In truth, most of us have the same limitations on our family budgets, so I understand that thinking. What I don't understand is why those in DC seem to think otherwise, and I'm talking both sides of the aisle. Business also seems to be more nimble in making decisions, too; plus a CEO and his advisors can get fired almost immediately if the shareholders get irate enough, so I wonder, if government had to live under the same conditions, if we'd be in better shape financially than we are?. I think we probably would be, because of the accountability factor, and they wouldn't be allowed to keep their job until the next election, either. The only "shareholders" in government are the taxpayers, and few politicians seem to care what we think - until election time comes. Then we're suddenly important again, and the cycle continues, ad nauseum, as lots of promises are made to correct things that aren't working. Weird way to live, but I guess we're used to it.
    I believe the word missing in government employment is, 'accountability'.

    I'm not comfy with the idea of welfare recipients repairing bridges and highways, if a Welfare client is qualified to do that work they're probably either already working or disabled and can't work
    Greetings, EMNofSeattle.

    I don't know what constitutes a "crisis," but my posted thinking has always been that FDR had the right idea back in the days of the Great Depression. He created all his alphabet agencies, and put men to work. He seemed to understand that men have a need to feel that they are providing for their family, and they loved him for it!
    He became a hero to millions of American families! And look at what those legions of men accomplished - national parks we still use today; massive tree plantings that halted soil erosion; building the Grand Coulee Dam that still provides water for that area; water and sewage systems that are still in use today, although they badly need upgrading after 80 years of use; and many other areas that still benefit all of us. It was good honest work, and no one felt demeaned by doing it. They were glad to feel that the money they earned provided for their families when little other work was available. Over the years, I have listened to many old-timers who were young at that time describing the work they did, and how proud they are of what they accomplished, and it sure was interesting to listen to how they lived during that decade of poverty, making the best of a bad situation while still keeping their personal standards high.

    I wonder sometimes that if those days come again, whether this generation is capable of meeting the challenge!

    While this is necessary because she is a criminal you will be watching a re-run of the Michael Corleone testimony in "Godfather II" or that of the former chairwoman of the IRS. She and her hubby are convinced beyond any doubt they look in the camera and lie and simply walk away and to date they are correct.

    The amount of energy needed to refute bull**** is an order of magnitude bigger than the energy required to produce it.

    When the administration and Hillary actually co-operate with the investigation, answer all questions, and hand over all requested documents, it can soon be concluded. You can deny it until hell freezes over, however the administration's tactic is just to obfuscate and wait it out until they think everyone including the press will see it as old news. The problem with that is that information is slowly leaking out....such as Hillary's email scandal and wiped server...the possible influence peddling while Hillary was SEC of State through the Clinton Foundation. And personally, I would like an honest answer to why the administration and Hillary lied and pushed that phony "It was the video" lie for two weeks.....and why no rescue op was mounted. Benghazi is not a trivial issue. Our Ambassador and three other Americans were killed.

    Hah! Amazing to watch you defend Bonnie and Clyde on the strength of the thought that the police can't catch them.

    You think Whitewater was legal? A couple went to prison, but the main culprit managed to wiggle her way out of it with a fine. And that's just ONE of her many misadventures.

    Let me help you out. After many investigations the Republican lead investigation found this: GOP panel on Benghazi finds no Obama administration wrongdoing
