That is unreal. No wonder the schools are struggling.
Politicians are flawed just like you and me. Members of both parties have had lurid sex scandals. The list is too large list and the names on the list would come from both sides of the isle of both parties. That said, my prayers and thoughts are with this couple and hope that healing, forgivness and grace will prevail.
Are the illegal aliens in the community because of an invitation from the business community? This is a far more complex issue and deserves more commentary from the police and the hispanic community. These people are probably just hard working people looking for a better oppertunity to take care of their families.
The value of homes were tremedously inflated for the past decade. It was not sustainable nor practical for poeple to supersize thier homes and raid the equity of their homes for vacations they could not afford. What goes up way too fast usually comes crashing down. Are we even at the bottom? What if housing prices continue to decline? In fact, most economist believe that home prices will not stablize until 2014.
It was really the perfect economic storm. Moreover, with people purchusing homes they could not afford. Next,with the banks and mortgage companies selling loans to consumers that they could not afford we have come to this place of uncertainty and concern. Now the ecnomical infrastructure is collasping all around us. Some times even block by block. It was not sustainable and those entrusted with oversight, those who sold and marketed the loans and even the consumer who bought the mortgage is complicit in this economic collaspe.
The coporate elite and both political pundents on both sides of the isle are not the friends of working folks. We ought not fool ourselves to think other wise. Legislatures both the republicans and democrats do the bidding of the coporatocracy. The solution to solve the problems with medicare and medicade will have to support from both parties. Therfore, the leaders need to employ an intergrative negotiation proccess an solicit input from all key congressional leaders to bring this matter to a favorable conclusion. This will enable the out come to be a win, win proposal. To think that an agreement can be reach any other way is not realistic. Moreover,the present status of the negotiation are not moving in the right direction and the time wasted with solutions that are not in the best interest of the citzens of this great nation. We deserve better from our elected officials. Congress and the senators involved with this very serious matter have fidiciary respeonsibility to the american public.
The recent assault on medicare by the far right seems to have hit a huge push back. The recent election in NY would lead most political pundits to concur that Congressman Ryan's budget propaosal and more specifically the desire to privatize medicare is a non-starter. What needs to been is to fully fund the program and allow health insurance companies to work hand-an-glove with the goverment to make the medicare program more expansive at the same time controlling cost. This approach of course is very sucessful with TRICARE. Moreover, the partnership with Hummana Healthcare which provides healthcare to military servicemembers, family members, and retirees in southern part of the United States.
