Woody Creek awake! There is some shit we won't eat!
Where are politicians who will tell us the truth instead of passing blame and pandering to be reelected?
S&P downgraded out credit rate because of a math error? Really! How about Congress publicly declaring that defaulting on the debt might be a good idea. What would you do if you were a lender and the person you were lending to declared that maybe they would not pay you back. I think you would charge them more, right?
We are running huge debt and we should cut expenses. But tax revenue is at historic lows and needs to be addressed as well. On top of this.... we still have a recession to dig our way out of; two wars that we financed with debt, a crumbling infrastructure, an education system that can’t even graduate 50% of the students in most large US cities. What a mess!
Politicians spend their time telling us who is to blame. Then they stake their own narrow turf. “No new taxes.” “Social Security is inviolate.” “We need deregulation. “Cut taxes." They sign pledges supporting narrow views that prevent them from compromise.
So...Woody Creatures...this is shit we won't eat! Write your Congress and Senate today. Come to the WC3 and express your views.. Above all: be willing to put yourself out there and demand that our leaders find common ground.
