Let's Meet for Cup of Tea & Discuss the Budget

 

Having grown up in a family that could sit down over cup of coffee/tea and hash out our differences, I find it so incomprehensible that our elected officials in Washington can't do the same.   I will even supply the tea. 

 

Which flavor should I buy? Tea

 

Oh, I was just informed that there is 'No room for compromise.' 

If the entire country does not agree, then 'Tough.  We will shut down the entire country until we get our way.' 

 

This does not sound like the democracy I grew up with. 

 

I also learned how to compromise in our family of six.  No one got their way all the time.  As kids we did our share of squabbling, but today we love to get together as a family.  We respect each other's viewpoint and choices without expecting total agreement. 

How can we get our elected officials to work together for the good of everyone?

I wish they would sit down and have some coffee/tea so they would reach to a decision faster.  I would have Chi Tea.

Lizette--I love Chi Tea, too.  Although it was out of stock yesterday.  Would Constant Comment be okay?  Let's keep our fingers crossed for late agreement miracle.

I like Earl Grey Mary. I do wish the government would put aside personal aggendas and do what's best for 'we the people'...

Mary,

For a minute I thought you were inviting us to a tea party about taxes.

That was a close call (smile),

Lemon Zinger and Tension Tamer are my favorites, Mary. Maybe you have some "Working for the People" in your cabinet you could serve up?

Carol--Both kinds are tasty.  Glad most real estate deals are easier than federal budget negotiations.

Mary,

Perhaps a little whiskey in their tea to show some spirit! I'm not happy with anyone in politics right now.

Love it Patricia,  It might loosen them up a bit.  I agree with your last statement.  I am not happy with anyone either and my husband said the same thing Friday evening.

Mary, Well, I just poured a cup of Constant Comment.  And I completely agree with Patricia's comment.

Hi Gary,  And I bought Constant Comment today.  Give me a minute to brew a cup and I will join you.

Ditto to all the comments made here.  'We the People' are ready to speak up.
