The Senate today passed a $1.1 trillion spending bill, sending it on to the White House for what will surely result in President Obama’s signature, all but securing for us, our children and grandchildren a lifetime of increasingly higher taxes to pay down Washington’s excesses. This latest spending bill out of the way, our elected officials–those who are supposed to serve us, not rule over us–are set to start debate afresh on several other hot-button issues. Most notable among those are health care and, in light of Obama’s planned visit to the global warming summit, “cap ‘n tax.”
As the debate intensifies, the only constant is how little respect our employees actually show us. Despite significant, and growing, opposition to ObamaCare (even more than HillaryCare, by some estimates), to listen to the Washington political elite is to listen to those who have no connection to regular, work-a-day Americans. Our Congress today pays virtually no heed to our wishes, as they enact legislation, willy-nilly, that will do nothing to improve the quality of our lives, but will almost certainly result in a much heavier tax burden on all of us, all while vastly expanded regulatory authority will extend the federal government’s reach into virtually every aspect of our lives. This will necessarily result in the further reduction of states’ powers, along with the curtailment of our individual liberties, all addressed in the Declaration of Independence and protected by the Constitution of the United States of America.
Are you mad as hell? If you’re not, you should be. If you are, let’s hear why, along with your ideas on how to combat–and reverse–the accelerating federal “creep”.
