Letter: When it comes to Congress -- stupid is as stupid does

March 22, 2013 

The current budget "sequester" is not happening because we have a tax problem or a spending problem. It's happening because we have a Congress problem.

Because Congress failed to do what they were sent there to do -- agree on a way to pay our collective expenses and bills -- the country is now forced (by Congress) to impose an answer that was designed (by Congress) to be so stupid that it would force them to get together and find a better solution. How stupid is that?

Tell your representative to find a better solution now or we can find a better representative!
