Once upon a time in America there was a bill...

and the story of that bill was told in car­toon form…

In those mag­i­cal days con­gress worked in the fol­low­ing ways.

The House would pass a bill.

If the sen­ate didn’t like the house bill they would pass a bill of their own.

And then the two bills would go to a con­fer­ence com­mit­tee and the details worked out.

And then when both sides had passed bills they would work out the differences.

Now things have changed:

The House has passed a bud­get, the house has passed a tax bill, they have passed bills tack­ling the big issues of America.

The Sen­ate has not.

They have dodged the big issues, they have punted, the one great­est delib­er­a­tive body in the world has made a delib­er­ate deci­sion to avoid any deci­sion that might affect their elec­toral futures and the coun­try be damned.

The response to this inac­tion? Nobody in the media has chal­lenged the Sen­ate, nobody has pres­sured the sen­ate, until the last few days nobody has called on the Sen­ate to do anything.

And because the rest of Amer­ica is too busy sim­ply try­ing to sur­vive when the media has blamed the house for inac­tion and ignored the sen­ate the coun­try has ignored them too and not pres­sured them to do anything.

Per­haps if the media called the Sen­ate on this the peo­ple would have pres­sured them and we would have a bill in con­fer­ence com­mit­tee already.

But that is not to be, after all if the Amer­i­can Pub­lic is unwill­ing to pun­ish the Sen­ate for inac­tion there is no rea­son for action to take place.

And we once again get the gov­ern­ment and the con­se­quences we deserve.

The End.

and the story of that bill was told in cartoon form…

In those magical days congress worked in the following ways.

The House would pass a bill.

If the senate didn’t like the house bill they would pass a bill of their own.

And then the two bills would go to a conference committee and the details worked out.

And then when both sides had passed bills they would work out the differences.

Now things have changed:

The House has passed a budget, the house has passed a tax bill, they have passed bills tackling the big issues of America.

The Senate has not.

They have dodged the big issues, they have punted, the one greatest deliberative body in the world has made a deliberate decision to avoid any decision that might affect their electoral futures and the country be damned.

The response to this inaction? Nobody in the media has challenged the Senate, nobody has pressured the senate, until the last few days nobody has called on the Senate to do anything.

And because the rest of America is too busy simply trying to survive when the media has blamed the house for inaction and ignored the senate the country has ignored them too and not pressured them to do anything.

Perhaps if the media called the Senate on this the people would have pressured them and we would have a bill in conference committee already.

But that is not to be, after all if the American Public is unwilling to punish the Senate for inaction there is no reason for action to take place.

And we once again get the government and the consequences we deserve.

The End.

Update: Still $525 short on the emergency Bleg, any help would be appreciated
