Will the US default on it's loans on the 17th or will a deal be in place... I am hoping that both parties can put aside their grandstanding, rhetoric and blustering to make a deal for the good of the US and its' people. I do not like the idea of the default as I do live on public assistance- not by choice but because of disability reasons.
Last time we almost defaulted I got lucky because my aunt gave my sisters and I some money from her retirement buy-out so I'd had money just in case. This time around I don't know if I will be as lucky because last year my aunt had to help me with moving expenses when I had to move to another apartment.
SO to put it bluntly: I'm nervous and a bit on edge. I'm also tired of this BS in Washington and that both parties are acting like petulant children and not willing to work together. It's like a giant game of recess arguments by both sides (recess argument is what I always called it when two groups would argue on the playground during recess...) and I'm sick of it.
Not sure what I will do if the US defaults... I know I am not alone on that- my parents can't help me as they are retired and on Social Security. My sisters wouldn't be able to help me- so I'm hoping for the best. I also doubt my friends would be able to help me either. Its a giant catch-22 if you ask me.
This dysfunction in Washington has to stop. The problems caused by some radical Republicans and inexperienced tea-partiers has caused enough problems. It is time for a change- and I for one will be voting the tea-partiers out next year. 2014 can't come soon enough if you ask me...
I already feel like Oliver Twist right now and I don't want to feel that way if I have to ask my aunt for money if we default... I don't want to ask her for help because that's the last thing I want to do. I'm really tired of this. I just wish both parties would put their petty differences aside and work for the good of the country rather than what their lobbyists, millionaire donors, corporate backers want them to do.
The whole sick thing about this is that I have some friends who are ACTUALLY CHEERING FOR THE DEFAULT; because they want the US to collapse.
