It's Time...


by Dave Cottrell

It's time for Congress and the Senate to start working together.  If they continue to stand toe to toe and nose to nose like the the Zax of Dr. Suess fame (with apologies...):
"The day after election day,One day, making tracks
In the prairie of Political Prats,
Came a North-Going Republican Congressman
And a South-Going Democrat Senator
And it happened that both of them came to a place
Where they bumped. There they stood.
Toe to toe. Face to face.
Well…
Of course the rest of the world didn’t stand still. The world grew.
In a couple of years, the Tea Party came through
And they built right over those two stubborn Hacks
And left them there, standing un-budgeted in their tracks."

Yes, folks, the world is NOT going to stand still simply because the fools in the House and the Senate can't get along.  If the Senate won't budge and keeps saying it's Congress' fault and Congress won't budge and says it's the Senate's fault, they will both fall over that fiscal cliff whose edge they are standing on, and the world will go on.

If BOTH parties don't set aside their differences and work together, it won't matter who is in the White House any more.  All those beautiful, promised social programs, including the new health care program, will be stopped in their track, and many existing ones will be cut, AUTOMATICALLY.

Furthermore, they won't come back for a very long time... economists figure it will take about eight years to recover... but at least, the economy will be strong when it does recover, and these lunatics that are bickering with each other, right now, will be gone.

What a crazy, messed up world!
