Considering the intensity with which Iowa Republican Steve King defends innocent Americans whose only "crime" is to physically and psychologically abuse animals before pitting them against each other in a fighting pit and forcing them to rip each other to shreds in a fight to the death for the amusement of spectators, it's a miracle he has the wherewithal to do anything else besides opposing federal rules banning animal cruelty. And yet he does!
King's latest foray into policy-making is the consideration of a bill that would repeal everything Barack Obama has signed into law. Ev-er-y-thing. In other words, we are going to be renaming A LOT of post offices.
Though as ThinkProgress points out, such a broad repeal bill would also undo the extension of the Bush tax rates that Obama signed in 2010, defund the military, and most alarmingly, annul legislation "authorizing funding to honor and celebrate the centennial of Ronald Reagan's birth."
An even greater complication would arise if Obama signed the King bill repealing everything Obama has ever signed into law, thereby also repealing the repeal bill and launching us into a paradoxical loop of existential despair, which come to think of it, we already occupy whenever confronted with an idea emanating from Steve King.
