    that the GOP acts as if they won all three branches of Government even after losing ground in the one House they control.
    But as noted above, these guys aren't serious, they are angling for position for next session, trying to move the goalpost as far to the right as they can. And trying to make it look like the Dems are pushing us off the cliff.
    The Dems, meanwhile are trying to make sure that they don't get blamed for not DOING SOMETHING in the final days of this session.
    It's quite a kabuki performance.
    The sequestration doesn't effect SocSec or the Medis. The GOP is trying to drag those programs in. When it looked like they might get some traction, because Prominent Dems were rumbling about 'finding savings' in those programs, they upped the ante, adding Obamacare to it, just to make sure that no Dems would support their play.
    Stay tuned for a bill from the House that looks a lot like the Ryan Budget, again.
    And when that fails, they will be able to claim the Dems dropped the ball.
    It's bullsh!t, of course, but this is Canter and Boner, McChinless and Limpdyk.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
