The State of our Union by Brett Alan Bern

brett-bern-unionIt’s not good. At all.

In all of my years, I have never seen such dysfunction from our government. It’s pathetic and we should be ashamed of our elected officials.

I thought Obama’s speech last night was good. But it was just a speech. State of the Union addresses are a concept whose time has come to put to rest.

We don’t need the speeches and the round of applause (or lack thereof).

We need execution. We need leadership.

We need the rich to pay their fair share and the poor to bust your ass to get out of your shitty situation.

We need financial regulation so Wall Street can’t screw us again.

We need a less complicated tax rate so EVERYBODY has some skin in the game.

We need to take care of our own and stop worrying about every other country out there.

We need help.

Frustratingly yours,

Brett Alan Bern
