@ Chumpley -- it's getting to the point now where it is the americans not
the hispanics that are getting the governemt help especially here in Utah. The
reason is - if your white you won't be hired for a job, you must be able to
speak spanish fluently but not english. It's to the point that american
born citizens are being discriminated against just as the hispanics were
discriminated against because they couldn't speak english back in the 70s.
Being able to speak english is no longer considered a "skill" but
speaking spanish is. American citizens are the ones now seeking help in the form
of food stamps, rental assistance, medical. And not all those who are poor
qualify for food stamps or even medicaid.
Fred, House Republicans passed a budget every year, while the President and the
Democratic Senate has failed to perform one of their Constitutional duties by
failing to present and pass a budget for 3 years. Oops, I am sorry, the
President actually did present a budget...which was so poorly done that not a
single Democrat voted for it.The President failed for 4 years to
work on immigration reform. He called for a study by past leaders to study how
to balance the budget, then he failed to adopt any of the recommendations.The president has not led. He has done nothing. Your finger pointing
Hopefully something get's done we cannot afford to finance medical and
social program for people that are not paying their own way. Mr.Obama was
totally against Arizona trying to take care of a problem the State could not
afford. If immigrants are going to come here to live they should expect to pay
taxes and carry their own weight. As a country it has been proven that we have
alot of people that could be productive, but find it easier to mooch off
Government, and those that are working and paying taxes.We need some common
sense here people we all need to do our own share.It is not a partisan matter
its about being a good citizen.
Good to know that Mr. Boehner is not going to let losing an election keep him
from playing partisan politics. Mr. Boehner has had no opinion on anything for
the last 6 months, but now every hour on the hour he has a new statement about
what the President should do about this that or the other. Does he have any
opinions on what he and the do nothing congress could do to solve problems.
Before you start I know he and the tea party gang passed a budget they and other
legislation they knew had no chance of passing in the Senate. That is not
leadership, that is obstructionism. If the republicans had all both houses and
the presidency then they wouldn't need to compromise, but when they only
have one house, if they want to accomplish something they need to work with the
other side. I agree that the President should lead, but I also
believe that the Speaker of the House should be a leader as well, and what he is
doing now is not leadership.
