The American public can rest assured that "In God We Trust" is in fact the official motto of the United States.
The Republican-led House approved a resolution Tuesday night to reaffirm the slogan as the country's motto and encourage the public display of it in all public buildings, public schools and other government institutions.
The resolution, introduced by Rep. Randy Forbes, R-Va., was considered under an expedited floor procedure and passed in a 396-9 vote, gaining the two-thirds required for passage.
Excellent. Now we just sit back and wait for the jobs to create themselves. Thanks, House Republicans!
