“Congress is deadlocked and can’t act.” I think that is the greatest blessing that could befall this country.
-Will Rogers (Weekly Article #59, January 27, 1924)
I just can’t understand how the leadership of the Republican party can blame the Democrats for not getting anything done this year. Come on Mitch, you guys control everything and still can’t accomplish the daily chores necessary to keep the country running. All you have managed to do so far is to take healthcare away from millions and pass a budget-busting tax cut for the wealthy. You personally need to take responsibility for your lack of leadership but of course, that will never happen. You are simply too much like the current leader of your party who refuses to EVER admit that he that he is not perfect or made a mistake. Even if obstruction is keeping you from passing legislation, can’t you remember you personally invented the current definition of obstruction just a few years ago during the first years of the Obama administration? A tit for tat is hell, isn’t it?
But in reality, as Will says, your inability to do anything is perhaps the greatest blessing that could befall us. Keep up the lack of work guys, at least until we can replace you with someone who will put people instead of party first.
