Letter: Blame the lame duck Congress, not GOP

Mr. Boyle, you need to study American government, and at your age you should know how the Congress works. Let me explain. We have an election in November. The new Congress is elected but does not take over until the following January. So the boondoggle that was passed was passed by the lame duck Congress — that is what the old Congress is called. I’m surprised you did not know that.

The best part is that Sen. Harry (the bill is dead on arrival) Reid brought it up for a vote. I’m surprised you did not know the Democrats have a majority in the Senate, but because of the intelligence of the Americans who voted in November that won’t be the case in January.
