Taking A Stand: The Fiscal Cliff

Posted: Updated:

 

Regardless of whether you are a student or a member of the United States work force, you are expected to complete your assignment and work on time.  You make deadlines! 

I ask why that doesn't apply to our governing representatives?   

I'm not going to take a stand on who's proposal to avoid the fiscal cliff is the correct solution.
 
From my viewpoint , both sides have some valid points, but there is a real stubbornness on both sides of the aisle, and to allow this issue get down to the wire is just plain irresponsible.  

If it was you or me and we missed a deadline that this is important, we would be fired. I say shame on Congress and the administration for disregarding the welfare of Americans, both employed and those who are on government support.  

One deadline that President Obama, Congressmen and Senators did compete last Thursday, was their pay raise that goes into effect next year.  

Does that burn your hide?  

It does mine and it's not fair to any of us, regardless of what party you support.  

That's my stand, what's yours?
