Are You Kidding Me?

According to a Gallup poll, 77 percent of Americans believe politics in Washington is causing serious harm to the country. Is anyone surprised by this after the embarrassment that was the “fiscal cliff”?
What is surprising is that 23 percent of Americans don’t think politics in Washington is causing serious harm, or have no opinion. Really? That many people don’t realize the impact the dysfunction in Washington is having? All the more reason why the public needs to be more educated on the facts regarding our nation’s problems, including our poor fiscal condition. Unfortunately, I have a feeling that some of that 23 percent may join the others after they see the fallout from the next round of political grandstanding over the debt ceiling, but let’s hope I’m proved wrong.
