Lawmakers pepper their forced spending cuts arguments with salty language as the deadline looms. Dana Bash reports.
I may not have a vote (resident alien) but I have a voice. What is currently happening in Washington reminds me of the philosophical story of a Judge, 2 Women and a child, each of them claimed to be hers. The wise Judge put the child (USA) in a circle and told the two women (parties) that the one with the greater love will pull harder. We all know how the story ends, the wise judge knew the one with the greater love would let go, to not harm the child but rather lose. Every day I see signs of an improving economy all around me, housing is being built, businesses being opened, companies are expanding, we are heading in the right direction as people and as a nation. We will always agree to disagree, but that is alright, we all have to compromise sometimes, it's part of everyday life. It not only CAN be done it MUST be done! Politicians you are not harming each other, you are harming this country, keep that in mind!
