I am not the most literate person to talk about economy, but with so much talk about the stimulus package I decided to read about it and was intrigued by what happened in Congress this past week.
“The Senate approved its bill most along party lines, by a vote of 61 to 37, with three Republicans joining 56 Democrats and two independents in favor.” Republicans say that there are philosophical differences that kept more republicans from voting, besides they think that the package is too expensive and it would cost future generations a lot. But, why can’t we just get along?
I keep thinking if all that or just half of it is true? Are these chosen people really working together or just pretending they are? It is funny to think that Americans often say that the United States is “a melting pot” and that every race and culture should be respected and that we should work for the common good. However, is that really happening in the government? I am not saying that one should abandon their values and totally agree with another party just because they are supposed to work together, but how about being less focused on which party you belong to and actually accepting good ideas and implementing good initiatives instead of not agreeing just because “he does not wear the same color as you do.”
I have been living here in this “melting pot” for almost ten years and often hear, “she is republican”, or “he is a democrat”, when in reality they are all Americans and should do what is better for the country, is that utopia? When it comes to the Congress, the Senate, I believe that it should be about honesty, fulfilling the job you where chosen to do. Furthermore, if we are expected to respect each other and live day to day with each other, and it doesn’t matter where our ancestors came from, why our government cannot do the same? They all sing the same anthem and pledge alliance to the same flag.
So, why can’t we all just get along??
