For the third time, the House of Representatives—this time with zero Democrat votes—sent a bill to the Senate to deal with the budget and the debt ceiling. And for the third time, the Senate has turned it down. President Obama gave another speech—this is getting really old—talking about how the Republicans need to learn how to compromise. He’s had three options from Republicans, the last one pretty close to what was almost agreed to last weekend, except for the provision requiring the Congress to send a balanced budget amendment to the states for their consideration. Democrats always say they’re in favor of a balanced budget until they have to vote for one. Compromise? How is that defined by our president?
And just what would be his way, if he could get it?
Foolishness. Utter foolishness.
