The "smokin" House has passed things like the Ryan budget plan, which makes harmful cuts in necessary social services -- and pretty much ends Medicare as we know it -- while basically keeping its hands off of the bloated and wasteful Pentagon budget and totally avoiding the practical reality of having to also raise some taxes. I say Boehner and his folks should drink more wine, smoke more cigs, and follow the Senate's minimalist approach example. Just because the House has been busy doesn't mean they've been doing good.

  • National Debt: Does not matter anymore
    The federal debt continues to grow with increases of billions each day. This does not seem to concern either political party, particularly in this time of pandemic mania. Perhaps, it is ll necessary but at some point there will be consequences that deserve some thought.

  • Political Report Card
    Now that Mr. Trump and has been in office almost three years , here are the latest grades for our government,

    Administration: The multiple missteps, the erratic behavior of Mr. Trump plus the self-inflected political blunders continue. He has likely doomed his re-election. Mr Trump needs to stop being so sensitive and feeling slighted at every move and get off the stupid twitter. Grade: D plus.

    Senate: Republicans are in the drivers seat have failed to move the needle on almost everything except judicial nominations. Venom and obstruction from the liberals is not productive for the country Grade: Grade D

    House: The House is a partisan and nasty pit Grade : Grade F
