Congratulations to the distinguished, great statesmen (and women) of the U.S. House! By an overwhelming margin of 285-144, they have passed a temporary hike in the debt limit, assuring us that this latest stopgap measure will afford the body the time it needs to fulfill its responsibilities of permanently dealing with the nation’s economy: passing a budget dor the first time in four years and determining the appropriate levels of spending and taxation. This time they mean it, they REALLY mean it, so we should be conciliatory and forgiving that there has not been time in recent years for the members to do their jobs.
I am sure that all House members will now harmoniously come together to work for the American people, to show us the comity and bipartisan cooperation for which the body is so well known. What a great legislative branch we enjoy in the USA!
