Congress Showing signs of a *gasp* Compromise?

31 Mar

You jerk my chain and I'll jerk yours... But that chain looks like it has syphilis!

Though I think compromise has it’s time, it is disheartening to hear that the Republicans aren’t taking the stand that they promised to take. It looks like the whusses are scared of a shutdown… click here to read more

Though I appreciate the activism and the rallying cry, I think it would be unwise to focus too much on a balanced budget amendment. The goal is to bring the federal government out of the red… we can only do that with a clear strategy of fiscal responsibility and restraint.

As for the cuts for the current year, we can’t play games. We must cut as much as we can, and if the liberals threaten a shut down, so be it. Politically, these representatives know that the Tea Party Patriots will back them if they make a righteous budgetary stand. The sooner we get the $61 billion off the budget, the faster Washington has to learn to live without $61 billion dollars. Forget all the rhetoric about free loaders and lazy people etc. that kind of talk is unproductive nonsense. The goal is to shrink the size of the federal government so individuals, the private sector, and States can make the best decisions possible.

People think Tea Party Patriots are completely against raising taxes… that is not the case. In the situation we’re in now, taxing a public that is struggling to make ends meet and growing the federal government would be a very short-lived temporary fix that will only dig us deeper. But when we get back to fiscal responsibility, it is the individual and the State that should have more leeway; when we reach the equilibrium again, if States like CA and IL keep playing the same ol’ tax and spend game, the individuals of that state will be able to spend the way they want and raise/decrease the STATE income tax as they please (so long as they know the Federal government wont be there to bail them out every step of the way AND that they’ll have to compete with fiscally responsible States)… Competition is the end game
