    as long as catastrophe doesn't strike during their own political tenures, politicians are and will be more than happy to kick this can down the road.

    There's simply no reward for taking a brave stand in public office any longer.  You can duck the big issues and get spat upon be a few, or tackle them full on and get spat upon by everyone.

    That's why we have such controversy phobic "leaders" these days...we have conditioned them to be that way.
