I believe I've just figured out the truth about the debt ceiling crisis. Think about it. The Democrats and the Republicans no longer listen to the people they are elected and paid to represent. They don't even act in our nation's best interest anymore, treasonous really. The only thing they seem to care about is re-election and campaign contributions which led me to the answer, follow the money.
It is one of the first lessons you learn if you go into journalism especially investigative journalism. If you want to find the truth, follow the money. So, I stopped asking myself why would they plunge our economy into chaos for political posturing or even to make President Obama one term. Who stands to benefit financially from this newly created fiasco? Now, the answer seems obvious. The same people who complained, not too terribly long ago, we weren't paying enough interest on the money we owed them, the Chinese.
Truly think about it, and it makes perfect sense. Our politicians from both parties are going to keep playing this game until we're paying more interest on our debt which both parties know will increase our budget problems. Everyone in America knows the answer to this entire problem is the creation of more sustainable jobs in this country, regardless if we need to spend more to accomplish the task. So, why wouldn't both parties, when every American knows the solution, work on that issue before all others?
Did we elect the dumbest people we could find? No, they're not really stupid. They're just playing dumb while they collect contributions instead of doing their jobs. You can check out my previous blogs to find out my take on the debt ceiling, fixing the economy and other things. Wake up America!
