One of the problems is that Republicans are saying NO to all changes to tax and spending that are proposed by the administration.  Even many Democrats are doing that too.  So the administration is being stifled from fixing anything. Then of course the Republicans will be ragging on the administration for not fixing stuff.  Cure the hyperpartisan ship in Washington and you might just get better governing.

With the extra trillion$$$$ & both houses of congress plus the presidency & your side is still complaining it can't get anything done? What did the taxpayers get for their money?

Mark de LA says
Is this kind of thing what's in store for the good old USA after Obama & the Congress finish bankrupting her?
Germany wants Greece to sell off its islands for cash!
Hmmmm .... maybe Hawaii & the Virgin Islands, eh?  Possibly Manhattan & the Florida Keys.

... & this is how it is done:
TWS: ...

Here's an example: President Obama's first budget (for 2010), entitled "A New Era of Responsibility: Renewing America's Promise," projected that 2012 deficit spending would be $581 billion.  His second budget, for 2011, projected that 2012 deficit spending would be $828 billion. Now, his actual 2012 budget projects that 2012 deficit spending will be $1.101 trillion. That's an increase of more than a half a trillion dollars in 730 days.

Gives you a lot of confidence in the Obama administration's predictions about Obamacare, doesn't it?

... no budget - no wonder!
