Washington Is Broken and They Turned Off The Alarm Clock

In 2009 the Obama administration's statement about signing the omnibus fiscal year 2010 appropriations bill (HR 3288) was that the bill is not "perfect" because it increases spending and continues earmarking but added that Obama signed the measure to keep government operations moving. Officials also said that Obama's next budget will aim to make more progress toward reducing the deficit (Koffler, Roll Call, 12/16).

When you roll the calendar forward one year you find yet another bloated budget with increased spending and billions in earmarks proposed by the Democrats.  The words from the White House last year ring hollow.  Voters sent a clear message that has been delivered to a liberal/progressive majority that they refuse to hear.

Spending money that we don't have is has proven to fail in the past and will continue to fail in the future.   An intelligent citizen should question what the real agenda of the Democrats is.  The reality seems to be that the current majority in congress only cares about rewarding their cronies and not doing what is best for you and I.  Clearly we don't have a tax rate problem rather we are confronted with a spending problem.

At this moment the best solution would be a continuing resolution taking us into mid February at our current spending levels.  This way on January 5th, the new congressional majority can get to work correcting the blunders of our past administrations.
