Lisa Murkowski Goes All In on #IceBucketChallenge

Bucket, schmucket.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski just became the daredevil philanthropist to beat after fearlessly plunging into icy Alaskan waters.

“I’m gonna challenge every single member of the United States Senate … Demonstrate your commitment to getting rid of ALS,” the Alaska Republican prodded fellow pols who have yet to participate in the viral fundraising campaign.

Murkowski has been calling attention to ALS for years, spreading the word about the crippling disease both in D.C. and around Alaska.

    Actually, my favorite line was her challenge to all Senators to “go soak your head”. I applaud the effort to end ALS and do not want to belittle this cause, but that line could also be used for so many other instances.

    I have a challenge to the Members of the United States Senate: Put all your efforts into bringing back the jobs. Stop over regulating and give this country some room to breathe. And stop placing illegal aliens, children, MS 13 gang members, felons, the whole shebang, ahead of the people of the United States of America.

    NO AMNESTY, EVER, if you broke the law to come to this country. You must go home and do it legally.

    ENFORCE our immigration laws. Place a limit on the number of foreign worker visas until ALL AMERICANS are working again, at FULL TIME JOBS.

    Remove the mandates from Obamacare. If it is going to stand, allow it to stand on its own. If it cannot, it needs to go.

    Do away with the IRS and give us a flat tax. Federal bureaucrats must NEVER be allowed to bully the American people at the whim of another administration, EVER.

    And DON’T EVER allow a President of the United States to use Executive Orders to change the laws of this country, under any circumstance.
