No Accountability

Despair

Speaker John Boehner and his aides have released a PowerPoint presentation describing the details of the proposed debt-ceiling bill. Front and center, on slide one, it reads: “Two-step approach to hold President Obama accountable.” Sorry, but the purpose of any bill should never be to hold a single person accountable. Is this not why we have 535 representatives between the House and Senate? All too often we hear things like “the president of the United States has too much power” – well this is why. It is because of games like this why the citizens of this country have no faith in their government.
