Honest RINOs & Spending

At least Senator Brown (RINO-MA) is being honest. He, and a few other people, want to symbolically “sit together” for the State of the Union address. I predict it will turn into total silliness, with everyone sitting with everyone else in a love fest. But anyway, my point is, there are a number of others who, the article claims, want to sit together in the spirit of hippies worldwide: Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Sen. John McCain, Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe, Maine Sen. Susan Collins and New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte. Anyone notice the common thread? They’re all Democrats! That group all LOVES massive spending! Of COURSE they want to sit with Democrats — those are their allies! Sheesh.

On spending, this is just classic:

Coburn said he thought he would vote in favor of raising the debt ceiling only if there was a specific amount of spending cuts on the table.

Just think about that one for a moment… “Sure, I’ll vote to raise your spending limit, but only if you spend less.” Uh, why, then, would you need to raise the limit? Oh, right, I see — because YOU, Mr. Coburn, want to SPEND MORE, you just want to spend it where YOU want to spend it, and not where that other guy wants to spend it. Go sit with Brown and his pals.

What a damn load of crap. Here’s a line I would absolutely LOVE to see come out of any Congressman: “WE DON’T HAVE ANY MONEY!” I’d do it. Any time I was asked any question about the budget or a vote, that would be my answer. And when I was asked, “Gee, what programs will you cut?” My answer will be, “WE DON’T HAVE ANY MONEY, YOU FOOL!”

It doesn’t matter what gets cut. Sure, I could list all the things I think should be cut, but that will take awhile. How about keeping it simple: cut everything! And I don’t mean playing the political fear game, cutting public schools and firemen. Those cuts are 100% political crap to scare people. How about cutting the thousands of bureaucrats that do nothing but breathe and take my tax money? Ah, but never mind, as I said: cut everything.

WE DON’T HAVE ANY MONEY!


But we can’t say that. It might scare people.

    I am sure glad you posted this because I did not feel like writing tonight!!

    You are right about Brown and the others. I had high hopes for Brown when he was running and elected. He talked a good game but has failed to follow through. He seems more interested in appeasing the liberals in MA than doing what what he told voters he would do.

    As for the seating arrangement. This has absolutely NOTHING to do with bipartisanship. This has nothing to do with feel good get along mush.

    This is designed to mix the two sides together so that when Obama says something to which only Democrats rise it will not be so readily apparent as to how many more Republicans there are.

    This is designed to keep the public from seeing a much larger contingent of Republicans. When Democrats had overwhelming numbers they had no problems being separated so that their superiority was on display.

    Mixing them up will save Obama the embarrassment of a public display of just how much he lost. It is one thing to talk numbers but quite another when the public can actually see the difference…

      You know, I hadn’t thought about the PR aspect of this in that way. Good point, and one that I’m sure the Democrats are actually working.

    See the Difference? We need to FEEL the difference! If these people cannot see that we are flat out of money, they need to be recalled to their districts and forcibly sat down and TOLD in no uncertain terms that they need to cut everything to the bone, or WE WON’T SURVIVE AS A NATION.
    It really is that clear- we are being gutted as a Nation by China, Russia, and Japan, who guts us politely- but guts us nevertheless.
    Quit consuming anything you do not need- just buy what is needed for survival, nothing more.
    Grow as much of your food as you can- every little bit helps.
    And as for the Govt.- cut to the bone, yea- it WILL hurt but sometimes you have to amputate an arm to save the body.
    It is common sense.
