The debacle over raising the federal debt limit was yet another embarrassing, sad episode of dysfunctional politicians destroying the foundation of our government. The Republicans are protecting the rich, the Democrats protecting the poor and the middle class gets honored with paying for both.
One is reminded of the snake oil salesman promising anything to sell a deceptive product. Self-serving politicians spin the same lies to voters and, once elected, suffer from a total lack of conscience and memory loss.
Is this the vision our forefathers had for this country? I think not!
