BUDGET: Failure reflected in both Washingtons

The day-to-day news coming out of Washington must be confusing to a lot of people, mainly not knowing which Washington the news is coming from.

What’s going on in the state of Washington is a mirror image of the ineptness going on in Washington, D.C. Senate Majority Leader turned quasi-Republican Rodney Tom appears to be aping the antics of D.C. politicians, struggling for power rather than doing the people’s business.

When bodies of elected officials have two years to put together a budget and fail, does that show they lack qualifications to lead? Most would agree that it goes without saying.

Sequestration has caused real damage to America. Most don’t see it, and it appears the same is about to happen to a lot of citizens in the state of Washington.

I have a novel suggestion for both Washingtons: Get up early, go to work early, stay eight hours and get your job done. You know, like most of America does.
