How's That transpareny In Washington D.C. Working Out For You??

Paul Ryan started off his term of Speaker of Dilapidated House of Representatives pretty poorly.
From the Washington Times:
Senate Republicans managed to wrangle enough of their troops to overcome a filibuster early Friday morning and pass the new budget deal, granting President Obama yet another debt holiday, busting the budget caps and boosting spending some $80 billion over the next two years.
Democrats, who are far more thrilled with the deal, did the heavy lifting, providing most of the votes as they won some $40 billion in new domestic spending in 2016 and 2017. They also forced the GOP to retreat on the hard-fought 2011 budget agreement that had helped bring deficits back under control.
Conservative Republicans were irate at their leaders and at defense hawks within the GOP who forced the deal by saying it was worth busting the caps in order to get the Pentagon more money at a time when the U.S. is fighting the war on terror.
Is it any wonder why Trump, Carson and Fiorina are doing so well in the polls?   The GOP leaders in the House and Senate are brain dead and clueless.  McConnell and Ryan/Boehner just gave the country the big middle finger and screw the country.
