Mr. Krauthammer spent little time I suppose with his diatribe of "Dare Democrats to act on nation's debt", the problem is not with the Senate Democrats, the problem is with the Congress as a whole, Democrats, Republicans and Independents. We all know for any passage of any bill, it must make it way successfully through both Houses. Everyone has decided not to "play ball" in Washington, whenever compromise is left at the steps, then not much will be accomplished. The Democrats made the mistake of not pursuing some meaningful advances when they controlled both houses, after the mid-term election of 2010, the Democrats were side-lined as far as making any progress. The attrition that is now taking place on the Hill has no end in sight. To point ones finger at either of the two parties, at the end of the day, there's nothing accomplished and the citizens continue to "languish on the vine". The President does not need to "hold" the hands of those that were sent to Washington to handle the people business. Unless our so-called leaders set aside their partisan bickering, this nation will not resemble anything we will be proud to call the home of the brave.
In response to:
Dare the Senate Democrats to vote down the grandest of all bargains. Dare Obama to veto his own debt commission. Dare the Democrats to actually do something about debt.
