“A New Year’s Resolution from Dr. Howes to You”
Our accumulated United States national debt has passed an unprecedented eighteen trillion dollars, and shockingly, our unfunded liabilities are between ninety and one hundred trillion dollars. Politicians are the only people who have the audacity to create problems and then campaign against those problems. Actually, one hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices constitute the 545 human beings, out of over 300 million, who are directly, legally, ethically, and individually responsible for most of our domestic problems that are suffocating our once great Constitutional republic. Lobbyists have no legal authority and are excluded. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one darn thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician millions of dollars, the politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he votes.
