Many of the problems we face in the United States today are due to misguided past policies. Undeclared wars, tax breaks for the wealthy and subsidies for special interests have created a major deficit out the surplus left by the Clinton administration.
Growing problems came, at no extra charge, to the Democrats with winning the 2008 election. And, the growing problems have been made more difficult by the total lack of bipartisanship currently being shown in Washington. Somehow, many seem to believe that defeating President Obama is their No. 1 goal; more important than developing sustainable national policy.
