Quick Thought:  What if?

Why does take a terrible disaster for our elected officials to work together?

The latest example is Hurricane Sandy.  This horrific disaster has Federal, State and Local governments working together to solve the desperate needs of millions affected citizens.

What does this tell us?

What this tells us is; when “backed up against a wall” or “cliff” if you would prefer, our typically partisan government leaders are able to come together and make decisions for the good of all Americans

What if they did this every day?

What if our elected officials took this non-partisan collaborative approach to fixing the monumental and disastrous financial problems facing our states and nation? Why are our country’s mounting financial problems not critical enough to work across the aisle to come up with sound solutions?

What if our elected officials took this approach to fixing the extremely difficult economic problems facing our nation? Why are the various economic problems in the United States not critical enough to work across the aisle to come up with sound solutions?

What if our elected officials took this approach to fixing the many cultural issues facing our nation? Why are our cultural issues not critical enough to work across the aisle to come up with sound solutions?

What if?
