Railing against the do-nothing government you helped grind to a halt is nothing new here in Washington.
Now we have memes that help commemorate the hypocrisy.
This non sequitur jab (attributed to a right-leaning website) at 44 is rhetorical junk, since money was never really the issue in either case: both battles are about political will.
The former was stymied by lack of agreement on military action, while the latter is the unforeseen — and now deeply lamented — consequence of the scorched earth policy both parties have adopted regarding anything to the do with the polarizing Affordable Care Act.
But that didn’t stop pols, such as Rep. Bill Cassidy, R-La., from trying to score points with it over the weekend.
“No, Mr. Cassidy, it’s not a good point. It’s not even remotely the same thing and goes to show either how much he doesn’t know or how much he just wants to push hate during a shutdown,” an HOH tipster vented via email.
Good news, angry reader.
