According to the Webster online dictionary, “intervention” refers to a situation where a group of family or friends confront an individual with an addiction or behavioral problem to encourage them to address the issue. In this case, the issue at hand is Congress’s out-of-control deficit spending.

After reading Mr. Mason’s commentary you agree that something needs to be done to “cure” Congress’s deficit spending addiction, contact your congressman/congresswoman.
