WASHINGTON, D.C. – How much American history do you know? I might be more than Sheila Jackson Lee.
The Houston area Congresswoman and Yale graduate proved that on the Floor of the House of Representatives in a speech saying:
“For giving us the opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted 400 years operating under a constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not.”
Did she say 400 years? Hey Sheila, we’re not sure whose constitution you’re rattling on about but the United States Constitution is 227-years-old.
It was adopted in 1787, ratified in 1788 and enacted in 1789. Don’t worry Sheila you’re not the only one who’s fuzzy on American history. We asked a few Houstonians how old the Constitution is. Their answers: “200”, “Almost 300” and “573.” One guy even asked, “Who’s Sheila Jackson Lee?”
John Logan knows who Sheila Jackson Lee is, “I actually just wrote her an email yesterday. My healthcare costs going up and why she’s not on TV every day denouncing – I don’t know, whatever the healthcare stuff is? I’m a young professional getting hammered by a bunch of stuff and nobody seems to care about us.”
Like every other elected official, if Congresswoman Lee doesn’t listen to her constituents she may one day be history.
