This story is a perfect example of why everyone hates Congress.

The senate tried to pass a bill funding research and prevention of the Zika Virus. Democrats blocked it and fully intend to blame the GOP for any spread of the virus.

The Democratic Party is apparently taking cues from progressive campus protesters now. In a move reminiscent of a safe space at Mizzou, congressional proponents of gun control staged a sit-in on the House floor yesterday.

The irony is that these aging, 1960’s obsessed hipsters disguised as elected officials were actually protesting civil...

After Congressman Paul Ryan became Speaker of the House, we remarked that he “may surprise us.”
