Another Diet Coke can being kicked down the road by our illustrious representatives. Apparently a huge transfer of wealth in the form of a freaking tax bill less than 1/3 of us really want is more important than actively working on solutions to the many problems facing this country. Do we kick the same can on 18 January or do the taxpayers have to spring for a new one? If you had taken your responsibility seriously, you would have had time to actually put some thought into any of these issues. But you were all too busy fighting (for or against) the stupid tax plan. What a disgrace. Exactly how are the surveillance program and CHIP connected? This is why nothing good comes out of Congress. Nobody wants to tackle the issues, they just want to hang out for the celebrations. FUND CHIP NOW! These are kids you are hurting.
