Do Nothing Congress

Dana Mathewson

This isn't a Kurt Schlichter article but it sounds more than a little like his work. Basically it's saying "Why aren't you sending some juicy stuff up for the President to sign?"


This country is at a political crossroads that only comes around once or twice in a century. Congressional Republicans are totally blowing it.
Right now the GOP comfortably controls both chambers of Congress. In the Senate, they are even poised to pick up seats in next year’s elections — a nearly impossible feat for the party in power during midterm races.

Down Pennsylvania Ave., there is a Republican president in the White House who is starving for major legislative accomplishments. The guy would literally sign anything he could be convinced is good for the country.

The only opposition Republicans face in dramatically overhauling the bloated federal bureaucracy would come from the squeamish and fickle Supreme Court. But history has shown that Republicans always win in political showdowns with the federal courts.

Perhaps best of all for Republicans right now is that the deranged media is completely obsessed with all sorts of ridiculous things that nobody — and I mean NOBODY — cares about. Republicans could start ramming through big, serious legislation gutting the federal bureaucracy, and the media would not even know it. Unless they could somehow pin it on Russia.

So, Mr. Speaker, where is your bill to abolish the federal Department of Education? That should be done on Monday.

By Tuesday, start the process of abolishing the federal Department of Labor. Defund the entire Internal Revenue Service while you are at it.

Etc., etc
