    expense to have a Congress. We certainly don't get our money's worth from them. They are virtually dysfunctional. Secret holds. Fake filibusters. "Super" committees. Direct negotiations between the President and the Speaker of the House. All of these are because they won't do their damn jobs. AND, this doesn't even begin to touch the issues of pandering to lobbyists and special interests, punitive "investigations," sneaking pork into other legislation, the idiotic response of many to science. Yes, I think "our side" is better than the other side, but not enough.
