The Real Scandal on Capitol Hill

scandal-1

Well, it's shutdown day one. We can keep counting the minutes and hours, but there's little we can do until the insanity of the Republican party dies off as congressional switchboards light up, email in-boxes back up, and the people continue to chat up the scandal regarding the Affordable Care Act, aka, Obamacare.

SCANDALOUS? You mean SCANDAL the Emmy winning ABC TV show about a Washington woman who covertly "fixes" scandals?

Close. This is a parody by Funny or Die. At least they claim it's a parody. Truth can be funnier than fiction.

The Plot : Speaker of the House, John Boehner's fallen under the dastardly brain control of Senator Curz. The Speaker only has to present a clean CR bill to the full House and it'll pass. But he's been corrupted by the Tea Party terrorists and their lies to the public are instilling the masses with fear. The government has shut down. If something isn't done soon, jobs will be lost. Lives will be lost. Faith in our government will be lost.

This is Scandalous -- ACA. Stay with me here and watch:

When truth and parody are the same, it makes you wonder about our elected officials. With Cruz, Boehner, Lee, Rubio and Rand in office, doesn't it make you wonder if America  isn't being 'punked' and in need of Olivia Pope and crew?

Supercommittee Stalemate

This thing was designed to fail. Via Taegan-

 

"The supercommittee is struggling. After weeks of secret meetings, the 12-member deficit-cutting panel established under last summer's budget and debt deal appears no closer to a breakthrough than when talks began last month," the AP reports.

"While the panel members aren't doing much talking, other lawmakers, aides and lobbyists closely tracking the committee are increasingly skeptical, even pessimistic, that the panel will be able to meet its assigned goal of at least $1.2 trillion in deficit savings during the next 10 years."
