I am disappointed in my country and our elected leaders. It should be obvious to anyone that our country needs to pay for what it spends, but we don’t.

Tax more, spend less or a combination of both are the solutions to the worry most of us are feeling, but we do none of the three.

Because real solutions are painful and unpopular, our elected leaders won’t call for them and we continue to elect those leaders and not demand that they do better.

I understand all the various reasons put forth as to why this is continuing but I guess, in the end, it means that all those words about America being an exceptional country with exceptional people were just words.

Just sign me one very disappointed American.
