Congress approves or disapproves budgets.

If we have budget problems, it is because Congress and special-interest groups want it that way.

If we can't drill for our own oil, Congress wants it that way.

If Social Security is messed up, Congress wants it that way.

If illegal immigration is sanctioned, you guessed it, Congress wants it that way.

Congress could fix all of this if the representatives we elected were more concerned with their voters than their careers. It will take courage, foresight and honesty to address these problems. Alas, few in the present Congress have these virtues.
