The only reason I am supporting this bs is because our Congress is deadlocked by an artificially antagonistic opposition based on ideology and is incapable of properly doing the business We the People elected them to do. In January of 2018, if the Democrats can keep their heads on straight, we will begin the very early stages of a progressive agenda that may, if they do it right, lay the groundwork for a more balanced power within the legislative branch, and a resulting improved balance of power between the legislative and executive branches or our government. Newly elected House members are numerous enough to bring pressure to bear on the aging and corporate financed liberal Party majority, and I see the potential for coalescing the Party behind a more progressive agenda that meets the needs of a majority of the American people. Until the balance of power between and within the Branches of government has been restored, we will continue to see these stupid budget games being played. Once the balance has been restored, We the People will need to make a concerted effort to demand a cessation of the tactic of using the threat of interfering in the annual federal budget approval mechanism for political gains. We can do this. We WILL do this.
