The people we send to Washington, D.C. to do a job for us, must think that they are playing chess and that we are the pawns, that can be move only one space at a time and they jump all around us at the speed of light.
They have gotten away with their shenanigans for so long that they don’t believe that we can do anything to stop them. The politicians get elected and expect to be able to spend the rest of their lives in office. If it were completely up to me I would throw two-thirds of them out of D.C. They are actually do nothing, easy money grubbing individuals. Why do we keep relying on them to do something substantial and we know that they will never do anything that will improve everyone’s economic situation.
For the small amount of work that they seem to be doing, they all deserve “F’s” This budget thing that they are said to have agree to should have been completed the last time it came up. Both sides know that we are in deep financial trouble and the economy is going down the tube. They keep putting a bandaid on it which will only stay on the sore for six, eight, or twelve months.
Our main thing is, we, as the general public, that have the greatest need for relief, are getting nothing from the Republicans, and the Democrats are going full speed ahead in their spending mode. We all know that there has been too much spending in Washington. The strength of the U.S. Dollar in the world has been going down for the past ten to twenty years. If it continues we will be in very deep trouble in the near future. There will be a big change in the financial power of the world. The U.S. Dollar will no longer be the monetary figure which everything is measured against. As a matter of fact it is failing at this moment.
You see, many things that are happening to us that each side of the aisle is blaming on the opposite side. The Republicans are saying that Obama Care is crippling us. That it will not work, what the GOP won’t tell everyone is that Obama Care is the fact of the matter is, it is modeled after Romney Care. That is the truth, Obama Care is modeled after Massachusett’s medical care law. This law is the baby of former governor Mitt Romney and voted on by the people of Massachusett, AND IT IS WORKING in that state. So why are the Republicans saying that it is bad for the country? Well lets take a look at what they did. To start with they enacted the law, then they got assistance from the federal government to help them finance the bill. The United States has no one to loan them the money to help with the health bill.
Then when it comes to knowledge of what is happening, they hide many of the truths of the matter. They don’t tell us that Romney Care is well and is working in Massachusetts and the people of that state love it.
They (the Republicans) don’t tell you that it is working so well that nearly 100% of the people in that state have medical care. They don’t tell you that he would repeal Obama Care and let each state find it’s own solution.
Since Romney Care came into effect, approximately six years have passed and in Massachusetts the people that are covered went from about 90% to approximately 98%. AND THE STATE IS NOT BROKE YET.
Gov. Deval Patrick (D), governor of Massachusetts said that he cannot understand how Mitt Romney (R), Ex-Gov., can be so against something that he started in Massachusetts, that is working so well, and that is making progress on the federal level.
The Republicans will try, and LIE, and do anything to get President Obama out of office and make him a “One Term President”. Their thing is to, go against any and everything he (Obama) tries to do, even if you like it.
They say that he is too easy on the countries that are driving the price of our gasoline up. They want to know why he is against opening up the Gulf to more drilling and what does he have against the pipeling from Canada. Why not do more drilling on the North Slope of Alaska? There are legitimate answers to all of these questions. Just think of how progress as effected the landscape of the United States in the pass when people did not think very far ahead as to what the consequence of their actions would do to the country. Where are the Passenger Pigeons now? What almost happened to the Grey Wolf, the Bison, the Alligator, and our national bird, the Bald Eagle. Forward thinking people saved all of them.
They want to know why he does not take military action against some of the countries that are killing their people and also killing some of ours. Well we just got our troops out of Iraq and the advisors that were left there are now getting killed
Iran is doing everything possible to draw the United States in war, but President Obama is trying to keep a level head. We don’t need another war at this time of economic recovery. We are deep enough in the hole as it is.
Well, these and other arguments have been going on for years and years and will be going on as long as man, (and woman) are here on earth.
