    As frustrated as you are with Washington, D.C. right now... Multiply it by 1,000 and you'll know how I feel. Washington is broke and broken. What passes for problem-solving in the United States Senate has shattered the trust of the American people. Our nation is facing monumental financial problems that the career politicians from both political parties created over many decades...and now they're busy squabbling and finger-pointing instead of recognizing our problems and buckling down to the hard work of fixing them. Clever sound bites take the place of ideas. Petty partisan attacks take the place of leadership. Brinkmanship -...

The United States cannot keep its credit rating unless more is done beyond the "imperfect deal" agreed to by the political leaders of both parties in Washington. Reflecting on what was done it is impossible not to conclude that the deal was the beginning of what will be a series of European-style austerity measures coming out of Washington as demanded by the creditors holding onto this nations multi-trillion dollar debt. We have made it into the same spot that Spain, Italy, Ireland, the United Kingdon, France and Greece are. The Age of...

The pushing through Congress of band aids like the bailouts and now the new legislation called the "Taxpayer Relief Act" will not stop the trillions of dollars in debt from continuing to expand until new band aids will be needed.

However, for them to be so afraid of him as too give into this farce of a deal is too much for me to accept. We all agree that America is no longer the country we...

The official estimate is that it will increase spending by at least $330...
