Again Americans can see they only represent the status quo strategy of continuing down a path of slow decline. Their proposal would
a) Eliminate funds designated for maintenance of highway and bridge infrastructure maintenance
b) Create a 'solution' which further reduces government resources. The lost funds eliminate maintenance, or cause of further borrowing of funds from China and the Saudis. This debt financing causes a further decline in the value of the US dollar and causes a further increase in the price of gas at the pumps.
Its this short sighted reasoning which more and more Americans are starting to figure out. Hopefully in November, these two candidates and others who support the slow decline of the Us economy and its middle class will be repudiated.
