Time to Stop the Debt Charade

The Republicans need to pass a bill NOW that extends the tax cuts to ALL. That puts the cliff on the backs of the Dems. Then the Representatives need to send news releases to all their districts and constituents that they are trying to reduce taxes on everyone and encourage jobs. (Point out that 4% of $500,000 is a job for someone. And we all trust a small business to create a job more than government.) Then they should pass another bill that cuts every Department/agency/program/line item the amount that the GAO has found in the last two years to have waste and fraud. The Republicans get $300 billion in cuts and they can claim they only cut waste. If the Dems don't pass the bills then let the sequestration happen. Everyone can pay.

The crisis du jour in Washington now dominating the news, the so-called “fiscal cliff”, is but the latest in seemingly endless political crises that we shouldn’t be having.

We get two different kinds of problems in life. The real ones – the struggle to work and improve the quality of our lives – and the ones we bring on ourselves through poor behavior.

The more time we must deal with the latter type, the less time and energy we have to deal with life’s real problems and challenges.

The political crises which emanate from Washington are invariably problems...
