A Great Closing Paragraph

From Ezra Klein´s Wonkbook. After itemizing EZ problems he writes about the US:

Here at home, we have vastly easier decisions to make and little evident ability to make them. We’re well into December and the payroll tax cut hasn’t been extended, there’s little talk of unemployment benefits getting a reprieve, a series of deficit-reduction commissions have failed, and it was only four months ago that we almost defaulted on our debt. The United States of America, with one government, one language, and one people, can hardly do the easy stuff. The Eurozone, with 17 different governments, now has to do some unimaginably hard stuff. Marry Christmas, politicians.
