Who’s on first…. republicans and democrats the new Abbott and Costello

January 21, 2018

….does the membership of congress truly believe the American public is so stupid they believe it is the republicans and President Trump who are responsible for the government shutdown? And does that same republican controlled congress think we believe they are doing any good for our nation by passing yet another budget extension…… apparently they do and we are!

I hate repeating myself but another budget extension is nothing more than our elected representatives kicking the can of responsibility down the road hoping they never have to pick it up and truly deal with it. The republicans now control both houses of congress and the White House and have the opportunity to work out and pass a budget for our nations future. One that will in the decades ahead stop us from spending more than we take in. But the republicans are afraid if they have to enact the spending cutbacks needed to balance a budget they will no doubt be out of a job at the next election. So they like those before them choose to pass yet another temporary spending bill.

Though the republicans are guilty of being cowards when it come to a budget, they are not the ones that shut down our nation is was the democrats. The republicans passed their watered down temporary budget in congress but when it got to the senate it was the democrats who attached the DACA rider thinking that the republicans would never shut down the government in an election year and have to pass the budget amendment with the DACA rider attached…..they were wrong.

So once again ‘we the people’ must suffer
from the games our elected representatives play
and yet it seems ‘we the people’
never learn our lesson and vote them out.

    You hit the nail dead on Pete!! The big bad guys in the room are the media for spreading their dis-information. I gave up long ago on getting anything approaching the truth from our media. They are now nothing more than the propaganda arm of the parties they serve. Their aim is to keep us divided so that we don’t wake up and throw ALL the bums out.

    All politicians love another vote for what they’ve “done” for their constituents, but it’s clear that the commucrats are far more concerned about illegals having a seat at the table than the taxpaying, 2-3 job-working legal citizen at the expense of our military & others. And, like Fred said, the Tokyo Rose media (the Collusion News Network) is squarely in their corner.

    NO DACA!!!!!!

    Well, okay, but I can’t help but note your bias coming through pretty clearly here, in what you did not say. You did not mention that Trump & Co. just passed a massive tax cut for the wealthy, with projections estimating that it will create somewhere around a $1.5 trillion deficit. In recent memory, it’s always been the tough-talking conservative Presidents (Reagan and Dubbya) who have racked up the biggest deficits and left with massive federal debt.

    What’s funny about what is happening now is that billionaires and the wealthy classes are, themselves, saying that they don’t need a tax cut, but Trump jammed it through anyway, with projections that he and his family will reap the benefits, to the tune of tens of millions of dollars.

    If you really cared about a balanced budget, why no attacks against the tax cut? Or did I miss something in this post or a previous post?
