Dear Mr President of the United Utates of America, I approve of your work so far. And while I am not an american, I do have very close ties to your wonderful country. There is just one piece of advice, or rather, one request I have: Toughen up on the republican congress!
I mean really, the way that they blockaded the raise of the debt ceiling was behaviour more fit for 3 year old children. What could you have done?
Your treasury was scrounging up money elsewhere before you could take on more debt. Instead of ravaging your social security funds, why not freeze congresspeoples pay? Put their health benefits on hold? Let them pay for their motorcades and security. Let them feel the crunch first next time.
