Fix it

To the Editor:

Years ago, we had a meltdown at the company where I was employed.

The situation went from bad to worse. Everyone seemed to be blaming each other. The company owner (our boss) called all department heads together and endured all of the excuses, finger-pointing, blaming, egos, lies, etc., in a very long meeting. The boss did not take sides or judge who was responsible.

Finally, after a very long silence, he stood up, looked us each in the eye and said two words, “Fix it,” then walked out. We knew what the possible consequences were if we did not comply.

This taxpayer, and many like me all over the country, is saying the following to those in Washington, Springfield, etc., that we employ: “Fix it.” You made the mess, now fix the mess. Remember, you work for us.
