The papers, television and radio have been full of experts, pundits, letter writers, etc. all talking about one thing: how senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz don’t understand “how thing get done” in Washington. They are probably right. Senators Cruz and Lee are not Washington insiders. They aren’t good at smoke-filled rooms and backroom deals. Perhaps they aren’t talking to Washington insiders but the American people. To the Washington insiders, it’s all a big game. Who scores the most points? Who is up in the polls and down? I am not sure the American people see it as a game? It is possible that they view uncontrolled government spending as irresponsible and dangerous?
