The Do-Nothing Party

“For the life of me, I do not understand how you can go to the trouble of campaigning, raising money, going to events, talking to people, coming to this town as a member of a party who allegedly stands for something ... and then do nothing about it. One thing: I want my Republican colleagues to give me one thing one that I can go campaign on and say we did. One!”

-- Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), on the House floor in November. “He got no answer,” says Jennifer Rubin in her op-ed “The GOP's blunders take their toll.” Sad part is it's not tolling hard enough for them. “Most Republicans voted against the overwhelmingly popular infrastructure bill. Now they routinely claim credit for it. Only occasionally do they get called out for hypocrisy,” Rubin writes. “As with infrastructure, Republicans have largely escaped blame for causing economic havoc thanks to Democratic votes for keeping the government open and avoiding a default on the debt.” The legit media is really to blame for this. It'll never get better as long as they pretend both sides are culpable, or ascribe blame to an entity called “Congress.”
