Congressman Barney Frank (D-MA).
What Do Prince and H.R. 1586 Have in Common?
Both have adopted highly unconventional names in their lifetimes. In Prince’s case, it was the adoption of a symbol to protest Warner Brothers’ artistic and financial control of his output.
Following suit, H.R. 1586 has adopted the name, the “______Act of____,” apparently because of the haste with which the Senate wanted to pass the bill last week.
It speaks volumes that the "most ethical Congress in history" is too busy to be bothered with little details like this. Shoot, they can't even be bothered to pass a budget, and that's something that's actually required by the Constitution.
But toss something way outside the bounds of that document at them—like propping up failed banks or federalizing the healthcare system—and they rush right in with nary a thought.
I would say that this is all the work you'd expect for the price, except this Congress is costing us trillions. So where's my money's worth?
