One would think that Republicans would try harder to pass bills that would be good for the nation. Instead they have come to believe that they must pass terrible bills just to show that they are able to govern without an input from Democrats. The following quote from a Senate Republican from a red state (Louisiana) expresses their ignorance perfectly. This is the sad state of our political system in America.
“We’ve got to go pass this bill,” he added. “I’d rather drink weed killer than not pass this bill.”
