Work Statement

A comment on the current state of the U.S. and it's two major political parties, whose motivations (or lack thereof) are put ahead of their constituent's interest and well-being. Instead of a unified nation working together to make progress in a less than stellar economic situation, the parties and its members are selfishly moving in opposite directions, leaving the welfare of the nation behind.
