Middle Age Ramblings

Where I Share My Thoughts On This Journey Called Life

The Great Debt Fiasco

I have watched the events in Washington about the debt ceiling with mixed emotions. The way this has been handled speaks volumes about what’s wrong in Washington. We have a President that is trying to turn this country into a European style socialists republic, and a divided Congress that can’t seem to find a way to make a decision. Don’t get me wrong, this is not easy to fix, but to do nothing is wrong as well.

Keep in mind, I don’t have the answers that will fix this problem. If I did I wouldn’t be working for a living. If you’ve read my column about the price of gasoline, you know that I think we need to vote the whole bunch out of office and start over. I am neither Democrat or Republican. I am an American who is sick and tired of the way Washington messes me and all the other middle-income American over.

When I think about this problem as logically as I can, I see that there are sacrifices that need to be made. There is going to have to be some cuts in entitlement programs. There also may have to be some changes in the tax code to increase revenues. I cannot afford to pay any more taxes, however, we as a nation have allowed our leaders to do this to us, and we will now reap as a nation what we have sown.

That’s my rant for the day. What’s your opinion?
