What are the real issues?

What are the real issues?

Our government is on the brink of bankruptcy. People by the thousands are losing their homes to foreclosure. Our infrastructure is falling down around us. The war on drugs becomes more of a losing battle everyday. Millions are without healthcare. The rest of the world hates us. Iran continues to give us the run around and the whole Middle East is a tinderbox. Our kids fall farther and farther behind every day academically and college is fast becoming out of reach for many. We are eating our selves into early deaths from obesity. Oh, there is more bad news but you get the picture.

What are our legislators talking about this week? They are talking about the President’s views on Gay marriage and how Mitt Romney cut someone’s hair in college fifty years ago. Yeah, it give’s you a warm and fuzzy feeling doesn’t it.
