Question from WE THE PEOPLE

About: of marshmallows & pols


Here is a question I would ask of all candidates vying for office in the next election: How do you expect to accomplish all your programs & goals?  Sure, we know you can spin yours as the best but, can you get it done (whatever it is) ? How well have you thought them through? What are the major steps & assumptions you are making. For those thinking about tax reform - how do you overcome the 2000 pound marshmallow of inertia & favors paid to/by former power brokers who may still be around?

Good question !

Mark de LA says
WOW! We agree @S.  The biggest challenge is that this question will probably never be asked until it's too late. The next biggest challenge is that the question will never be answered while the M$M is watching since there is not an unhurried moment before the cameras to provide the answers without $pin. The Republican debates degenerated into $oundbyte$ & gotcha$ .  Any suggestions out there to change the formats & get real answers?
The greatest challenge yet is that the M$M actually elects the politicians. People are too lazy to vote & too lazy to connect with their representatives; that being a subject for discussion later on.
