Beyond Belief

Every time I think I can't be surprised by the stupidity of politicians, I'm surprised again. Why oh why does Eric Cantor, the Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, think that the House can make a law all by itself? There is absolutely no Constitutional mechanism by which that can happen. Any eighth-grader can tell him that. If this is his silver bullet to get a budget passed, someone should tell him he's shooting blanks. What next? Will he be spinning straw into gold to solve our budget problems?
