House Republicans so desperately want HR 1 (a budget bill with $61 billion in spending cuts, which went to the Senate and was voted down 56 to 44) that they are going to try and suspend the Constitution on Friday to make it law.
That's right. They're going to try and suspend the Constitution.
Did your head just explode? Thought so.
Oh, and the funny thing? The Senate would have to willingly cede its constitutional authority for such a maneuver to work. Yeah, that'll happen.
I guess, in the end, the joke's on them. Or us. Yeah, probably us.
