Worst Congress Ever: The Postscript,
Kevin Drum at the Washington Monthly bags on the moral children that are our Republican congressmen who decided to leave a huge fiscal mess they were supposed to finish two months ago to the new incoming Democratic majority:
WASHINGTON - Republicans vacating the Capitol are dumping a big spring cleaning job on Democrats moving in. GOP leaders have opted to leave behind almost a half-trillion-dollar clutter of unfinished spending bills.
There also is no guarantee that Republicans will pass a multibillion-dollar measure to prevent a cut in fees to doctors treating Medicare patients.
The bulging workload that a Republican-led Congress was supposed to complete this year but is instead punting to 2007 promises to consume time and energy that Democrats had hoped to devote to their own agenda upon taking control of Congress in January for the first time in a dozen years.
Actually, I'm glad the Republicans are leaving the grown-up work to the grown-ups. They've already done a heckuva job fucking up this country for the past decade or so.
