Common Ground

It is good to see that, on occasion, Congress can put aside partisan differences, bitter personal attacks and lunges at cuts for food stamps when they really want to get down to serious business. Indeed, all the rancor washed away for a time when Congress decided to give itself ... a raise.

The vote to give $3100 to each member of Congress was passed with a loving embrace. Then it was back to the business of taxcuts for the wealthy, many of whom are in Congress, and reductions in health care for the elderly and poor.
