A House Resolution That Makes Damn Good Sense!

While many, if not most in Washington D.C. were watching the primary election results yesterday the House was busy with important business... Passing a resolution in support of beer.

Representative Betsy Markey of Colorado sponsored House Resolution 1297 that supports "the goals and ideals of American Craft Beer Week."

Here is a resolution I am sure finding common ground and bipartisanship for was definitely not an issue!

Representative Markey went on to say this...

"We've got quite a number of microbreweries and entrepreneurs that are creating jobs, and we wanted to celebrate that this is a craft," Markey told POLITICO.

"I think beer has been a tradition since this country was founded," said Markey. "We wanted to celebrate entrepeneurship — and good beer!" 

Markey is obviously partial to brews from her home state of Colorado, but she won't claim a favorite.

"You can't just have one," said Markey. "It really depends on what mood you're in. Sometimes, I like a light beer — I might want a Skinny Dip — or otherwise prefer a heavier brew."

As I read this I thought... Would anybody vote against this? And if so why? I decided they wouldn't and for damn obvious and pleasant reasons!

"It does seem like a no brainer," said Markey.

From Politico Via: Memeorandum


  1. I'm willing to share a skinny dip with her.

    THAT shows you how much I can get behind this.

  2. LL - LOL, I am with you on that one as well.
