Pols, constituents on collision course

The country has a deficit of more than $2 trillion. It is projected to grow to more than $12 trillion in coming years! Social Security has been on the verge of collapse for a number of years, but Democrats would allow no fix, instead using any attempt to rescue it as a political weapon.

Medicare is at least $50 trillion in deficit, and possibly as much as $100 trillion! It is projected to be completely insolvent in six years Yet, $470 billion was taken from Medicare to fund portions of the new health bill! Congress has authorized, and the president has signed, an additional $155 billion for "job creation." Government jobs? We now are dependent on communist China to fund our debt!

In order to get to 60 Senate votes to pass the abominable health care bill, Democrats have acted like ladies of the night plying their trade and have prostituted their votes. This is bribery, but the Justice Department is too corrupt to act!

Are there any Democrats with integrity? Are there any who listen to their constituents? Are there any who put country above party? Are there any with respect for taxpayer money? Apparently not!

This is all about satisfying the narcissistic ego of one man. The president himself has no allegiance to, nor love for, this country, and obviously sees America as an evil presence in the world. He just dares not say it aloud. When he sat for 20 years at the feet of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who constantly damned America, he was surely in total agreement with everything the minister was saying.

This administration and this Congress, by their arrogant abuses of power, have set themselves on a collision course with the people they are supposed to govern, and whose consent it is supposed to seek!
