PS: If you want some dime store political advice from your friendly neighborhood Lawyer Girl, here it is: Congress, not the President, has the greatest impact on economic policy and social issues, if those are your bag. And when was the last time our current batch of incumbents voted to reduce spending, reform the tax code, or do anything other than engage in meaningless (and extremely offensive) grudge matches over the definition of "legitimate rape"?
That's right. Congress has not passed a substantive law in nearly a year.
They've approved things and reauthorized things, but that's it. The
last time Congress proposed a budget (and it was technically a FAKE
BUDGET) it was April TWO THOUSAND AND NINE.
that in perspective, since that time I've graduated from law school,
taken two bar exams, gotten a passport, moved three times, had three
different jobs, bought a house, bought a dog, built a patio, visited
three national parks, and posted on this here blog 770 times. Three of
my friends got married, nine of them had babies, six more moved away,
and I couldn't even begin to figure out how many others graduated from
college or grad school.
What have you done with the last three years and six months? I bet it's a lot.
Consider that when you're voting.
