Anyone Is Better Than What We Have Now!

April 12, 2011

Yes folks, “Anyone is better than what we have now”  is the response I am receiving from individuals all across this great land we call America. With the 2012 election cycle moving into gear many individuals are dissatisfied with the President and his policies.

Since Obama has been elected our country has spiraled out of control with expansive increases in government spending, the apology tour and the continuation of wars in the Middle East of which he campaign to stop the wars over there not extenuate them with complacency.

Remember he received a Noble Peace Prize for his prolific thoughts on a war free world or just the fact that those on the panel that hands out these prizes hated Bush so much they just wanted to show him a thing or two about just how powerful they were. Thus a million dollar bounty just for thinking about peace.

Now two years later we have amassed 5 trillion more dollars in debt with a 4 trillion-dollar budget being proposed by the White House.  I don’t want to beat this thing to death but I have to say we borrow 43 cents out of every dollar we spend so the individuals across the country want someone new that will reduce the spending and size of the bureaucracy.


Are You Listening!

On the floor in the House today both sides discussed amendments to the Neighborhood Stabilization Program which the Republicans want to defund and save taxpayers 1 billion dollars of the 7 billion dollar program.  Sides are passionately debating what should be done with the billion dollars that are left in the program thus far unspent.  To the Democrats and Republicans alike elected by the people,  ARE YOU LISTENING!

We are a bankrupt nation do you not remember! We continue to borrow 43 cents out of every dollar spent in the Halls of Congress.  We now are over 12 trillion dollars in debt with just under 2 trillion this past year. Finally we have over 112 trillion, that is 11.2 billion billion dollars in unfunded mandates which are or will be due within the next ten years. Congress ARE YOU LISTENING!

Stop spending what you don’t have! Balance the budget and spend only what you need to spend. The times are hard and we as a nation need leaders how understand entitlements are not part of our Constitution.  We can not continue to fund programs that do not perform functions relegated by our Constitution.

If there is blight in neighborhoods let the local, county or city government handle the problem.  The Federal Government does not need to buy these properties nor offer money to others to buy them. WE are a broke nation, let’s act like one and do what is finally right for the citizens and the States.  Congress, ARE YOU LISTENING!

National Flood Insurance Program is in trouble according to hearings on the Hill today.  They have 18 billion dollar debt with taxpayers on the hook for approximately 5 million homeowners who have this federal flood insurance.

Experts stated the rates must increase so private insurance companies will offer flood insurance so the government won’t have so many policies. Here is another example of government involvement putting  taxpayers on the hook for billions just like the postal service.
