112th Congress: the Worst Congress EVER
And the fun is only half over. This article gives eight reasons the 112th Congress is the most Godawful pitiful collection of oxygen-wasting whores EVER.
As the article says, they were designated the Worst Congress Ever last July, and they haven’t shown any improvement since then. In October, the public gave Congress a 9% approval rating. That’s 7 percentage points lower than BP’s approval rating at the height of the Gulf oil spill.
And how did the 112th Congress earn the title of Worst Congress Ever?
By ignoring the country’s most pressing problems so they could waste time and tax dollars with: reading the entire Constitution on the House floor; and affirming “In God We Trust” as America’s national motto. Nero fiddled while Rome burned.
They brought the country to its first credit downgrade by wallowing and dithering and stalling and bickering over the debt ceiling until the last second — barely averting America’s first-ever credit default.
And how about that Super Committee? When they failed to reach an agreement, they KNEW that this failure would trigger certain automatic budget cuts. But instead of accepting their self-created consequences, they wailed “oohhh, you’re not really going to cut the defense budget, are you??? NOOO!!!” Sort of like a high school student who willingly fails to turn in a term paper, and then sobs “Oh, you’re not really going to give me an F, are you???”
Oh, and they ruled that pizza is a vegetable. Careful now. About thirty years ago, somebody declared Ketchup to be a vegetable. A few years later, that person himself became a vegetable.
Then again, if House Republicans all turned into vegetables — how could we tell?
