    Part of the deal of Change you can believe in was the promise of effective and responsive government.

    There's something to be said for having a president and an administration that actually believes that government has a vital role in serving the public, rather than a president who subscribes to the notion that your'e on your own.

    Reagan was fond of saying that government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem. Romney has adopted that saying.  They are wrong.  Government is not the problem; government run by politicians with indifference towards the public is the problem.

    Government can indeed work for the American people, and it can be effective, just not in the hands of Republican­s.
