Who says we don't make anything anymore? America must be the number one producer of manufactured fiscal crises. From the debt ceiling, to sequestration, to the fiscal cliff, our government has found ways to develop deadlines to threaten our fragile economy.
Instead of bouncing from one manufactured crisis to the next, it would be nice if the Republicans in the House and the Democrat in the White House, could put together a long term deal to stimulate the economy now, and cut future spending on the military and entitlement programs.
Unfortunately that would require compromise from both parties and that has become a dirty word in Washington. Republicans and Democrats have decided that it's easier to just let the economy fall apart and then blame the other side.
