Elected officials need to fix mess they made

The fiscal cliff and national debt are a threat to the security of our nation. And the sickening part is our current and past politicians put us all here while an apathetic, complacent, procrastinating public stood by and let them. While it’s every politician’s duty to fix the problem our nation is embroiled in – and is about to devastate us all with this fiscal cliff – it is also every American’s duty to call our politicians and tell them to do their job.

I struggle paycheck to paycheck (unlike any of those grossly out of touch politicians) and if I had the performance record and satisfaction ratings these boobs had I’d be unemployed. Rep. John Boehner, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and all the other key players need to fix this or get out of the way and let someone who will. This problem was created by Democrats and Republicans (past and present). But every one of us let it happen. We need to call them all and tell them to do their job.
