It seems our president and congress need to apply, immediately, the same intense resourcefulness, utilized to save our Apollo 13 astronauts, to balancing our budget and solving our problems. JFK said, “Ask not what your country can do for you–ask what you can do for your country.” Instead of our congress working together, they work to get re-elected so they can enhance their pay, their retirement benefits, their perks and honorariums and keep their health insurance. At best, their self-indulgence is most demoralizing. 

I sometimes wonder if our congress has the wisdom to live beyond these present moments? Too many Americans, of all colors and cultures, have sacrificed more than their share of blood, sweat and heartache so our “legislators” and us can enjoy our blessings. All Americans deserve profoundly more respect and better results than our president and congress are producing.
