Has the bi-partisan debt deal really averted a catastrophic disaster? How would we know? In the era of “let no crises go to waste”, I have my doubts about the whole sorted mess.
The problem is that I just don’t trust any politician. It doesn’t matter if they are Republican or Democrat. What I see is perhaps the worst political class in our history. These are not elites; they are the worst of our society. Many I believe would be common criminals had they not found their way into the political ring. Oh wait, what am I saying? Some are criminals now and still remain in the Washington inner circle.
The deal they’ve created neither solves the problem or truly cuts the spending. It may slow the spending growth some and hopefully awaken the country to the need to use common sense.
Ok, I know that last part is wishful thinking.
