Wish I could say that Congress stagnating itself over a budget surprises me at all, but how long has it been since both parties (and the handful of independents out there) actually agreed upon something? Have they ever?

I was with Head Start for 7 years and it was the most rewarding experience I've ever had working with the children and their families. More money and more time and energy should be put into the program. Why does the government try to change things that don't need change?
