There aren't any heroes in Washington this year.
When Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader, took to the floor today and demeaned John Boehner's ability to control the House Republican caucus, he wasn't helping prevent the Fiscal Cliff. Instead, he was further undermining Boehner's position, and therefore the house speaker's ability to bring his members in line.
Over and over again, we've seen Washington leaders take cheap shots, further proving you can't run a country with people who care more about their party than they do the United States of America.
I've written on my blogs why I can't stand the attitudes of Republicans, but this shows again why I've chosen to be an independent. You can't run a country with slime balls who don't put America first.
