Opening Arguments

Dont just do something, stand there!

I'm not a huge John Boehner fan, but's certainly spot on here:

WASHINGTON -- House Speaker John Boehner says Congress "should not be judged on how many new laws we create" but on "how many laws ... we repeal."

[. . .]

The country already has "more laws than the administration ever could enforce," Boehner said.

Of course, that's assuming the adminstration wants to enforce all the laws, which we know is not the case. Every law repealed is a vote for clarity and a defeat for special interests. And if I can't have an active weed-control Congress, I'll take gridlock as my second-best option. A "do nothing" Congress? Two cheers. Hip, hip, but not quite hooray.
