The Do Little Congress

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 7, 2017

         CONGRESS IS BACK IN WASHINGTON AND DEPENDING ON YOUR PERSPECTIVE THAT IS A GOOD OR BAD THING.

         STORIES ABOUND THAT THEY HAVE ONLY A LIMITED TIME TO DO MAJOR THINGS. NOW WHY IS THEIR TIME LIMITED? IT’S BECAUSE THEY LIMIT THEMSELVES. THEY’VE JUST HAD A SUMMER RECESS LONGER THAN MOST PEOPLE WITH JOBS AND NOW THEIR CALENDAR SHOWS ANOTHER BREAK COMING UP BEFORE THE END OF THE MONTH. THE EXCUSE IS A JEWISH HOLIDAY BUT THAT’S ONLY AN EXCUSE.

         ARGUMENTS BETWEEN THE PRESIDENT AND REPUBLICAN MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WON’T HELP PASS TAX REFORM, OR FIX WHAT’S WRONG WITH AN OBAMA-ERA POLICY KNOWN AS “DACA” WHICH DEFERS THE DEPORTATION OF CHILDREN OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. WATCH THE ACTIVISTS AND MEDIA TO ORGANIZE OVER THAT ONE.

         THEN THERE’S THE DEBT CEILING AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT NORTH KOREA. WE ELECT THESE PEOPLE. THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO WORK FOR US. THEY SHOULD BE SHAMED INTO STAYING IN TOWN UNTIL THEY GET THE JOB DONE WE ELECTED THEM TO DO.

         I’M CAL THOMAS.
