I have a question for all of those who voted for the abysmal legislation raising the debt ceiling. If as you are now saying at every turn, it isn’t the best bill, why did you vote for it? Is admitting that you supported and knowing signed a failed bill supposed to indemnify you from our wrath? Or do you expect that by saying that we will feel sorry for you?
The bottom line is that Boehner and congress sold us out. Instead of doing what was right, they did what was expedient and we, our children and grandchildren will pay for it.
the numbers we are seeing at this point indicate $7T in additional debt even as Reid plans to implement Obama’s tax increases through the backdoor, just what was accomplished. In the mean time business goes on as usual, spending hasn’t stopped, and even worse no one is asking where and how the cuts are coming from.
I personally am tired of hearing “we know it’s not a good deal, but this is the best we could get.” I’m tired of hearing the word compromise when it comes to the interest of the nation. I’m tired of being shafted by those we elect, then have them tell us we should feel bad for them.
The late evangelist Rev. J. Vernon McGee used to say: “In olden days we had wooden ship and men of iron, today we steel ships and paper dolls.” And that’s precisely what Boehner and Cantor are. I warned about them 2 years ago – I was right then, I’m right now.
What Boehner did is paramount to what Roman Polanski did, the basic difference being he ran off to France to avoid prosecution. The question here is, will you let them run off and hide behind lies and obfuscation, or will you make them pay November 2012? Just remember, the only way you housebreak a dog is by putting your foot down, and if that doesn’t work, you either put it outside or get rid of it.
