Somehow, we will resolve these issues, hopefully very soon. Others are bound to follow. Shutting down the federal government and risking default should never happen again. However, they almost certainly will recur unless our leaders work together to develop long-range plans for reasonably priced national health care and financial credibility in government.
That’s why Congressman Lee Hamilton is such a precious asset. He offers us knowledge, skills, experience and a neutral perspective. We won’t have him forever, so we should utilize his talents and nonpartisan vision while we can.
