Congress

 

Despite all of us facing 2o13 with a significant increase in US taxes and yet more financial and economic uncertainty as we all plunge recklessly over the ‘fiscal cliff’ it is good to see that the Senate and Congress have their priorities right… It is important to note that those who have chosen to NOT reach agreement will be little affected by this. While it is good that, unable to reach agreement on tax increases, they stay on and work (might as well as they are there) on OTHER matters, you have to wonder whether they are properly representing the will of the people. What IS galling though is this: “Obama Orders Pay Raise For Congress, Federal Workers, Joe Biden” OK for the federal workers as they do need this (minimal) increase but Congress? The posturing and way that they are not representing their constituents is why the whole thing is not working despite the BBC’s American Correspondent, Mark Mardell, praising the situation as being evidence of the Constitution working… here.
