When Congressman Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) won his GOP House primary in 2012 he said, “government needs to have a limited role in our lives.” Today he explains his concept of said government, which has 4 branches. Mullin proposes all four branches negotiate to reach an agreement on the shutdown crisis which his party initiated. The only thing missing in his genius-y plan is the fourth branch of government.
Mullin said on Tuesday,”This country isn’t ran [sic] by just one individual it’s ran [sic] by four branches, but three branches that are in control of this. As long as those three branches control it, then we all have to figure out how to negotiate. Not all of us is [sic] going to get 100% of what we want, but we should do what’s right.”
Congressional reporter for the New York Times, Jonathan Weisman, broke the news on Twitter.
Yes, this deep thinking Congressman has the shutdown all worked out. We just need to get all four branches of Government to work together.
Of course Twitter users are taking the piss out of him, which began with Chris Hayes.

No, no, no, we here at FreakOutNation are the Illuminati.
For the record: The branches of government include, the Legislative, the executive and the Judicial.
Yep, that’s four alright (wink wink). The Judicial branch has already weighed in when the SCOTUS deemed Obamacare to be Constitutional.
At a town hall meeting previously Mullin asked a constituent, “You’re talking about the birth certificate?” When the woman confirmed that’s what her question was about, Mullin replied that “we lost that argument November 6.”
He’s also said that raising the minimum wage would increase the cost of hamburgers to $20.00.
He’s a special kind of stupid and we pay him to reach out to that fourth branch of government that doesn’t exist. We are doomed.
