Dogma Will Always Lead to Misguided Priorities
Let's get our priorities straight! While work to improve the job market and other reforms languish, ideologues waste time and taxpayers money on issues they hope will yield political gains for their parties. Eric Cantor, GOP Majority Leader of the House of Representatives has put forth 37 votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare"). Each of these votes cost taxpayers $2,000,000! The Democrats are not immune from playing politics. President Obama's and Attorney General Holder's overreach of the First Amendment is cause for great concern.
Dana Milbank's piece in the Washington Post is illuminating in this regard. America is not best served when politics takes precedence over governance! Dogma will always lead to misguided priorities.
