Ah, you're a hard person to disagree with, Thomas. I've been unhappy with this:
For example, the last Congress's use of filibusters is historically unprecedented by a large margin. So was its brinkmanship around sequestation, the debt ceiling, and the like.
at least since the mid '90s.
On a somewhat different subject, I am mortified with some of riders that have been attached to some vital bills. It doesn't seem to make much difference which party controls which branch. Nevertheless, I continue to believe our president has been more abusive than most, at least in my lifetime.
