In the quest to appear fair, journalists in both print and on TV have betrayed simple honesty. Washington has ceased to govern and is actively sabotaging the economy, and the main creators of obstacles are the Congressional Republicans.
And no one in the mainstream media is pointing this out. No one.
Almost a month ago, President Obama laid out his plan to create jobs and invest in our infrastructure. The bottom line: More people working and better roads, bridges, and schools. Congress refuses to vote on it, because they know their constituents will punish them if they vote no when they next go to the polls.
All of the goals set forth in this bill have been approved before by both Republicans and Democrats. There is no excuse for not doing what is needed to repair our crumbling schools, roads and bridges; there is no excuse for not supporting now what was supported before. All these things need to be done for public safety, and they need to get started right away. Blocking this bill is morally, ethically and economically wrong for the vast majority of Americans.
