So the big bipartisan Super Committee in the USA, that was supposed to find spending cuts in the wake of the budget deal compromise and subsequent credit-rating debacle, has disbanded over their partisan differences.
Why am I not surprised? There might have been a time in US history not too long ago when the two parties could bridge their differences, but not anymore. The rot of partisan politics is crippling the US government and is splitting apart and ruining the United States. Common sense seems to have left the building.
