The national debt continues to grow at an astonishing rate, and Ryan-Murray does
little to slow it down. However, for Bailout Bob it is the compromise that
counts. There are 17 trillion reasons why I think he is too easily satisfied.
The only problem is this deal wasn't vetted by the regular process for
committee hearings, etc. Plus the screw job it did on our retired veterens.
The retired Vets should get everything that they ask for. Take away the money
that goes to illegal aliens to pay for everything.
@T. Party – “There are 17 trillion reasons why I think he is too
easily satisfied.”You’re right… and don’t
you wish we had a party that actually cared about those reasons?Instead we’re stuck with the “preserve our entitlements”
party trying to govern alongside the “drown government in the
bathtub” party, both of which pay little more than lip service to actually
balancing the budget. And so you get what we have here today…
and this was the reason Bob Bennett is sitting at home instead of Washington DC.
"Getting along" and "compromise" are the sort of fluffy good
feeling talk that happens when one side is bent on not giving anything and the
other is only too willing to compromise their core principles to be seen as
cooperative.When you have good versus evil, compromise should never
be a goal, only defeating evil. In my opinion, the goals of Barack Obama, Harry
Reid and Nancy Pelosi and their evil.
Until the federal congress treats the people's money as sacred it will not
matter what deal is made.
Thanks for the big fail Senator Lee, you illustrated the absurdity of government
400 filibusters in the Senate by the GOP. More than triple under any other
President. More than double from under George W. Bush. 86 judicial
blocks from the Republican party. Almost as much as all other previous
President's, combined. 47 failed attempts to repeal the
Affordable Care Act. Costing America $50 million dollars. Government
shutdown. Costing America $24 billion dollars. 113th congress. After
Republicans 'take America back' in 2010, fast forward to 2013 and they
are factually the least productive congress in 60 years. Congress
has an approval rate of just 9%. There is a simple way to fix a
broken congress. Vote Democrat.
That Bennett thinks the "Plan" is a good thing is of course not
surprising. He has his own part in the bloated, broke and irresponsible federal
government we now enjoy. Hatch and Utah's Reps in the House are all
complicit in the insanity, and the day will come when it all comes undone. The
backlash will be ugly, but unavoidable if we don't stop the moral decay.
