A few, quick bi-partisan thoughts about our current impasse...
I don't believe Congress as a whole will enact legislation that is in the best interests of the Average Joe if that legislation does not affect them. Perhaps their salaries should be suspended until an agreement is reached.
I am wondering for whom the Affordable Care Act is going to be affordable and why Congress has exempted themselves from it.
If our nation runs with all of these non-essential services suspended, do we really need them? Exactly what does non-essential mean?
And last, I wonder if the rest of the world is laughing at the US. If we can't run our own government, what makes us think we can take over other country's governments or tell them how to run theirs?
No matter what, I am glad to be an American!
