Democrats kick the can [Reader Post]

Arguably the most consistent practice on the part of democrats and this administration is to avoid doing the necessary and important things.

Democrats have a long history of avoiding the really important issues. They denied anything was wrong at Fannie and Freddie and hijacked every effort to reform the GSE’s all the while the country was circling the bottom of the toilet. They have failed to produce a budget for more than 700 days. Democrats blocked George Bush’s effort to reform Social Security, but had nothing better to offer either then or now. Bush’s effort to reform Social Security died because Bush had the audacity to insist that the Social Security system be solvent over the long term. Bush did not want to play kick the can down the road.
