Washington politicians still don't get it.
While citizens become further disgusted and exasperated by their inaction and detrimental partisan politics, our country continues to drift aimlessly toward mediocrity and second-rate world status.
The buck should stop with them, yet major problems remain unresolved. Important issues, including the economy, jobs, debt, education, illegal immigration, current military actions, Social Security and health care reform, are swept up into stubborn, hard-headed party politicking .
Instead of being part of the answer, they are part of the problem, allowing party loyalties (Republican and Democratic) to influence their positions.
Never miss a local story.
What ever happen to individual integrity, honesty and common sense, putting the interest of citizens first?
Once again, the present national dilemma speaks to their inability to do what is right for our country.
When will they recognize their responsibility as an elected representative to lead as a person (not as a Democrat or Republican), striving to reach negotiated, bipartisan agreement on the issues facing our country.
Will they ever get it? Do they want to get it?
