Children’s author Diane Hanny: What is going on in Washington?

Children’s author Diane Hanny says she’s confused about the budget talks and debt-limit debate:

What is going on in Washington, DC?  Our leaders can’t seem to agree on anything, except that we have a money problem.  People laughed when Donald Trump said he was running for President of the United States.   However, he is an excellent  businessman, and that might be just what we need. 

I don’t know much about politics, so forgive me if I make foolish comments regarding such things.  I thought I was a strong Republican,  until I found out that they want to cut Medicare and Social Security.  Then they want to continue to give huge tax breaks to the wealthy and special interest groups.  My husband and I live on Social Security.  That doesn’t make sense to me, make the rich richer and the poor poorer.   I guess if you are rich that works for you, but not for most Americans.
