US lurching from 'crisis to crisis:' Doer

WINNIPEG - Canada's ambassador to the United States says the American political system is heavily influenced by money and is lurching from one budgetary crisis to the next.


WINNIPEG - Canada's ambassador to the United States says the American political system is heavily influenced by money and is lurching from one budgetary crisis to the next.

Gary Doer told a gathering in Winnipeg that Washington hasn't passed a budget in four years.

He says there have been five budgetary crises since he's been there and there is a sixth one looming.

Doer says politicians can simply vote down budgets without consequence.

He calls the influence money has in the American political system "quite remarkable."

Doer says it is incredible the amount of money third-parties spend to quote — "buy votes" — before joking that he couldn't say that out loud.
