We have inconsistent expectations of our government--we expect our new administration to fix the damage from the past 8 years in only two years that they have been in the majority. There are rabid anti-government voters who rail at regulation but scream for government help when they are in need. I feel like I live in Bizarro World when people will tolerate a costly and unnecessary war in which lives and our treasury are expended, but are utterly opposed to having our nation's health care system reformed for their better interests. I hope Americans prove the polls wrong and vote in more Democrats so that we can actually get the ball rolling on some middle class benefiting policies.
