A Working Government

For the most recent political history, congress has been consumed with budget cuts, budget increases and overall positioning for future elections.  However it is possible that we are seeing the start of something new, A working government.  Instead of worrying about the elections, congress has started asserting its authority and have pushed the Whitehouse to back off of the Iran Nuclear Sanction.  Why does this matter?  Look back and ask yourself when the last time congress has pushed back on any executive actions and when they did, were they meaningful?  Whether or not you believe the Iran Sanctions should or should not be lifted, it is still important to realize that congress is doing what they were hired to do.


 

Do you feel that we are starting to see the return of a working government?  Is it too early to tell? Tell us what your thoughts are.

Democrat Top Post

Congress is wrong in softening sanctions. Do they not see the problems in the middle east? Do they not read or hear reports from the military and CIA? Do they not understand that the ISIS or ISLE are there and could be the ones directly behind the isotope enrichment? There are too many wolves in sheep clothing. I do not trust what Iran is saying and never will. There are enough surgical isotopes manufactured around the world and readily available. If we are to lift sanctions do so by allowing imports of medical products greatly needed by their country. Allow them to expand but they must spend all the oil money they receive on products needed for their national infrastructure. Not building stockpiles of highly enriched plutonium that has only one purpose. I do not see a government trying to work together. I see corporate greed pushing members of Congress and the Senate to go against what the United States needs. Protecting our borders and our allies. And this protection should be from the loony tunes that think Christians are the slime of the world and should be destroyed. I believe they (Iran) will lie through their teeth to get what they want. There is tons of money in their country (Iran) and it is being funneled to our presidential, congressional and senate leaders through the good ol' boy network called lobbying. Fox News and other "news" companies are owned by corporations that enjoy their wealth and turn facts into deceit to elicit their own means by twisting truths to the American people that are willing to listen because they do not know any better. All the major networks are owned by the same major corporations that have control of our economy and everyone else's economy for that matter. It is a convoluted world we live in and it is governed by lies and deceit fueled by the great and powerful destroyer, Satan.
