    I see they approved a bill supporting the condemnation of white supremacists and sent it to Trump to sign.

    Three weeks after the incident and no mention of BLM, Antifa, etc.....

    Good work boys....now about that healthcare, taxes, etc.......

    I get emails every time the President signs a bill.... sounds like you'd be surprised to see how much garbage goes across the President's desk. Currently, he has to decide on whether or not he's going to give Bob Dole the Congressional Gold Medal.

    Probably a little pork stuffed in there in the form of a grant for $200k for a study on the gender identity issues of trees.

    Takes Trump a minute to sign it. How long does it take Congress to come up with the feel good fluff - write legislation - put it in the floor - go to the podium and bloviate about it - and then finally take a vote?

    You're spot on. What a waste of time and money.

    When the founding fathers created our Constitution and in Article 1 established the role and make up of our legislature; I suppose the founders did make an assumption that the majority of those elected would not be stupid.
