Well blow me down and call me shorty! There are some senators that are actually doing something good for the american people that has nothing to do with special interests. And they are doing it with bipartisan appeal. BRAVO!
Senators Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, Mike Crapo of Idaho, Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, Kent Conrad of North Dakota, Mark Warner of Virginia and Dick Durbin of Illinois have been working behind the scenes to craft a true bipartisan solution to the nations debt problem.
They are trying to bring forth a proposal to reign in the national debt which as of this writing is at 14.3 Trillion dollars, yes pilgrim that’s TRILLION.
What is so different is that three of these gentlemen are Democrats and three are Republicans but they are working together instead of the trench warfare that has been the norm in D.C. since the last presidential election. I thought the Hatfields and the Mc Coy’s were having a silly fight until I saw the antics of the current congress.
It will be tough and there has to be some sacrifices in all aspects of our lives such as defense, health care safety net and Social Security. Some groups are going to squeal like Ned Beatty in Deliverance, some groups will spread misinformation like a publicist for Charlie Sheen.
I hope that when the proposal gets to D.C. that it is given a fair chance by all. We need to make sure we do not spiral into a financial morass that will drag the entire world economy into a recession or worse yet a depression.
