Joyce has introduced the GRINCH Act which would prohibit federal funds from going to book publishers who “censor” their works because Joyce believes this violates the First Amendment. He may not be a household name, but he is certainly in the running for dumbest member of Congress, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.
