Truths I hold to be self-evident: the US federal government will continue to grow at a scary and stupid rate. And the best way to slow this growth is to have legislative and executive branches that spend their time fighting each other rather than agreeing all the time.
So the news that the US Congress is now largely opposed to the President’s aims is excellent news for those of us who believe that smaller government is better than bigger government.
It could be (and probably shall be) that the new intake of congresscritters that has been sent by Tea Party folk will turn out to be as pork hungry as the last lot (and the lot before that, and before that…) but I hope that they’ll manage a few months of good work before screwing everything else up…
Should be interesting at any rate.
