    Republicans fell for it and now they are being exposed as poor managers.

    Putting the blame for everything on the President has worn thin.

    Congress writes the laws and approves expenditures. The executive can only do what has been permitted and, btw, that was true for GWB, as well. Without the AUMF, the Pentagon couldn't have invaded Iraq and without Congressional approval the prison on Guantanamo couldn't have been built.
    Haggling over how much is to be collected or spent provides cover for never having to discuss what money is actually going for--at least not so the whole country knows.

    The sucklings have been suckered.

    We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
