This past week Republican members of Congress held a "strategy" meeting in Williamsburg, Va. They have formulated a great plan to put the focus of the fiscal debates "back on the Democrats". Here's the "plan". They're going to give the Senate three months to pass a budget. And if they don't pass a budget, their paychecks will be withheld after that deadline.
Hmmm? The Senate hasn't past a budget since April 29, 2009. It doesn't sound too promising to me. But wait. If you withhold their paychecks if they don't pass a budget, that'll get um where it hurts. Yea, right. The average net worth of a U.S. Senator is somewhere in the neighborhood of $14,000,000.
Hey Mr. Boehner, what were you and your buddies smoking up there in Williamsburg?
