I am so disgusted by Washington right now. First with the Democrats who, in the midst of this debt extension debate, argue that the Republicans need to compromise. It was only a year ago that the Democrats ran over Republicans over the health care vote. Now they act like the party of compromise?
The second thing that is really burning me up is the term “public service”. Being in politics or working in government, in ANY form short of the military, should not be called “public service”. If you get a paycheck it isn’t service.
Politicians act like they are in Washington to serve the people. They all know that they have to cut entitlements. We can’t continue to add more and more benefits to the population. They act like they agree but don’t do anything about it. They don’t even try to hid the fact that they operate differently in an election year.
Bad economic news was just released today. Apparently the first quarter numbers are being revised down from 1.9% growth to .4%. Get ready for Obama to blame it on businesses not taking his orders to hire.
