A late-night issue of The Report, brought to you by Brawndo. It’s got electrolytes!
Well eNation, it’s official! The hallowed halls of Congress are to no longer be called “Congress,” but by congressional opinion are to be now called “Teh House of Representin’,” and should be referred to as such. This comes just days after a call for “Moar fun” in the eUSA. Other terms that are acceptable are “THoR’,” “Teh House,” and “Das Haus.”
In reaction, many congressional representatives have begun to “represent” their states by describing their area codes other than the states themselves. When asked what state some congressmen “repped” from, the response from Illing Inc, “yo yo yo the 402 is checking in,” was absolutely unforgiving. Presidential Candidate himself Congressman “Scrabshady” Scrabman even commented, “I'm pouring some water for ma hommies in the 304.” Jewitt, Kyle321N, Gates Schellinger, and PrincessMedyPi all declined an interview.
Regardless of these situations in THoR’, the Economic Council is fighting away at a new tax plan to present to congress – or rather, Teh House. “It’s very difficult to estimate the spending habits of the citizens,” commented One Eye in an exclusive commentary. So far the Economic Council has fought to deal with three base structures: High VAT, Low Income; Low VAT, High Income; and a mediation of the two. Note that “low” is described as 8% or less and “high” is described at 14% or higher.
Many representatives, such as Former President Justinious McWalburgson III, have argued for low income and high VAT, giving the right of the paychecks back to the eAmerican people. Others have argued the opposite, that without a VAT at all prices will fall and will outweigh any loses that may occur with a higher income tax. Still, the argument remains and should have a presentation by sometime of next week.
Spain fought Portugal and won, victoriously. Fighting were not only Portuguese defenders, but PEACE GC also sent in their own “freedom fighters” and, although unconfirmed by The Report, an Armored Cavalry came in at the last minute and a tank fight occurred. There have also been reports that the Spanish took a two-hour nap to “allow” the Portuguese to “catch up.” When asked about this, a person dressed and using the same nick as William Shafer said, while boasting a wife-beater shirt, “It was for the lulz.” Obviously Spain loves to show their guns; and not the Q5 kind either.
Singapore, Malaysia, and Serbia have all been added to the game, and Serbia immediately complimented over a hundred new citizens. Singapore also grew substantially, though Malaysia lagged on the first day of their existence. Many eAmericans have expressed interest in moving to these new countries to help them, including Former Presidents Dover and McWalburgson III.
As to our own battle with Portugal, President Uncle Sam promised a battle at 18:00 eRep Time. He failed, miserably, by twenty minutes. Some commented that it was the longest twenty minutes on the planet. “I could have sworn I saw my new-painted walls flake off their paint,” commented Panther.
Jewitt himself called for an impeachment of the President. “This is unacceptable. If I am on time for once, shouldn’t our President at least be no more than five minutes late? I need five approvals, who has them?” Unfortunately for Jewitt, there were no congressmen willing to lend their approvals. He did, however, gain six approvals from non-legislative persons.
