In the short term, it doesn't look like the U.S. deficit and debt situation is going to get better. To me, the long term won't be any better unless we make some significant reductions in what government spends. Otherwise, the U.S. may find itself in a financial situation equal to or worse than Greece.
Simply, we need to make the difficult choices now or suffer worse consequences later. I believe it's time we elect officials who are committed to reducing the national debt and improving the economy at the same time.
That would be change I can believe in:-)
