Our economic infrastructure is being absolutely gutted, and more than 46 million Americans are now living in poverty. And if you are waiting for the jokers in Washington, D.C., to fix things, you are going to be waiting a long time.
Over the past several years, both the Democrats and the Republicans have proven again and again they are basically completely and totally useless. In fact, just about everything they try to do actually makes our problems even worse.
President Barack Obama leaves for a 17-day holiday vacation in Hawaii. Many have criticized him and the members of Congress for taking so much time off, but perhaps that is the best thing that they can do at this point.
As long as they are away from Washington, D.C., at least they won't be making things even worse for all the rest of us.
