  • Get serious and lead: End the budget mess

  • The spending (budget) and debit crisis can be solved by government leaders. Five people can solve these problems: Obama, Boehner, Pelosi, Reid and McConnell. If spending is more than revenues, the debt increases. Not rocket science.

    The spending (budget) and debit crisis can be solved by government leaders. Five people can solve these problems: Obama, Boehner, Pelosi, Reid and McConnell. If spending is more than revenues, the debt increases. Not rocket science.
    If these five cannot meet these two objectives, they should retire. All they will lose are fancy suites, free plane rides and egos. The leaders of our country, when signing the Declaration of Independence, stated “If we do not hang together most assuredly we will all hang separately.” All the U.S. citizens are asking is to solve these two problems, not start a new country as our forefathers did.
    These items should be for one year – not a few months or 10 years – and should be done each year. When these items are for a few months, the leaders say they are “Kicking the can down the road.” My questions is, “Whose can are they kicking?”
