I certainly appreciate your perspective — and thank you for your service as a Marine.
Our government is a big bureaucracy Congress in particular annoys me because these days they so seldom agree to actions that would actually enable government to work better. Since 2000 especially I have felt that the overall intent that their actions have demonstrated has been the intent to prove that government does not work… a far cry from the years of the NPR whose goal was “A government that works better and costs less”…. fortunately, Congress is the leadership of the legislative branch and we work in the executive branch. The President and the Cabinet members are our leadership, and I was glad to see John Berry of OPM voice his outrage over the negative commentary about federal employees that’s been popping up a lot over the past couple of months.
And… I still hold out hope for no tax cuts for the over $250K bunch… even Warren Buffet (sp?), Ted Turner and Bill Gates were on TV this week stating that want to give up the tax cuts…
