Video of the day -- song of the Congressional Republicans

The only consistent thread running through the actions of the Republicans in Congress since 2008 is to oppose whatever Obama wants to do -- even if it's an idea first put forward by their own party, as much of the ACA was.  They seem to be taking their cue from Groucho Marx.  Whatever it is.....

They're not funny, though.

Update:  And yet now we owe a "thank you" to Paul Ryan for taking this very stance.  Every story on the "grand bargain" concept has stated that Democrats will not consider cuts to Social Security and Medicare unless taxes are on the table -- which implies they would consider cuts to those programs if Republicans make that concession.  So Ryan's refusal to bend here saves our own party from making a ghastly mistake.
