I used to wonder why our representatives are so cavalier about the country’s fiscal position, the debt and the deficit. I believe most of them know that a financial tsunami is likely headed our way. I now believe that most of them presume they can safely ride out the tsunami, due to the fact that they are much more financially secure than the rest of us. I am not so sure they are correct, but that is the only rationale I can come up with to explain the continued delays and inaction.
