WHY IS OUR national government unable (unwilling) to tackle the major financial issues that are about to overwhelm the country? What crisis will it take for our dysfunctional Congress and White House to experience before a compromise is reached to restore confidence in the people?
Bruce Bartlett, a former senior policy adviser for several previous administrations, has some thoughts on this topic. I think they are worth considering. The political leaders of both parties are equally responsible for the Washington stalemate and until the current climate changes, Congress and the White House will be content to simply “kick the can down the road.”
