Love it or loathe it, it is nice to finally see the gubmint get close to getting something done.
Have to disagree. I would have been much happier with nothing getting done. Signing a bill just to "do something" usually does not end well, no matter which side is pushing it through.
Rhetorical overstatement, but not by much. The 80's were a pretty miserable time culturally speaking,
As noted, all about perspective I guess.
