A Lawyer’s Tips on Negotiating for Dummies and Congressional Republicans

Incorrect. Treasury Department figures show there was no Clinton surplus - the deficit increased every year. Bush inherited a recession. Thanks in part to his tax cuts the economy recovered and was doing fine. Then the Dims took over both houses of Congress. Eleven months later the recession began - no coincidence. Where was all the Dim resistance to the prescription program? Is Obamacare a Republican plot? Really?
Somewhere, there’s a whiplash lawyer who runs his law office out of a van down by the river who watches the congressional Republicans attempt to negotiate the fiscal cliff crisis and has to turn his head away. John Boehner and his inept coterie of GOP establishment cronies have made every mistake in the book. It’s professionally embarrassing.

Frankly, if these hacks were my associates, they’d be on a street corner with signs reading “Will litigate for food.”

Congress is famously full of lawyers, but what people don’t understand is that it is really full of bad lawyers. Good...
