Last Friday President Obama went on vacation but before he did he said “Oops, that projected ten year deficit is now $9 trillion dollars, not seven.”
That’s the deficit. The national debt is even higher than that. But not by much.
Now, as much as I like pounding on the Obama administration, which is doing a whole lot of bad things and trashing our economy in the process. But, the fact is the problems were started long before Obama and the Democrat congress. The fact is both parties are responsible. Neither could have done it without the other. The votes weren’t there in most Congresses for one party to do it until this congress.
The Democrats supported Bush’s war spending, Republicans supported some of Clinton’s plans. We have all these RINOS who still talk about working with Democrats on the Healthcare mess.
The simple fact is pork and earmarks are a problem that only seems to be getting worse and they are not listening to us anymore.
We need to clean house in 2010. All the spenders and ideologues need to go. We need a fresh start,
Start looking for fresh faces, independents, libertarians, whoever seems sane and willing to listen. It’s time for a purge of the old and the bought and paid for.
Those who survive the purge need to do that with a fear of the voter. They need to know whos boss.
