Congress still refuses to eat its policy spinach, following the path of least resistance in making easy choices rather than tough ones.
Just like their House colleagues, it seems GOP senators are incapable of putting out a clean and principled bill. Every good idea they present is usually followed by a couple of bad ones.
Although the bill enjoys support across demographic and party lines it’s also highly unlikely to ever reach the Senate floor for a vote. That should change.
The way Republican leaders corralled the votes previously left them unable to oppose the president’s agreement to suspend the debt ceiling and fund the government for three months.
Without a clear vision of the final legislation and an agreement from 50 Republican senators to preserve that vision on the Senate floor, proceeding to the bill will result in a policy morass.
Paul Ryan is going to be your new Speaker of the House. Here’s why he should disrupt the way Congress works.
