After listening to Obama's state of the union address last night and then reading about the Senate's vote to raise our national debt another 1.9 trillion dollars - I feel sick, VERY, VERY SICK! The Senate purposely shoved this through before Scott Brown was seating. Knowing full well, he would vote against it.
Have all the Dems lost their minds? Why did Obama even talk about fiscal responsibility and that tiny spending freeze, when all along they planned on voting for raising our debt?
Obama did nothing but regurgitate his old campaign speeches. Are people really buying this new round of hollow promises, when he hasn't lived up to any of them to date?? Loved it when he said he'd go through the budget line by line. Didn't he promise that during his campaign? Why hasn't he been doing that already? Oh yeah, and we'll now have transparency. Yeah, when pigs fly. And definitely no more earmarks. Where did we hear that one? Oh yeah - all those months of campaigning about how how he was going to "change" how Washington does business. The Dems must think Americans are idiots!
I find this whole mess to be extremely worrisome. I really thought that after the last elections, with conservatives speaking very loud & clear with their votes, Obama & the Dems would at least move a bit more to the center. The message is STOP THE SPENDING! You'd think Obama & the Dems would finally hear the message. And who the heck besides China is going to continue lending us money?
What in the world is it going to take to wake them all up? Guess November can't come soon enough to get rid of them all.
