It is a "beaten horse" that the "Fiscally Conservative" Republican led Congress is fraud. But this week, in an amazing display of being out of contact with middle America (and reality), they have sunk to a new low.
A bill which is projected to cost $330 billion over ten years, is targeted to support a minimum wage increase (from $5.15 to $7.25), additional "relief" from the Paris Hilton Tax, and $38 billion in assorted other taxes targeted in a lame attempt to prove to businesses that they are supportive (R&D tax relief, etc.).
For reasons, which totally baffle me, the GOP will raise this for vote AGAIN after the summer vacation in September. Why? What would they possibly gain? It will NEVER pass. It has the professionalism of a 5th grade mock trial. It is everything a "fiscal conservative" would ever believe it. Not even spinable.
I guess they are so scared to have the three "I's" (Iran, Iraq, Inept) discussed - they would rather betray their ethics (see Beaten Horse #2).
