AICPA President: CPAs Are on the Verge of Anxiety Attacks Thanks to Federal Deficit

Barry Melancon speaks on behalf of all the CPAs, CGMAs across this great land who have had it up to here [bridge of nose] with Congress' inability to accomplish anything other than naming post offices:

“CPAs in communities large and small and from coast to coast are increasingly troubled by the government’s inability to come to grips with this economic calamity-in-the-making,” said AICPA President and CEO Barry Melancon, CPA, CGMA. “Knowing what’s at stake, three quarters of those taking part in our survey (76 percent) are sending a clear message to federal policy makers to deal with our debt crisis without delay. Fiscal responsibility is essential to our country’s economic sustainability.”
