The disagreement centers around two issues: 1. One must pay one’s bills. 2. One must live within one’s means. Even little kids know these basic truths. But the negotiating team led by a senior adult on one side and by a relatively younger adult on the opposing side, our national leaders (I know I am being generous), don’t want to simultaneously grasp both truths.
If history is any indication, one minute before the proverbial tomorrow a comprise will be reached, and each side will proclaim victory to their respective constituents, who have often scratched their heads wondering why and how they entrusted their overall well being to such individuals.
If they can’t reach a compromise by the fast approaching deadline, then, tomorrow will really be a bad day.
