The less they do, the better off we are
Recently there has been a lot of talk in and around Congress and the nation concerning the possibility of gridlock in Congress as if it were bad for the nation.
I offer another view on gridlock. Take a look back over the past 30 years or more and try to figure out how the nation got $120 trillion in debt before it became known as a disaster. My position is that if woulda, coulda, shoulda applied more gridlock then, we would still be the richest and strongest country in the world. We would not be in a recession/depression and would not be facing bankruptcy.
I for one advocate more gridlock until we clear out some of the overgrown unnecessary agencies such as the Education Department with its too many employees and results that are poorer with every passing year, followed by the Energy Department, which has 12,000 employees or more and doesn’t produce one barrel of oil but does hand out a lot of subsidy money. Of course I would eliminate the EPA as well.
This is just a start. If the nation lapses into bankruptcy, then all kinds of cuts will have to be made. D.G. Anderson San Mateo, California
