This is such a dog and pony show!! I have been watching this Congressional crap for days. Then the President comes out with his backdrop of middle-income people for a publicity stunt.
The war mongers coming out saying the military will be cut to shreds. I don’t believe that because they will be able to cut back on bases that are no longer needed. Or even pull out of areas that don’t want us there anyway, except for the money we give them. Another story.
None of these congressmen (perhaps a few) want to do anything except pad their own pockets. Even the President decided Congress was doing such a good job of drama he gave them a raise!! Whoopee.
Let the g-damn fiscal cliff go over the edge and at least we might see some spending cuts. The Senate, not the House, hasn’t managed to pass a budget in 4 years. Since when don’t we take care of our household budgets? Not the Congress, they apparently don’t need one and just keep printing money.
If there is anyone on the Congressional Hill reading this meager post … stick to your guns and don’t give in to increasing the debt ceiling and not cutting spending. Stop letting these guys SPEND more money!!! Look, no matter what the panic is to date (there have been many) let these cuts happen. This Congress cannot get a grip on reality and maybe if the cliff happens perhaps both the populace and Congress will GET IT.
Why do we need a crisis? Congress, particularly the Senate and ol’ Harry should have paid attention to a few things the House has put on their table back in May and even before. Duh.
