The Federal Congress can be Bipartisan after all

Well, what do you know, the federal Congress can be bipartisan after all. The news came down yesterday that the Senate managed to pass a bipartisan criminal reform bill.

I’m not quite sure why anyone thinks this is a “win” for President Drumpf, since he had almost nothing to do with it. Besides, it still has to go back to the House before the President can sign it. But it proves that — oh my Gawd! — the Congress can actually get something done when there’s a will to do so.

There are some good and overdue reforms in there (although it could go a lot further) so let’s see if they actually manage not to screw it up before the Holidays are over. It might be a nice gift to those who have been unfairly incarcerated under circumstances that really do cry out for reform.

A disturbed citizen and skeptic. I should stop reading the newspaper. Or watching TV. I should turn off NPR and disconnect from the Internet. We’d all be better off.
