The US is buried in debt and all they can think of is creating more debt. It's a house of cards and they want to go higher. Their only remedy is more debt. How did they get elected? Seriously, it's time for a new system. It's time to vote for issues and to fire the politicians that oppose it, let some apply for the jobs of Implementing the results of the votes. We could build it on the town level to work out the bugs. My brother pays $1250 a year taxes on a 2700 square foot house on 56 acres in NY State. I pay $4800 for a 1350 square foot house on 1/4 acre in a different town in NY State. Both are far from NY City. We could vote our taxes lower.
