There must be some places on this earth that does not have Internet access or newspapers. Such spots must be pleasant, because one could avoid reporting on the idiotic nature of the US government. How can anyone believe in politicians that put non-related issues and lobbyist' interests in front of the needs of citizens? I don't want to even think about this, happy that I live afar.
That said, the solution is simple. There are two ways to run a government, business, or family: figure out how to spend the money you have or obtain the money to pay for things you want. There's plenty of money in the US, but the rich and powerful are unwilling to spend it on taxes to pay for necessary services. By the way, there is waste in every budget, so don't aim for perfection. How much junk does the average family lying around the house, which they have bought, haven't used, and don't need? I have plenty. And, if you want to see government waste, visit the country in which I live, whose citizens willing pay the highest taxes in the world.
The situation in the US is not about money; it's about power and politics...the usual game. The People have no say...until the next election, at which time most will vote against their own best interests.
