U.S. News & World Report: The People Washington Forgot
Our elected officials seem to have forgotten why voters sent them to D.C. in the first place.
The campaign of 2016 was full of promises.
Career politicians who had spent most of their adult life in Washington, D.C. promised to be agents of change, ignoring the fact that they had failed to bring change as of yet.
Governors promised to work the same miracles for America that they had in their home states, ignoring the fact that most states have very little in common with the federal government.
Business people promised to “run government like a business,” ignoring the fact that government is not a business, doesn’t produce anything and relies on taxpayers for revenue.
Promises to erase the deficit, cut taxes, repeal Obamacare, build a wall, defeat the Islamic State group and the list goes on and on.
