Time for Politicians in D.C. to Stiffen Their Spines

With all of the worldwide disasters in the headlines, it is no wonder that our critical domestic financial issues are going on with little notice.  The Republicans have real solutions to get the U.S. economy moving towards fiscal sustainability, but not enough members with the spine to push it through.  Wisconsin’s public workers showed what a public tantrum looks like.  Is that any reason for leadership not to speak out clearly about the need to make these tough changes?  If your child wants that candy or toy, but you do not have the money to pay for it, do you buy it with credit to keep the child from being sad?  The next time the child wants that candy or toy and you still do not have the money to pay for it, the child will still be sad.  Very likely, because you have gone along to get along, that child will not just be sad, that child will be mad!  That child will have an all out tantrum to get its way.  It’s time for politicians to face the music of what is their Constitutional duty to do.  Fix the economy by standing up for what is Constitutionally right!

Please enjoy this article which speaks to the noodles in DC, who are more worried about a national tantrum from public workers, than saving the United States of America from bankruptcy and irrelevancy.
