Our dysfunctional Congress…

Good evening, Netizens...


I think I might have an issue, our dysfunctional congress, where cartoonist David Horsey and most of the people reading it may agree.


Granted, I do not know for a fact that the event as depicted by Horsey actually ever occurred, but I do believe if it ever did, someone would be almost certain to threaten a filibuster to prevent such a bill from being introduced. After all, you have members of Congress who teeter to both the left and right; some even further than that. Do you think for a moment you could get them all to agree on a single issue?


Personally, between the Tea Party, the Conservative Right Wing Republicans, the Conservative Liberals and the leftist Liberals, I am surprised they are able to agree often enough to pass any legislation. Of course, my favorite axiom when it comes to members of Congress is, “we have the best possible Congress that money can buy.”


Of course, your thoughts on this may differ.
