Both parties are guilty of spending too much, and spending in places they shouldn’t be. Again, to stop this hemorrhaging would mean that jobs will be lost. Although you have to break some eggs to make an omelet, no one is willing to be the chef, because when you terminate worthless programs and people lose their jobs, Congressmen may lose theirs as well.
Our only hope is to make our “representatives”, those of both parties, understand that this current level of spending cannot continue, and that they were elected to make the tough choices that need making. If they are unwilling, time to vote for a replacement. It is up to us, because they won’t do it without our demanding it. All those who don’t communicate with their representatives about this are a part of the problem.
