Covering their own

Dear Editor:

Congress hosts the State of the Union address, and President Obama totally forgets to mention that Congress has been failing its performance audits for years. He had company. No one else in government, the press or the public mentioned it.

And no one realized that the president was leading a major cover-up of our dysfunctional government. Obama might have spared Congress because it would make him seem mean-spirited to accept their hospitaity and then offend the dignity and respect of this august body. And both political parties did not try to clean house and change the incumbents in the last election.

A major failure and a cover-up are not signs of a healthy union, they are signs of a sick state.
