Clown Strategy

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?
