    I'm not distracted but I'm not keeping up with Congressional shenanigans either.  Maybe tomorrow I'll look at the news.

    Problem is the news media (all sides) are not covering it.

    To be frank, I've never had an affinity for politicians in general and the Democrats specifically because it seems that attempting to and sneaking things by the citizens is common practice. This bill is not only dishonest it may end up being hazardous for this economy. It seems that some Republicans are also in on it. The attempted destruction of this Republic continues and the media is a huge part of it.
