The other day I told my husband that the credit crisis could be solved if the members of Congress were to be fired if they don't pass a plan. If they are incapable of doing their job, they should step down.
This morning, I came across a quote by Waren Buffet.
“I could end the deficit in 5 minutes. You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP all sitting members of congress are ineligible for reelection.”
In the video below, Mr. Buffet speaks about the importance of fulfilling promises, which is what was discussed in parshat Masei this past Shabbos. The parsha begins with the issue of vows and oaths. "When a man makes a vow to Hashem or swears an oath to make something forbidden, he shall not break his word; all that was pronounced from his mouth must be fulfilled. [30:3]"
