To Be Finished or Not To Be Finished? That is The Question!
We have a finished 2011 Budget. A supposedly Deal has been reached but you America, are you finished or waiting to be finished? What is the question!
All sides have reportedly claimed victory, but what victory are they claiming? Here is what appeared on Yahoo AP News today. Federal Shutdown avoided, 2012 budget fight looms (AP)
AP – A last-minute budget deal forged amid bluster and tough bargaining averted an embarrassing federal shutdown, cut billions in spending and provided the first major test of the divided government that voters ushered in five months ago.
I think that the American Public has been had. The Budget for 2011 has been cut some 78.5 billion dollars and we are still indebted to the tune of trillions of dollars that our children will inherit as their legacy. I don’t believe that our politicians care what our children will really face in the future. The President’s “Win the future” theme has little, it seems, support from all of Congress, especially from those who are sympathetic to the Tea-party and the majority of Republicans, plus a few of the Democrats. We hear this phrase all of the time,”For the American people.” Bottom line, the question remains, when will Victory be achieved for the American people and when will the American be allowed to speak on issues such as what is before us now?
Can our Country endure such indebtedness and pettiness and secure our Country’s future? Take a look at the figures below that represents the American registered voters. It certainly look as though we are doing something that is not right for the future of this Country.
Boehner said the deal came after “a lot of discussion and a long fight.” He won an ovation from his rank and file, including the new tea party adherents whose victories last November shifted control of the House to the GOP. To finish or not to be finished, that is the question!
I think that our Budget System is out dated and need fixing. Our hearts are not strong enough for the kind of rhetoric we hear on a daily basis.
