Viewpoints for Sunday, Dec. 30

The Republicans in the House of Representatives seem to be at odds with their own speaker, their own party and, based on the November election results, the majority of the electorate. Well, perhaps more accurately they seem to be at odds with everything and anything productive. Their failure to support even a fiscal “Plan B” authored by their own speaker may have been done as some showcase of solidarity to their “pledge,” but what it really showed us was their lack of respect for leadership, inability to compromise, allegiance to the rich and an overwhelming ability to accomplish absolutely nothing and be proud of themselves. Eventually all old, outdated, dilapidated structures are destroyed to make room for new construction, and who would have guessed the GOP would be swinging its own wrecking ball. At least they wished us Merry Christmas as the bricks left town.
