Reader Input: Please govern for the future

-A +A

Our leaders in Washington have known what would happen if they didn’t solve the fiscal cliff since August of 2011. Yet, we have about three weeks until we hit the deadline, and they still aren’t working together.

No Labels is calling for a new understanding of leadership: They need to govern for the future, not the next election.

They need to put the country first instead of fighting for political advantage.

Our leaders need to accept the responsibility they were given: to solve problems.

Lastly, the leadership of both parties needs to work together to get anything done.
