Happy Festivus, everyone!
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul kicks off today’s festivities:
"I've got a lot of problems with you people, and now you're going to hear about it!" (Frank Costanza, 1997).
Airing of Grievances begins...
In Washington, "bipartisan deal" is a synonym for "increasing our debt"
One party seems to like some of the Bill of Rights. The other party, some more. Few willing to stand up for the whole thing.
Let's move on to the Senate. If you want more bipartisan cooperation, talk more not less.
Minor grievance: I can never remember when to move my car for DC street cleaning.
Today has another significance besides a Festivus: It is the 100th anniversary of the Federal Reserve.
So now some Fed Grievances.
Fed policies make you poorer, and hurt the poor and middle class the most. Ridiculous monetary policies increase the costs of goods.
In response to some of your tweets, there will be no feats of strength, and I have no plans to end Festivus by wrestling with Senator Reid.
Grievance with my otherwise wonderful staff: leave the turtleneck alone. I like it and so do viewers.
The Senate cafeteria never has burgoo.
I still have a lot more problems with you people (Washington). I will be back later with more.
