Letter: It could get worse
I have watched this election process with some interest and despair. With all the problems the country is facing, there is a strong possibility that the governing process will be as screwed up after as it was before.
Well before the any of the polls were closed, the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives was in the press stating that although the country faces a fiscal cliff, there would be no increases in taxes for anybody as part of the solution. Before the discussion has even started, the GOP is drawing a line in the sand. Congress created this fiscal mess, and Congress will have to develop a solution.
If this is the position of the GOP on this, we will know who to thank as the economy tanks. And if you think that the last four years of recovery have been bad, just wait. It can, and will, get worse.
