http://www.cleveland.com/opinion/index.ssf/2011/09/in_dc_theyre_still_spinning_th.htmlThe grim reality that 46 million Americans live in poverty and that one in six working-age adults is either unemployed or underemployed ought to permeate our national conversation. One reason this summer's debt-ceiling crisis left such a sour taste is that citizens wanted their leaders to do what needed to be done -- pay long-standing obligations with a minimum of posturing -- and then get on to the heavy lifting of encouraging job creation.
Americans don't need a replay of this summer's dysfunction. They need leaders who are willing to borrow ideas from one another, eschew litmus tests and just maybe prod the economy out of this awful rut.
