I’ve arrived at the conclusion that if the GOP was starving, and you gave them a hot bowl of soup and a spoon, they would immediately hold hearings and begin debating on what to do with the damn crackers!

America’s Steam Punk Congress

President Trump is feared by Democrat and Republican legislators alike because he is the man who pulled back the curtains to reveal that the “Great and Powerful Oz” is an entire Congress, that for the most part, is a collection of creaky, longevity-driven, steam punk legislators who’ve long ago run out of steam. The majority of whom have proven time and again, they are politically inept men and women. Re-election is their sole goal, so they cobble together massive, comprehensive constructs with enough throttles, levers, gauges, knobs and faucets attached to these bloated, hissing and wheezing bills to allow all the Members of Congress to lay a hand on at least one and claim that it is they who are in control of their unreadable, thousand page pile of deceitful, dysfunctional dreck.

A politician’s ‘tell’ is the word “comprehensive,” which is a congressional codeword meaning “legislation that has been so over-complicated and tied with a Gordian Knot,” that they tell you to re-elect them so they can properly solve the difficult problem with which they have Just presented you!

The GOP Senators failed abysmally to be pro-active regarding healthcare, after boasting to Americans for the past six years that they would immediately repeal and replace President Obama’s redolent Affordable Care Act, when they got control of Congress and had a Republican president ready and waiting to sign such an achievement.     

Sadly, I’ve arrived at the conclusion that if the GOP was starving, and you gave them a hot bowl of soup and a spoon, they would immediately hold hearings and begin debating on what to do with the damn crackers!
