The shutdown is over, and it’s spending as usual. We heard for 16 days that all the president and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid wanted was a clean continuing resolution. The Republican Party gave in only a day before potential victory and got handed a pork-filled CR. Did any of our local members of Congress stand up and say “no” to the pork?
We need responsible people in Washington, D.C., who understand that no matter how good an idea or program is, if there isn’t money it can’t be done – unless another already-funded program is cut.
We have a high taxation problem, a high moocher problem and a high debt problem. There is a need to cut, reduce and eliminate. Maybe the way to do it is put all-new people in D.C.
