ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Anyone with common sense knows that the best way to get the economy moving again is to make all previous tax cuts permanent. In addition, failing businesses - including banks, insurance companies and automakers - must go into bankruptcy and reorganize if they can, or else go out of business.

Change in the new administration apparently does not include honesty and integrity. Just as no business is too big to fail, elected and appointed officials are not too important to be denied important positions in the government.

We have to live by the rules. Why not those in leadership positions? When asked to deal with the housing problem, Congress did nothing. Then they wanted to throw the earnings of our great-grandchildren at the problem to see what happens.

Give us the permanent tax cuts and stop throwing money around, and we will make the economy work.
