We need someone in Congress who will stand up and say, ok, we gave you the tax increases, now we're going to hold your proverbial feet to the fire and demand government downsizing, entitlement reform and the myriad of other fiscally responsible actions that a government can do. Of all people, it's looking like Sen. Mitch McConnell is leading this charge. We have got to have leaders who will present themselves as willing to be more accountable than current leadership.
I just don't get it. There are many many smart people in Congress and many smart voters, and
rich ones also who know how to make and spend and budget money. Yet, when the
National Debt skyrockets to 16 trillion dollars, they just ignore the ramifications of that much overspending.
These same people would not carry so much personal debt in their own households nor in their own
businesses. Why are they allowing this to happen to our country?
