This happens every year: Congress does nothing but pose and bicker. Therefore, Congress creates an “emergency” government shutdown situation. Much wailing and gnashing of teeth on camera. Suddenly, at the very last minute, Congress SAVES us all by passing an interim budget or some such baloney!

Mark Twain said, “Suppose you were an idiot. Suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.”
