With just 9 days left Congress and the President have come to stalemate. The President is not negotiating with Congress. Congress is not negotiating with the President.
With government imposed – mandatory, across the board federal budget cuts looming there are no negotiations taking place. Everyone on Capital Hill is digging their heels in. More and more, it is looking like a deal won’t be reached, and the cuts will take place having major implications on the lives of millions of Americans and thousands of businesses across the nation.
This is a serious situation. Many americans think that once again at the last moment some compromise will take place as wiser more mature heads prevail. However, there is something different going on this time. There are those in Congress, who are not going to negotiate, compromise or give in. They plan to take it all the way. As a matter of fact there are those in both houses who think that it would be best if we let it all fall apart. In other words, they want the financial fiber, the economic framework, the business system in the United States to come completely un-glued. They have said it. They have said it TV, they have said it on Radio, and in the papers. And because they have said it to the likes of Rush,Sean, and Bill, that means it’s right. Why? Because they, the Far Right, Radical Conservatives in both houses think that they are the only adults in the room. They, and only they have the answers to the woes of our economy.
If these people hold on to that little ounce of power, they will bring the United States of America to her knees. Uncle Sam, Abe Lincoln, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson will flip over in their graves. Why? Because everything about what made this country the greatest nation on the face of the earth will come apart. That is the mandate to compromise, negotiate, work together, and to resolve the crisis of the day, whatever it might be. But these clowns have lost touch with reality. They recognize that they have just enough members to hold the nation and all she stands for hostage. They want their agenda. They will take their agenda at any cost. They do not care about American families. they care only about theirs. They do not care about American children, they care only about theirs. They do not care about the infrastructure of this country. To get their agenda, they will without hesitation bring America to the brink!
That my friends, is why we are in the state we are in now. That is why we the People must step up to the plate and play our role in this latest challenge to democracy. It is time to write, call and demand that our congress, all of them, sit down at the table, and to negotiate a deal to bring about economic recovery.
There is no doubt that our nation, like other nations, is in serious financial and economic trouble. There is no doubt that the resolution to those problems will be painful. But, there is a resolve by the people, and a recognition by the people that the problems must be resolved. The only way to accomplish that is through compromise. Not holding The United states of America hostage.
That is my point of view. I look forward to your insights on this matter as well. Until then, have a great night, and pray for Gods blessing upon America!
