I write this believing (and hoping) that most Americans will agree with the content.
Barack Obama has again announced that he is not interested in cutting out wasteful spending if the legislation does not include another tax increase on those who are successful. He seems to forget that he increased taxes on the wealthiest Americans last year, or perhaps he thinks we have forgotten. At any rate, he says he will not sign any legislation, regardless of how good it might be, if it doesn’t punish the rich.
We, the American people know that Congress is not helpless! You do not have to have the signature of Barack Obama on a piece of legislation in order for it to pass. You only need a 2/3 majority vote.
Will you please get busy, write a simple piece of legislation that cuts wasteful spending, puts Medicare and Social Security in a secure place, and begins to balance our budget in this country? Please make it simple, without any pork, read it on the floor and then pass it with expediency. This is why we sent you to Washington. It is time for you to get the job done or get ready to go home when you are up for re-election.
If you are a Democrat don’t worry about Democrats turning on you. Democrats want this country saved just as much as Republicans do. If Obama won’t lead, then you should lead. The majority of us are not stupid.
When Obama says things like:
Republicans “ask nothing of the wealthiest Americans or biggest corporations, so the burden is all on first responders or seniors or middle-class families,” Obama said. “They double down, in fact, on the harsh, harmful cuts that I’ve outlined.”
We all know this is political malarkey. Both Democrats and Republicans want America to work and work for everyone. We know this is just scare tactics and divisive tactics being used to keep Americans fighting with one another while he pushes his socialist agenda. We have had enough. Look at the comments on the liberal site, Huff-Post, when they write about the ‘sequester’. This should help everyone in Washington know that the folks have had enough. Not just Republicans, but Independents and Democrats have had enough. Now we are looking to Congress and we are expecting you to do your job.
