Super committee gives up

Atascadero

So, the best and brightest (supposedly) of our leaders in Congress, given a critically important job, couldn’t solve a problem in three months? Imagine if they were execs at a big, successful corporation—Apple, Ford, GE, Google, etc.—and came back to their CEO to say they had given up. They’d all be looking for new jobs.

Why should the folks we send to Washington to represent us be held to any lesser standards than those in private industry? They all deserve to lose their jobs. If we sent them packing, maybe the rest of Congress—both parties—would get the message and start doing their jobs.
