“CNN claims that the federal government is not spending $300 million dollars a day since the shutdown. Fox News states that the government is borrowing $300 million a day less since the shutdown. What we have here is a difference in perspective.”

America’s middle class used to be the proud backbone of our economy. They made things, things of value that other people would pay for. Not only did the middle class prosper, they were the driver of America’s emergence as the world’s economic superpower.
So let me get this straight…
Several nonprofit and for-profit organizations with East Valley ties expect to feel the effects of an extended closure of the federal government.
One could conclude the Democratic Party has swung too far to the left and peril awaits them in up-coming elections. Debt is no longer fashionable; a tool many bragged was trendy. One need not look far to see citizens across the land rising in revolt to the status quo.
