Hearts as cold as winter
It's a shame, a national shame, that the government, Executive and Congress have done absolutely nothing, in my humble opinion, to earn our trust. So deeply entrenched in partisan bickering that the whole community is facing collapse. We are in danger of destroying, or having destroyed for us, the whole idea of government for and by the people. It's gone. As an example when asked about work on tax reform House Speaker John Boehner said (and this is a direct quote) "Blah, blah, blah, blah".
Just one example of a house no longer standing.
Work on tax reform, immigration, trade and a host of other matters is dead in the water. A bill submitted to help veterans and help the overload of applications for VA assistance - dead! At the same time the Secretary of Defense says that down sizing the military is a good thing! Does anyone remember Pearl Harbor? No!
I would ask people to write their Congressional member - but why? It wouldn't get read anyway.
