After reading that we should realize that both parties are culpable for creating this mess. We can blame Obozo, true he is partially responsible but the onus is on them. No one twisted their arms to increase spending, or raise taxes. They can blame who the want but it is them who have the right to say no to special interest, to lobbyist and even the President all they have to do is say NO,NO,NO. But they won't because they want to line their pockets. They write laws affecting us but excluding them selves...The solution is simple IT IS UP TO US TO STOP IT BY VOTING THE ENTIRE BUNCH OUT.
