This appeared as a comment to my previous post about Dick Cheney and Mitch McConnell. In my heart I know he is right.
"They don't have the guts to actually do anything. They just want to make enough noise that they can hold it up as banner during the next election. Hopefully they can make enough noise to get everyone to forget that they caused this problem as much as anyone.
"The world economy is already trash, the US is already insolvent, the system now only runs on debt. Everyone knows this which is why no one calls our bluff.
"But this is only about getting re-elected so they can stuff their pockets more. No one is going to try and fix things because things are unfixable."
