Sali proposes suspending the law of gravity

New Idaho Congressman Bill Sali stood on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives yesterday and proposed a bill to reduce gravity by 10 percent to combat obesity – a bill he had all prepared, in his hand – saying that was no more unreasonable than the Democratic legislation to raise the minimum wage. Both, he said, defy "natural laws." It’s a rhetorical tactic Sali’s used before in the Idaho Legislature, and now has brought out on the national scene. The minimum wage bill passed, however.
