Our economy is in the toilet right now for a number of reasons. One of the main reasons is that our elected officials continue to play politics with every issue which leads to grid lock, economic stagnation, and decline. One party can not allow the other party to succeed. I was listening to the radio today and Sean Hannity suggested that if the leaders in Israel are smart politically, they should not work with the current administration on the hopes that this would negatively impact the current administration and lead to a new administration. How is this constructive? But this is what politics is all about–each party wishes the other party in power fails so that they can then get into power. However, the it is the other party’s turn to stall things.
Today, with media coverage omnipresent, we have politicians caught on tape proclaiming out loud that their top goal is to stop the initiatives of the other side–not to turn the economy around, make the country safer, improve health care, repair highways, or reduce poverty.
If we don’t make any progress in addressing major issues that face us as a country and the world, each side is to blame as they both are sacrificing the financial futures of families in the name of political gain. We must either work together with the opposition or face a slow decline as unyielding, stubborn enemies.
