The showdown in Washington is political high drama for sure. Remember when teenagers used to play “Chicken” with bicycles and then cars…..two cars start driving toward each other head on seeing who would swerve out of the way first before a crash.
Congress appears to be playing “Chicken” with your and my money and well being, as they attempt to get concession on the Obama Care program which starts to kick in tomorrow, October 1st.
The art of comprise in Washington has turned into hard ball. Both parties are determined to get change, Democrats are surging ahead with change and additional spending while the Republican side in the House where they have control are determined to make the Democrats sit down and listen and accept some slow down on spending.
Interesting at how the head Democrats, Harry Reid and Nancy Palosi do not appear to even be in Washington as we speed toward a government shutdown which will take place at 9:00 PM Pacific Time.
It is sad that out political system does not work anymore with out severe pain to us citizens who elect representatives to go to congress and represent our best interests. Regardless of who blinks today….some of us will be hurting!
Have a great day and be kind to yourself!
