Doesn't anyone think that the current budget crisis being presently debated in the US Congress is a lot of nothing? It doesn't seem to be real tough to figure out what is happening: we don't have enough money to keep spending on services we can't afford. I'm just a simple guy whom can pretty plainly see the issue at hand. And yet, we keep getting the drama and denials by both sides that there is no compromising spirit from the other side.
It's sad. We are all going to end up poorer for this charade. Yeah, people are going to feel the pinch and there are some people whom are going to suffer when this all ends. Ultimately though, I think we have to get our financial house in order and take our medicine. We are going to probably feel a bit sicker before we get better. It's not going to be easy. But it is necessary.
