Congress returns to Washington this week with the Republican majorities in both chambers at risk and GOP leaders planning to turn the House and Senate into battlegrounds over which political party can best protect the country from terrorists and other security threats... No budget plan for 2007 will be completed. Promised relief for seniors struggling with their Medicare prescription-drug plans will have to wait. And up to eight of the 11 bills needed to fund the government will not be passed before the November elections.
Is there any greater thing for lovers of small-government these days than reports that Congress is not passing budgets and resolutions? That they are instead wasting time on stupid shit?
If it were up to me Congress would waste much more time on inconsequential political posturing and much less time drafting legislation.
