Oh! What A Tangled Web We Weave

When first we practice to deceive!¹

Who conceived of this affront to governance and logic. We are faced with the GOPression, which is on track to be worst then the Depression unless reasoned and competent action is taken, and taken quickly, and the choice of the powers that be to lead the rescue is the gang of four mediocrities.

Three lawyers and a Senate staffer, that is the employment history of this group prior to public office. None of them is on either the Senate committees on Banking or Finance, although three of the four are on Appropriations. Two Republicans, a Democrat, and an Independent, when the Democrats are in the majority? Maine, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Nebraska – are there no members from the South, Midwest, or West available? The single Democrat is 60th in Senate seniority, was no one else available?

The result they are discussing is a disaster. People should start looking for sturdy boxes to live in, because these people just don’t understand what is happening.

After the fold I have a couple of graphics that lay out the problem in terms even Senators should be able to understand.
