100 Words -- The Tyranny of the Minority

The Freedom Caucus in the House of Representatives has thirty-six members. That’s less than a fifth of the Republican House majority of 234. That’s not quite one-tenth of the 435 total members of the House. The House itself is half of the Congress. The Congress itself is but one-third of the government. So we have one-tenth of one-half of one-third of the government waking up every day thinking they should be setting the agenda. As one of my old sergeants would say, the Freedom Caucus is a pimple on the ass of Congress. Isn’t about time someone did the math?
