Supercommittee Schmoopercommittee! Why I’m Not At All Surprised They Failed

What a shocker. The supercommittee to end all supercomittees has announced that baring some miracle on par with Isabella Swan’s ability to carry a demon baby to term (shout out to all you Twilight fans) they will be unable to reach an agreement on how to solve our nations debt problem. Who would have thought? I mean if our immovably partisan Congress couldn’t reach a deal as a whole certainly breaking out 6 of the most fervent card carrying members of each party was sure to reach a deal. Come on. Sometimes I wonder if Congress thinks the rest of us are sipping the same BPA-Fracking Fluid-Medical Marijuana laced Kool Aid they are. This whole smoke and mirror show was doomed from the start as just another way for the members of our government to drop back seven and punt. Its no wonder their approval rating is so low.

But that’s not really what pisses me off. As part of fleecing the American people into letting this plan go forward, both parties agreed that if they failed, certain mandatory cuts would take place. Republicans have since announced that they plan to fight the defense cuts they agreed to from taking place. WTF. You mean to tell me you sold us a bill of goods to get this crap plan through initially and now you don’t want to take your own medicine. Ugh.

Where is the Occupy outrage about this? Someone needs to stand up and tell this group of idiots that is not OK to lie to your constituents. I think this is something everyone can agree to. I don’t care what party you’re from. You can’t possibly think that passing a law that says one thing and then refusing to comply with your own law is a good way to run this Government. Outrage.

I swear if that happens I’m going to Bed Bath and Beyond to stimulate the economy by buying some pots and pans and taking to the streets.
