“12 Republicans Vote to Advance Budget Deal That Boosts Spending”
So it’s a one-party country, with certain players using show votes to keep the rabble confused. That way they can run for reelection as something other than what they actually are, and nobody’s the wiser. What of it?
That’s just political reality. The ways of DC. And you can’t fight reality. Better to submit to it for your own benefit than to stand there stupidly fighting its inevitability with nothing but your pointy little principles in hand. Pragmatism!
Now. Get your asses in line, Hobbits! And prepare to be governed. Good and hard.
