The short-term fix to the budget, is irresponsible and catastrophic to the people of this country. We deserve a better effort from our lawmakers. Every hot button issues that are being discussed, should be included in the budget negotiations, nothing less. Congress should fulfill their oath to the people, to protect, preserve and provide for our security and life. And not cater to the whims of a leader who is soft on countries whose ideology is based on fascism; Russia.
