You elect clowns, you get a circus

The Republican delegation in the House of Representatives is full of clowns who have no real interest in governing. Their main goal is to weaken the federal government while funneling money to wealthy benefactors.

The Republican delegation in the House of Representatives is full of clowns who have no real interest in governing. Their goal is to weaken the federal government so it can do as little as possible to help citizens, thereby reducing the need to tax corporations and billionaires. Even the failure to find a speaker contributes to the perception that the federal government does not work. It’s all in service of funneling money to wealthy benefactors who want to avoid regulations, oversight, and taxes.
