House votes
to repeal Obamacare
snow on snow

Am I the only one who has lost count of how often the House of Representatives (or, more precisely, its Republican members) has done this? Ah, well, every "major political party" should have a hobby.

ah yes, the hobbies of the political parties, here in Scotland it's the Scottish National Party wanting to push for independence still, even though Scotland just voted decisively against independence in the recent referendum. Snow on snow indeed

Thanks, Daniele and M. Politicians and their antics make easy targets, but we should occasionally remind ourselves of the observation that, in a democracy, we tend to get the politicians we deserve.
