Congress source of all problems in ME, too!

Remember how moderate (i.e. non-Southern Republican and AFL-CIO-bankrolled rustbelt Democratic) senators are taking everything that might actually stimulate the economy and fight climate change out of the stimulus package and stuffing its fallen corpse with pork and tax cuts for Rockefellers, then putting Gingrich on the teevee to explain that the inverse is somehow true? Well, as M.J. Rosenberg explains, Congress is also responsible for the fact that Jews and Arabs are still killing each other, instead of creating amazing fusion dishes.

But a President cannot do the job alone. He needs the American people behind him, and he needs Congress. Unfortunately, Congress tends to view the Israeli-Palestinian conflict not so much as a problem but rather as a cash cow for fundraising. Democrats, Republicans, liberals and conservatives tend to come together as one when it comes to telling the pro-Israel community what it thinks we want to hear (and will reward).

He basically analyzes the Israeli election very thoroughly from an American perspective, highly recommended reading.

    Hopefully Congress will actually choose to open up a discussion about this. Now that they seem to have come to some sort of agreement on the stimulus package, they should be able to move on to issues like this.

    I saw that the Friends of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is asking people to give their opinion on the most important thing for Congress to do next. Then they are going to focus their efforts on getting Congress to accomplish what we actually want them to do.

    What do you think Congress should do? Should they work to take a more active role in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict? Should they try to reform laws related to the international community? Or should they focus their efforts on completely different areas? Make sure to add your opinion so Congress can know what we want them to do next –
