SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM
OPINION

The federal government has shut down all but non-essential services. The reason, of course, is that Congress and the President can not agree on a continuing resolution to pay the bills. While each side points fingers at the other, what really is the problem?

There are actually two problems causing this situation. One can be handled in a short time period while the other will likely take much longer. The first is that in a representative Democracy, which is what we practice here in the U.S., we elect people to represent the views of the majority of the people. This is done when we elect members of the House of Representatives every two years, Senators every six years and the President every four years. In each instance the individuals we elect are supposed to provide leadership.
