We really need to get our nation's lawmakers to spend time (and our taxpayer's money) on issues that are important to our country's welfare instead of wasting it on non-issues like this

"House lawmakers are gearing up for a vote as soon as next week on a bill aimed at forcing a national college-football playoff."

What are you saying? Even if they don't accomplish anything our health and tax money are safer when Congress is spending timeon something other than the "issues"
