We are bamboozled by politicians. When federal money spending is reduced we often find states trying to pick up the slack. When states raise taxes we complain. When states reduce spending the localities try to bear the burden and again we hear complaints. Ultimately, someone will suffer something when spending is cut. Politicians just don’t want to be blamed. And yet these very same politicians hide their “ear-marked” spending, their backroom deals and their creative bookkeeping. They show up on sound-bites for emotional issues instead.
We are in quicksand and our current politicians and candidates scream “Forward march!” Perhaps we need to pause and better decide what direction we really should choose. Quicksand will kill you if you don’t deal with it correctly.
