Scandals plaguing Washington - the media's enthralled.
They're more fun than news reporting budget talks have stalled.
Budgets don't get ratings; not the way that scandals do.
Don't they think their viewers would be angry if they knew?
Senator from Texas (of the Tea Party) Ted Cruz
Makes sure any reconciliation efforts lose.
Blocked it from Committee 'cause he says he doesn't trust
Any party and, therefore, the budget's gathered dust.
Even some Republicans, like Senator McCain,
Seem to understand this situation is insane.
Congress needs to do its job and get a budget deal
And news media should cover scandals that are real.
