Every once in a while I read, or hear, the statement: Washington is broken. And for the most part, everyone agrees that it’s broken, liberals and conservatives alike.
The thing I find interesting about this situation is that both sides want to treat the problem differently. Conservatives want the government to shrink, the idea being that smaller government will mean less broken. Liberals on the other hand, want to expand the government, essentially expanding the broken. Apparently liberals don’t care that the government is broken despite their complaints about it.
