What the Hell is the matter with our elected officials in Washington?
Let’s be brutally honest here from the perspective of both political parties. We haven’t had decent financial leadership in the Whitehouse since Ronald Reagan. Republicans have to take the blame for the exorbinhant spending they idly not only sat by and watched, but also participated in during the Bush years. Democrats should be incensed over the ridiculous attempts this administration is making to spend our way to prosperity. National healthcare, auto bailouts, bank bailouts, financing 11 million illegal border crossing criminals, and on and on.
Now, on top of everything else, the American taxpayers are very likely going to contribute 50 billion dollars of the 60 billion offered to Greece to prop up their economy and supposedly keep the country from collapsing. This comes on the heels of the news that Greece’s bond debt rating has been dropped to junk bond status.
I am puzzled about something. Haven’t we been in the worst recession here in the United States since the great depression? Is not business revenue down? Haven’t wages been frozen in many industries to try and cope with this down turn in the economy? Aren't we facing a huge tax hike already to finance all this wasteful spending? Why, Why, Why, do we continue to try and be big-brother to the entire world when we are on the verge of catastrophe here ourselves?
Call your Senators Baucus and Tester and tell them enough is enough. Call congressman Rehberg and ask him why he wasn’t as financially conservative during the Bush years as he is claiming to be now?
I have come to the conclusion the political party rhetoric by both the Democrats and Republicans is just a smoke screen to enable the 545 elected officials to continue to run rough-shod over the rest of us.
Call them, I did.
