CNN is reporting on the status of the debt ceiling talks in Washington. It seems there is nothing new to report on the Republicans and the Democrats. Each party says the other is holding up the process.
It is a sad commentary on this country's state of affairs when reasonable people cannot come together for the good of their country. Both parties are guilty of grandstanding and maintaining their positions to the detriment of others.
But walking out of the talks is being a baby and serves no purpose other than grandstanding. If the Task force has reached impasse, then the Task force in mass should state that. To quit and take your marbles home is cowardly and childish. Leaders work to come to a solution. Democrats and Republicans were put on this important task force for a reason - to come to table in good faith, to come to a consensus solution that can be brought back to Congress for a vote that has a chance to pass.
Why does it always have to be my way or the highway? Why does it have to be all or nothing? Why does it have to be a blame game? Both parties are to blame for the condition of the country. This did not happen on any one particular President's term of office.
Congress is broke and we are all paying the price.
