Politicians say solutions aren't simple, but they really are. If you make something complicated you are almost always doing one of two things. You are either trying to hide or cover-up some previous mistake or malfeasance. Or you have something hidden in the solution for somebody else you want to pay back. Both are common in Washington as well as state government. Do you realize that our Political leaders do things everyday that would get you and I fired in the real world "we" live in? A politicians vote is for sale on almost every bill that is introduced. This is the way it happens; Politician "A" tells Politician "B" that he will vote for his healthcare bill if he intern will vote for a new park or something he is proposing. Well we need the healthcare bill so bad that Politician "B" agrees. Politician "A" just sold his vote and intern bought votes in his own community in the next election. You see Politician "B" has a bill that will stand on it's on and pass but Politician "A" has a bill that benefits no one but him in a reelection bid, so he needs some leverage or he needs someone to hide it in a good piece of legislation so it will slip through unnoticed. That's the way it really works in our Government folks. Sounds dishonest don't it? A rose by any other name is a rose folks!
Now let's say Joe is the purchasing agent for a large company in the good ole United States of America. Joe's company needs a thousand computers. Well Joe wants a pool at his new home. So Joe tells the salesman of the computers over lunch one day that he would love to give the contract to buy a thousand computers to his company, BUT. The salesman says "what but?" Joe says that he and his wife really might like a pool if it could be tucked into the deal somewhere. The salesman looking at a two MILLION dollar order says that can be arranged. Now the company really needs a thousand computers and the order would be great for any vender to get. There is no way Joe's company could see the benefit for everyone in him having a pool. So Joe is the only one who will benefit from the pool. Joe has two options; he can go to JAIL or go to Washington D.C. as one of our trusted leaders. It's clear he understands Politics and has the right mindset for the job. If it was my company, Joe would be "under" the jail! By the way lobbyist work the same way. If we ran a business like the government is run we would be in prison for life.
