Hey, the news can only cover Trump - not US Congress, and heaven forbid, statehouses and courthouses.

Good thing Trump just fired all the ambassadors, now they'll be super safe from the decreased security congress would've provided them.

House Republicans revive obscure rule that allows them to slash the pay of individual federal workers to $1

Seems bad.

Party that spent eight years railing against deficits prepared to add trillions more to deficit:

Quote:
Some of the most conservative members of Congress say they are ready to vote for a budget that would — at least on paper — balloon the deficit to more than $1 trillion by the end of the decade, all for the sake of eventually repealing the Affordable Care Act.

In a dramatic reversal, many members of the hard-line House Freedom Caucus said Thursday they are prepared later this month to support a budget measure that would explode the deficit and increase the public debt to more than $29.1 trillion by 2026, figures contained in the budget resolution itself.


I predict they reverse their stance on this right around the first day a Democratic president is sworn in.

These are all really great ways to radicalize your populace. I say let 'em pass that [expletive].

How are the MO state congress and their lobbyists (that all are either Sen Roy Blunt's family and/or former GOP politicians) going to make any money if the US Congress does it all for them.

Come on [expletive], leave some meat on the bone. Jefferson City' will starve!
