Maybe I am na´ve about how legislation works, despite some experience at the local government level.
There are people here who are working at the likes of SLAC, USGS, NASA, who are off work today due to what I view as an irresponsible bunch of clowns on Capitol Hill.
Back and forth, back and forth, between Congress and the Senate. And then the President has the pen. More back and forth if a veto is invoked.
This not a way to run anything, let alone a country.
