No one, on either side, has the guts to cut spending, because jobs will be lost. Granted, many of those jobs should never have been made, but no one wants to be thought of as a job-killer. So no one will make the hard decisions we all know are necessary. Blame the Democrats. Blame the Republicans. Blame whoever you want; does no good.
Write your ‘representatives’ about your thoughts; let them know you’re watching, and that you will vote according to their actions/inactions. Then make good on your promise. If we are all willing to do this, we MIGHT be able to effect the necessary changes. If we do not, status quo; nothing will be done in Congress, the President will get the blame, and we’ll be sitting here on GoComics calling each other names, and pointing out how poorly we spell.
