The idiot brigade known as the House and Senate after working only 80 some days, left town in a helluva hurry, with most of their work unfinished and laying on their desk so they could take advantage of a 5 week vacation (they work so hard you know), and are now back in town only long enough to try and hammer out some form of continuing resolution to keep the government funded for another six months and then will leave town so they can go home and campaign for re-election once again.
We pay these weasels $180K per year for a 93 day a year work schedule, they vote their own pay raises, their own health care system, and their own retirement system plus the aforementioned five week summer vacation, which is a lot more lavish than anything we get, so my question becomes;
Why do the American people blindly keep re-electing these bums (both sides of the aisle), when these bastards are as useless as boobs on a brahma bull?
In terms of cutting expenses, the first place we should start making cuts is the House and Senate members, and their staffs.
An immediate 50% pay and expense cut for all Senators and Congress members and their respective staffs, and that is just for openers.
Bring our troops home, and get us the hell out of the U.N., and make the U.N. move off shore.
Immediately cut ALL aid to illegals and their anchor baby kids, and make it illegal to hire them, or rent to them and no Emergency Room treatment (they will damn soon find their own way back to the border), that would take care of another 350 billion dollars a year which could be applied to paying down the national debt.
January 3rd, 2007, was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress:
The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77
The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%
The Unemployment rate was 4.6%
George Bush’s Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB CREATION!
Now comes the good part boys and girls, the part the Lame Stream Media didn’t, and still doesn’t want to talk about.
This was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee, and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.
These two financial geniuses (read that incompetent crooks), were the main players in the implosion of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
Bush asked Congress 17 times to stop Fannie & Freddie – starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy). Barney blocked it and called it a “Chicken Little Philosophy” (and the sky did fall!).
Who fought against reforming Fannie and Freddie?
OBAMA and the Democrats, especially BARNEY, and who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac?
OBAMA of course!
Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 was the Democratic Party, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 & 2009 as well as 2010 & 2011.
For 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 spending plan (we have not had a budget in over 1200 days).
If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.
The reason I bring this up again is two-fold.
First: A lot of folks don’t know this because the Lame Stream Media never saw fit to print it or broadcast it on TV.
Second: I have been watching Obama break in with his adverts on TV four and five times a night in which he keeps telling us that the wealthy have to pay their fair share in order to pay down HIS giant deficits in an orderly manner.
Get a clue you worthless piece of DREK, the wealthy (you know the ones who invest in businesses and hire workers) already pay most of the taxes as it is, so who are you trying to con?
Bill Clinton back in the nineties was using that same old tired line about the wealthy must be made to pay their fair share. You guys really need to get a life, and get a new line.
“We the People” would really like to hear your definition of “their fair share”, and tell us how you arrive at whatever bogus figure you come up with, and what magic formula you used to get there.
Barry, you have added more debt to our economic load than all the other Presidents in the history of this country combined, and you have done it in the short space of 3 ½ years, and now you expect us to blindly hand you another four years so you can continue raping this country into oblivion.
Remove your brainless head from whatever sphincter you have it buried in. IT AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN
WAKE UP AMERICA!!!
