What’s missing from this statement in today’s Boston Globe article on the death of the omnibus spending bill in the “world’s greatest deliberative body?” (Sic and sick):
The House and Senate typically spend months on the 12 annual spending bills, but Democrats didn’t bring even a single one to the Senate floor this year, an unprecedented collapse of an appropriations process.
To be fair, the article did get to the matter of Republican duplicity and lack of honor on this one bill further in the piece…but the final clause above encapsulates for me the failure of both the media and the Democratic party to get one crucial truth across. The Republicans do not belong to a governing party. They are traitors to the United States, in that they always place faction above country.
GOPago Delaenda Est.
