Cicilline on the Congressional Budget Committee
As if we needed any further evidence of how messed up our Congress is, we certainly got that yesterday with the news that Congressman David Cicilline is being appointed to the House Budget Committee.
Wow. The very same David Cicilline who left Providence in “excellent financial condition” which I assume means only a $110M deficit.
All I’m left with is that the Democrats either believe that if he can reduce the national deficit to $110M, we’ll be in great shape. I’d completely agree with that. Or, they want to find out how to delay audits and keep the information from the public until it’s politically feasible to do so. Shouldn’t appointments to committees be based on the person’s strengths and where they can best help the country? Putting Cicilline on the Budget Committee is like dropping a non-swimmer in the middle of the ocean.
Maybe the apocalypse did happen after all.
