The strain is beginning to show on the faces of our congressional representatives and senators. And that is a good thing.
Considering the deadly serious nature of the issue they are dealing with anyone not feeling considerable strain at this point could well be considered psychopathic.
Lobbyist Grover Norquist comes to mind. (The fact that he, an outsider lobbyist, was able to convince legitimate, elected members of congress to take a ‘no tax pledge’ is astonishing. I don’t personally know anyone who has taken a ‘pledge’ after the eighth grade.)
In any case I’m sure that our elected representatives, including our president, will do the right thing. It may look like a three ring circus but it’s really democracy in action. And that’s why I love this freaking country.
I’m long the dollar.
