ABSTRACT
The author criticizes U.S. political establishments particularly Congress that allegedly advocate solutions that are in reality big problems. It cites the failure of the supercommittee to reach a deficit-reduction deal, with healthcare providers left facing Medicare and other cuts while the rest endure another year of political bickering and fiscal uncertainty. He believes that politicians escape accountability because Americans have short memories and history is their least favorite subject.
