The whole thing is a farce, a comedy of poor acting ability. All of this make believe posturing and hand wrenching by these politicians.
Let me ask you this one question.
If the country is truly broke and we are in need of severe, aggressive cutbacks to the national budget........why may I ask are we still pooring over $1 billion per day on this endless and idiotic war in Afghanistan?
How, as a politician and elected official, can they honestly say with a straight face "sorry retiree's, military dependants, school children, unemployed people....we dont have enough in the coffers to meet payroll"....all while continuing to waste massive amounts of money on this stupid war?
So we will cut social security and education to the bone, while we send billions of dollars that we dont have to prop up Israel and Egypt and to sustain military bases in over 100 foreign lands?
Truly sickening and shameful. We should all be ashamed.

I don't think it will happen. The natives would get restless. I think this just puts more pressure on someone
to fold and compromise.
