To say that the American people are fed up with the lack of bi-partisan cooperation in Congress is a gross understatement. Most folks outside of Washington, D.C., can’t comprehend how things work – or fail to work – in our Nation’s Capitol. According to all polling, the public continues to have a very poor opinion of Congress. Ratings are at an all time low, and if things don’t change, they will get lower.
This issue went to the printer two days before the March 1st sequestration deadline. Hopefully, members of Congress came to their senses and avoided the disastrous consequences that the massive cuts would bring about if they failed to act. By the time this issue is received, the deadline will have passed. I shudder to think what will happen to our nation’s economy and to national security if Congress fails to avoid sequestration.
In addition to the sequester issue, Congress has its plate full and will be very busy when the members come back from recess. Such issues as gun control, immigration reform, the passage of budgets, deficit reduction, and dealing with our national debt await them. Hopefully, the time spent at home by members of the House and Senate was good for all concerned. If they listened, I suspect things will improve in the halls of Congress when they return to Washington.
