnson, (D-GA) of “Guam tipping over” fame...now that guy is a slow leak on a good day.
Hey MS excrement for brains, we are waiting for you to retire.
Some Conservative out there who knows CGI animation should take this ball and run with it.
I can picture the little scroll of paper dancing around on the White House steps.
“I’m an Executive Order.
I was signed just to open the border.
Cause the Prez counts to ten
Then he pulls out his pen
Tells the Congress he’ll give them no quarter.”
That was rep Maxine Waters who got caught opening her mouth about socializing the oil and gas industry.
