This Week: Bush Vs. Congress

icon Download icon Download (h/t Heather)

The problem with the Republican platform of good government = smaller government is that it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Take our current system and obstruct the hell out of it and you can then point to it and say, "See how wasteful and inefficient it is?" And that's exactly what George Will does during the panel discussion on This Week with George Stephanopoulos, bragging about the Republican obstructionism but EJ Dionne points out that denying children healthcare isn't exactly something to brag about.
