Last month's failure of the Congressional "Supercommittee" to come up with any solutions regarding taxes and spending is shameful. But truthfully, it's just another example of the chronic dysfunction that has made this Congress one of the most reviled in history.
These six Democrats and six Republicans had a single task: Examine the imbalance between government spending and revenue, and then decide what we can no longer afford. Or, on the other hand, what we have to do to raise more money.
Sure, that involves making hard choices, but that's what we hired these people to do. And their pitiful response at this critical moment was to make no choice at all. To refuse to compromise. To basically say "this isn't our job" even though that's exactly what it was.
So now, automatic spending cuts across the board are supposed to kick in. But Congress insists we can't have that either! So we remain frozen in a state of inaction.
Currently, only nine percent of Americans approve of the job Congress is doing. But paradoxically, if the past is any indication, next November almost everyone who runs for re-election will be sent back to Washington.
This is insanity. It's way past time our elected officials were held accountable by someone.
