Your Tax Dollars At Work

Jayson at Polipundit has a good summary of what this year's Congress actually accomplished. A lot more than I thought. And a quick look at what the future holds:

If the (non-voting) conservative “base” manages to avoid defeating its own causes in Nov. 2006 (always an open question), the GOP will be able to deliver another 10-15 reform measures next Congress, along with two additional sets of conservative appeals jurists. Regarding the latter point, keep in mind conservatives already own the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals (which contains Texas), the 11th Circuit (Florida), and the D.C. Circuit (the second-most-important federal court in the nation). Conservatives also dominate five other appeals courts: the 4th Circuit (Virginia and North Carolina), the 6th Circuit (Ohio and Michigan), the 7th Circuit (Illinois), the 8th Circuit (the Mid-West), and the 10th Circuit (the Mountain States).
If the Democrats are intent on running a campaign founded on "Put us in charge and we'll impeach Bush" this year then we've got a lot to look forward to.
