SSDD from Washington
My mother always said…’if you don’t have anything good to say, don’t say anything’. So I had to think if this posting should see the light of day, because a couple things have me wanting to pull out my 44 and fire a few rounds in the direction of the Philadelphia Eagles and some congressman and senators but not necessarily in that order. Yes one of the things that has me hot under the collar is the trashing the Eagles took from Denver, but it’s the Eagles so I guess I should expect some humiliation during the season.
I know you expect me to say that the shutting down of the government by our representatives is number two on my list, but even that I can live with if they accomplish something while shut down. It is partially the fact that these same representatives are guaranteed a pay check even if the government is shut down. But mostly because of the games they are playing with the budget extension, where both sides are willing to pass a budget extension but one side wants to stop or slow the new health care act.
WHY another extension? If they are willing to shut down the federal government over health care why not use that time to balance the budget? I do not know if the new health care act is going to work, but seeing that it is set up to be funded just like the social security system, of the many paying for the few, we know it will be a disaster. Based on this alone a one year delay to prove it will not support itself is warranted.
However since I am able to see into the future I know what will happen. Each side will blame the other for the shut down and eventually they will approve an extension without even trying to balance the budget. In a couple weeks they will also make a big deal about raising the debt limit but again they will pass an increase.
Never caring that nothing has been solved.
Never thinking of the future generations that will suffer
They will go back on the campaign trail
and beat their chests and say
look at how I held my ground for you!
