  • No, it won't. I'm thinking the dems, and some repubs, are the poster children for the definition of insanity.

    They keep doing the same thing over and over hoping for a different result. Helllllooooooooooo massive spending is what got us into this mess!

  • Spending to get out of debt, is like digging a hole to China. Even if it works, you'll end up in bad place.

  • Depends on your definition of "FIX" and for whom... For we the people, NO! But for those who have a different agenda, yes, they have "fixed" it just the way they want it to be... imo, anyway~~~
