1.) I love how no politician has volunteered to reduce their income. If anything, a salary cut should be mandatory for all of the scumbag Congressmen and women.
2.) Partisanship once again rules supreme. The fact that these so-called leaders blatantly refuse to put aside their agendas for the betterment of this country just proves one thing: we've become subservient to the massive government, instead of the other way around. Not every aspect of your agenda will come to fruition, as Obama has said time and time again. Why people can't seem to grasp this concept is beyond me.
In the end, the American populace pays the price. What a bunch of incompetent babies we have elected.
