A Do Nothing Congress? Well, There's the Horses

Congress has failed to come up with anything approaching a coherent energy policy and recently passed agriculture legislation that continues to pay farmers not to grow crops, even as food costs skyrocket. Regarding the impending entitlement crisis? Nothing. However, no one can accuse the legislative body of not setting out to accomplish anything constructive. Earlier this year, they grilled Roger Clemens over his alleged steroid use. Now, they are checking into drug use with regard to thoroughbreds.

Not since the 1850's has the country been afflicted with a Congress so out of step with the needs of the country. That is not a Republican or Democratic problem. It is a fundamental failure of leadership.
