Perhaps the Republic is Doomed

Nothing less than an account of how impossibly inept Congress really is.

I liked this quote:

"Is the nation waiting with bated breath for us to get to the Calvin Coolidge coin? No! Maybe we should call a halt to this whole thing."

I find the coin/dollar bill discussion interesting. Having used dollar and $2 coins for the past year, I can honestly say I don't really have a preference. The coins don't wear out as much, and they don't stuff your billfold, but they do get heavy and take up room in your coinpurse. They are a bit easier to feed into machines, too. I think what it boils down to is that Americans won't change unless they have to.
