The great circus, Barnum and Baily, has closed. It’s okay. We have another, the one in The Capital Building. Unfortunately, it’s not just for entertainment. It is for real. One representative argues this. The other argues that. Before you know it, it takes over a year to pass some kind of tax bill, one worse than the one they are replacing.
There are some representatives and senators who have the idea that the higher the taxes are, the greater the revenues. That simply does not hold true. It assumes that the spending and working habits of the populous are unaffected by tax rates. It doesn’t take a genius to understand the hole in that logic.
Moreover, their decisions are warped by people with large sums of money, lobbyists and lawyers who do not represent the national good.
So we sit here and watch the circus. We would laugh, but it simply isn’t funny.
By the way, there was the promise to repeal Obama care. It is now almost one year later. Over half of my Social Security goes to pay the $940 a month for my wife. I wonder if Sen. McCain would like to help me pay the bill.
My observation is that they really don’t have our interest in mind. So they come up with all kinds of distractions. McCain insists on following the senate rules. Really? (Proof positive, not all military heroes make good senators)
