  • LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Pray for leaders’ success in office

  • To the editor,

    With the election over, it’s a new day in Washington. Or is it? We have the same players: same president, same GOP House and Democratic Senate. They realize that they’re staring at fiscal disaster by year’s end if no deal is reached on the deficit, taxes, and spending.

  • To the editor,
    With the election over, it’s a new day in Washington. Or is it? We have the same players: same president, same GOP House and Democratic Senate. They realize that they’re staring at fiscal disaster by year’s end if no deal is reached on the deficit, taxes, and spending.
    Yet, a new day could happen, for a couple of reasons. One, Pres. Obama no longer faces re-election and will take the leadership role in trying to arrive at a settlement with the congressional leaders. House Speaker John Boehner called the President personally the day after the election, offering to work out a responsible fiscal compromise, realizing that both sides may be in for some tough choices.  A second reason for probable progress this time involves the Pres. once again. He has an added incentive to “make this work” for he has his legacy to consider, his place in history. He knows that he has four years to get this country on the right track and it will require working with Republicans in a positive way to secure results.
    As Americans, we stand to benefit from any specific compromises that they achieve. We should pray for their success.
