Today's politicians only care about their own agendas and the heck with the rest of the country. They have completely forgotten how to compromise across the aisle, and this has ruined the past decade.
A couple of the main problems in this country are, the immigration problem and especially illegals. This problem must be dealt with soon as does the border problem. No other country would allow so many people to pour into their country illegally. This problem is draining resources.
The economy is still a big problem and too many confuse a rising stock market with the economy. This stock market boom has been one of the strangest ever. A rising stock market and a pathetic employment market with double digit unemployment rates, the real U6 rate that counts those that have quit looking and those that are underemployed.
Jobs, oursourcing and companies that continue to move their HQs out of country for tax reasons.
Congress has completely ignored all of these issues as the Senate has.
Another huge problem is the budget. It continues to skyrocket with less and less revenues coming in. Fix the tax laws and bring back jobs and at least the tax revenues will rise.
