Congress has been running around and installing child-safety locks on various aspects of the Presidency over the past few days. First, House Republicans announced they would not be sending an adjournment resolution to the Senate for the Memorial Day break.

This is closing the barn door after the horses are gone. Those horses need to be found and defunded.

Hence the reason why they are going through with this if you read the entire short article....so this doesn’t happen again. Call it as you may, but at least some are trying to keep it from happening again *rolls eyes*
