Make Fiscal Health Our Main Priority
Nero fiddled while Rome burned. Obama and Congress meddled while our country melted down.
The incandescent light bulb is mandated for replacement as it is replaced by the very dangerous compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) starting Jan. 1, 2012. Since when do light bulbs take precedence over the passage of the country’s annual budget?
Or, how about Congress meddling in the purchase of washing machines, eliminating the top-loaded machine in favor of the side-loading machine? Does this take priority over the reduction of the country’s deficit as the country wavers on the precipice of bankruptcy?
Are the Democrats serious about cutting our $1.5 trillion deficit by a paltry $7 billion? Do they believe baby aspirin will cure terminal cancer? Do they really care about our country’s survival?
However, congratulations to President Obama for creating a nonpartisan deficit reduction commission that was headed by super patriots, Democrat Erskine Bowles and Republican Alan Simpson. After months of study, well-considered recommendations have been made, but they have brought no action. Both Bowles and Simpson placed country above politics, but they have been thwarted by a president who continues to place politics over the country’s welfare. We are in desperate need for a leader, but Obama fiddles around while the country burns.
Incidentally, what are Obama’s 34 czars up to? For the most transparent administration in history, how about having these czars let us know what they are doing and how many millions they have cost us so far?
Are you worried over the future of our country? I am!
