There is an elephant in the living room

Washington acts increasingly illogical every day. The economy is crumbling and millions of jobs have been lost. Yet the administration is pushing nationalized health care with all its might to spend even more money we don’t have. And, of course, the idea of an immigration moratorium to help the unemployed and under-employed is simply never discussed; it’s like the huge “elephant in the living room” no one wants to admit is there. Meanwhile, we’re mega-trillions of dollars in debt, yet no one questions the outsourcing-insourcing economy that has gutted this country. It’s business as usual in Washington, even as the ship of state is careening out of control.
