The United States is more than $15 TRILLION in debt, and going further into debt at the rate of about $4 Billion a day. The House of Representatives passed a budget back in April, 2011. That bill, along with another twenty or so, still sits on Harry Reid's desk, and he and the Democrats don't plan on doing anything about it except buy more shovels.
The economy is in the tank. The unemployment is officially 8.9%, and unofficially above 12%. The underemployment figure is something like 17%. Every day, however, sees more regulation, more rules, more restrictions that keep employers from being willing to hire, and keeping investors from parting with their money.
I think the best thing the electorate can do come this November is buy a large bulldozer and fill in that hole our current government is digging -- with them still in that hole. Getting rid of between a third and a half of our current bureaucracy would do wonders for job creation, and would reduce spending considerably. All in favor, say Aye, and get behind that dozer!
