Failure to Govern

It happened.

Government Shutdown Begins as Budget Talks Falter in SenateThe New York Times

The Congress and the President have failed to agree on funding the government and the doors to many agencies are shuttered. 

The future of our country hangs in this precarious balancing act between the President and the congress. I believe that it will only get worse especially after the mid-term elections.

Our legislators and elected officials have apparently forgotten that the needs of the country must outweigh their own personal needs and gains. The art if the deal lies in the ability to compromise and find a win-win-solution, let's try that for something new.
