Spending is a bipartisan obsession
If you engage with government long enough, as I have, it is hard not to become cynical. Then again, cynics often see an unfiltered version of the truth. At this moment, politics weigh heavily upon voters who care. In a few weeks, we will determine who will occupy the White House and Congressional seats for the next four years. Here in the Bayou State, a tumultuous legislative session looms in the spring. The nexus of much of the turmoil in both Baton Rouge and Washington has to do with the desire to spend money greatly in excess of the amount available to spend.
