Just some thoughts after reading the posts. Am I the only moderate in tne group so far? I am disallusioned but ever hopeful that the President and current Congress will get along, agree to disagree, and then work toward coming to a compromise. I love Medicare, but understand it needs to be reigned in and watch more closely. I think everyone needs access to healthcare and do believe in some basic healthcare for all. I think it should be the same for Congress and all our representatives. There were too many not covered because of preexisting conditions, loss of jobs, and poor coverage for the poor depending on what state you live in.
I do not believe we need to be paying for our elected officials retirement.
Some of those who are running for political office are scarey and way too far to the right . But I have not yet heard all of them speak and may change my mind later. I do believe in a strong military but not sure we need bases all over Europe. We need to keep a well trained modern military.
I do think a collaboration on raising tax revenue and cutting spending was the way to go and feel the Republicans "no tax increase ever" was stubborn and bull headed. The super committee on taxes was a joke and not surprised at all nothing was done. This is the longest post I have ever made. I don't Facebook or Tweet.
