While you were worrying about the Syria crisis, the U.S. Congress was doing the only thing it is truly great at doing: Nothing.
The country is now only a couple of weeks away from the latest self-imposed debt-ceiling fiasco, in which the Congress will threaten to refuse to allow the country to borrow enough money to pay its bills until the demands of specific political parties are met. According to Greg Valliere, the chief political strategist at Potomac Research Group, there's now a 25% chance that Congress will actually shut the government down. That's up from 10% one month ago.
But, once again, what we see in Washington is not a Congress of professionals who are putting the country's interests first. What we see is a Congress full of kindergarten kids who don't care about anyone's interests but their own.
