After 3 years still no budget – pathetic – coming chaos

Jeff Sessions and Paul Ryan: Obama’s dereliction of duty

Given the fallen expectations for this president, his latest broken promise was no surprise to the millions of Americans who have seen great hope turn to great cynicism.

With health bill, Obama has sown the seeds of a budget crisis

Moody’s emphasizes two warning signs: rising debt and loss of confidence that government will deal with it. Obama fulfills both. The parallels with the recent financial crisis are striking. Bankers and rating agencies engaged in wishful thinking to rationalize self-interest.
