High Noon Economics - Who really suffers?...
James Clingman

While, admittedly, it is hard to do, we pray for these political hypocrites who are in leadership positions. We pray they will not only pose for their photo-op with the Bible but they will also do what it says with regard to those over whom they rule and for whom they make decisions. Don't just put your hand on the Book, turn the pages once in a while.

May this high-stakes game of economics come to an end soon, and may those who are playing it come to their senses before it's too late. This is not merely about the debt ceiling; it is about the future of this country and economic foundation upon which our children and grandchildren will stand. They are the ones who will suffer from this latest elephant-donkey fight.
