The Republicans were the first to blink and admit that they never intended to keep to the the Budget Control Act deal made during last summer’s debt-ceiling kabuki. But the Democrats admit they were going to walk away from the deal too, in due course.
In any other field except politics, they’d both be getting sued by the shareholders (you, the peepul) for breach detrimental to shareholder’s interest of what was obviously a contract. Instead we’ll be subjected to another round of campaigning over how awfully perfidious the other side is and how it’s essential to vote for them so as to prevent the others doing even more horrible things. Oh, and another kabuki dance when we hit the next debt limit.
There’s only one rational conclusion: a purge to replace the entire board and upper management of America Inc. is desperately overdue.
(That I personally prefer the Dem walk-away over the Republican one is neither here nor there for the purposes of this post.)
