2bnaked saidThe question remains. What did Washington really accomplish for "WE THE PEOPLE"/ Seriously guys, we are part of the system and yet it seems we are all scratching our heads.
What's good for some people ain't necessarily good for some others. For example, while you are punching the air because gas dropped below $2.00 a gallon, some oil worker in Texas is miserable because he's now out of a job. Everyone has differing priorities. You'd have to be very naive to think government can meet the expectations of everyone.
While I agree with the correctness of your overall premise, your specific example may not be.
Oil workers are enjoying a bonanza, as US domestic oil production ramps up to record levels, accounting for the fall in gasoline prices at the pump. If an oil worker should lose his job in Gov. Rick Perry's dystopian State of Texas, he can find work in western North Dakota, that is seeing their biggest oil boom in history, with workers flooding in as fast as the oil is flowing out.
The ones who might be hurting are oil market speculators. Well, that's the free market, right? But even the producers are doing well in the US. It's suppliers like OPEC and Russia who are hurting, and that's fine with me.
