Do-Nothing Congress

We've been through this before the last time there was a Democrat in the White House. Republicans are not so much shutting down government as trying to convert House of Representatives into a three-ring circus of meaningless hearings over pseudo scandals.

The Senate is hobbled by Republican insistence on filibustering every attempt by senators to accomplish anything. I anticipate a Rand Paul led speech-fest blocking a resolution supporting National Ice Cream Day (July 21).

No budgets. No judges confirmed. No nothing. Not quite anarchy perhaps we can call this new form of government Somnambulacy - sleepwalking government.
