No Time For Normal Politics

Rep. John Campbell (R-Newport Beach), whose e-newsletter is the best I've ever seen from a member of Congress (not that I always agree with it), doesn't like what happened when he was on sick leave:
I can't believe that in the middle of this huge economic crisis, the President is still pushing forward on socializing medicine and a cap-and-trade tax increase on energy to combat global warming. Both of these programs are enormously expensive. If the President confiscates the income of everyone over $100,000 per year per person, he still will not have enough money. I know that he is doing this to try and push through his agenda while his political capital is at its peak; this is a lesson from many of his predecessors, both Republican and Democrat. But these are not normal times and they do not warrant normal action.
