"These guys could fuck up a baked potato"
-to borrow David Mamet's endlessly useful quote.

This is why the typo in the bill that cuts 39B from the budget is a disaster-

snip>
A decision against the constitutionality of the bill would send a ripple throughout the federal agencies that have begun to implement the law. A ruling in favor of any of the plaintiffs would affect the entire law, not just the provisions that give each plaintiff putative standing to sue, according to one constitutional scholar.

The appropriate judicial remedy is to strike the entire bill, George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley said.
...
Because the legislation is far-reaching and was adamantly opposed by many business and consumer groups, the potential for additional lawsuits is seemingly limitless.

Any person who is adversely affected by this legislation has the right to go to court, said Joan Claybrook, Public Citizens president.


Since even Republicans in Congress are frequently called "lawmakers", it's tempting to conclude that they've familiarized themselves with legalities like, oh I don't know, how laws work. If any one of these cases are accepted, all hell's going to break loose. Thank goodness for a stacked SCOTUS, huh?

Democrats were made to look dopey for attacking the error. Could it be that they just understood the ramifications of Republican screw-ups? Again.

Republicans are dangerously incompetent.
