As a veteran, I wonder why President Barack Obama, House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid aren't putting an end to this nonsense in Washington.
As a lame duck president, Mr. Obama's power will only decrease as time goes by. And the only reason we are dealing with these crises all the time is that Mr. Boehner doesn't want to lose his job as speaker. They should get over it.
As for Senator Reed, he barely got reelected by the people from the great state of Nevada. If he keeps this up, hopefully voters will find someone else to send to the U.S. Senate in the next election.
The three of them are ruining this great country all by themselves. They should show some patriotism and leadership and clean up the mess they have created in Washington.
