I Actually Find this Astonishing

October 14, 2011

I must not be as cynical as I thought.

Less than two years ago the Class Act was advertised to reduce the budget deficit by $70 billion. But now it turns out the law was so badly conceived the Obama administration can’t even pretend to implement it.

Conservatives got there pretty quickly by studying the provisions of the bill. Had they read the bill Liberals would have found the math confusing.

I wished I had written the line below:

“In other words, the United States Congress passed, and the president of the United States signed, a piece of politically convenient legislation that was essentially—that is, mathematically, logically—unworkable, and were either too foolish to realize it, or too cynical to care.”
