The Return of the Schizophrenic Congress
The "Cromnibus" bill funding the government for FY15 is being worked on today. As usual with big pieces of appropriations, there's some policy riders included, often riders which reverse or bar the agencies from doing what legislation says they should. And there's cuts for the IRS, making it harder to enforce tax laws. I'd call those Republicans who vote for the bill hypocrites if they also criticized Obama for failing to enforce immigration laws, but once we start identifying hypocrisy among Washington politicians we embark on a never-ending task.
