America has got a lot of problems. We have absolutely no leadership or representation coming out of Washington.
We are in total disarray!
By operating without a budget for 5 years now, for most it is easy to see how we got to this point.
We are at the precipice. We are warned by the biggest credit rating agencies to get a grip or we face huge downgrades.
Ronald Reagan said, “Yes, deficits are a problem. I’ve been saying so for more than a quarter of a century now. But the problem is not the size of the deficit, it’s the size of government’s claim on our economy.”
There is no denying that the reach of the government is far removed from the intent of the Founding Fathers. Our economy is extremely burdened by the government’s claim.
No more proof is needed when you look at the headlines of the past week or more.
Washington is shutdown and they can’t decide on how to fund it. Half of them are standing on getting rid of Obamacare, while the other half wants it fully funded.
But, it’s the behind closed doors that really show the lack of leadership this nation really needs.
Republican leaders stand firm as Obama seemingly continues to stomp his feet like some child throwing a temper tantrum.
So, what gives? What will it take?
If there is no deal passed today, Washington will ‘default’ for the first time. Even though they have cash reserves to get them to the end of the month, where is the leadership that will right this wrong?
