We all built House America on blood and dreams. Like any house it needs maintaining.

Utah's congressional delegation seems determined to deny the money it takes to keep our roof repaired, the plumbing working and the termites controlled. Children, you've got to spend money on maintenance, rather than pick at the foundation.

Taxes built America. We don't like 'em, but with Congress' approval at less than 10 percent, we don't like you, either.

Members of Congress: Stop posturing, preening and pretending you're not part of the problem. Do your damn jobs. Open your minds and wallets, and keep America strong.
