Pols have made a complicated mess of everything

Editor,

Once again we have a prime example of the incompetence of our congressional representatives. They are in a "dither" to steer the nation away from the "fiscal cliff."

Where did this "fiscal cliff" come from? I have no recollection of ever hearing that term before, but they seem to want to justify their jobs and their abilities and prove to the nation that they are needed and busy. If there is a "fiscal cliff" they must have created it.

There is never, and I mean never, a doubt as to their receiving their wages or raises or elaborate benefits.

They stole our Social Security money and had no right to do so. They have made a complicated mess of the tax system when a very simple and fair solution is readily available.

They give away billions of our tax dollars with no accounting for how it was or is used and who benefitted from the "gift."

They spend more money on re-election expenses than they spend on necessary projects. If a government program is working well, they will change it if their party did not initiate the plan.

But, we re-elected our leaders (well, some people did), so just look the other way and ignore our money-grabbing legal system and the complicated mess they have made.

Happy New Year. Once again, we will muddle through.
