It’s as if the politicians in D.C have become deaf, dumb and blind. I can be mean and say that they have always been dumb, but they have truly turned a deaf ear to what is really happening in the job markets. And they’ve turned a blind eye as well, instead of staying in their nice homes, perhaps they need to take a few days and trail a few of their long term unemployed constituents. You know, as preparation for when they will eventually be unemployed from their post as senator of congressman. They should see first hand the amount of cold-calling, mailing out resumes and online research and applications, one spends their time doing in the hopes of getting that first interview. Deficits will continue to climb because we still are underemployed by a huge margin, we don’t have a spending problem, we have a revenue problem. It’s not even about raising taxes, it’s about the lost revenues from all of our unemployed workers. It’s a huge gap, why don’t they wake up? If the GOP is gambling with our economic lives simply to oust President Obama, they are a heartless crowd and don’t deserve to be in office.
