The current state of the GOP is nothing more than a pitiful mess – a heap of warm jello melting in the sun – spineless, pointless, and sloshing aimlessly to the floor. This is the fourth time in 2 years our elected “leaders” have sat down to make a serious effort to reduce spending, and everyone gives in and says “we’ll do it later.” The GOP, in a shameless ploy to appear “tough” on the free spending democrats, have tried to distract us with the “no pass no pay” provision. What a complete and utter joke. Their motives could not be more obvious and transparent. What is surprising to me is that so many on the right fall for these ploys time and time again, hook, line, and sinker.
