The interactions between the House and Senate have had an interesting reversal of late. It used to be that the Senate would say, in conference, "You've got to take our version of this bill, because this is all we can pass".
It was, more or less, a tacit admission that the Senate was fundamentally broken.
But now, the House can say the same thing. In fact, I think the House is a bit more broken than the Senate, right now. Just no interest in governing from the majority there. Seriously, how many times do we need to have Obamacare symbolically revoked?
Is it really any wonder that there hasn't been a budget passed in several years?
So where does that leave us, as a country? Heading downhill towards third-world status, unfortunately.
