If you believe that John Boehner really had the best interest of the country at heart when he struck he deal with Bobo Obama, you probably are happy this morning. If you are like a lot of people and thought he was shoveling the shit out of the barn, just to get the barn cleaned so he could pack up his bag and head back to Cincinnati, then you probably wish you were still in bed.
As you slept last night, Mitch McConnell and the leadership in the Senate got everybody back together in the dead of night to pass the “deal” that Boehner, McConnell, Reid and Pelosi all hammered out with Bobo. The vote was 64-35. Oh, and Rand Paul and Ted Cruz’ filibuster? Yeah…they did it. It lasted all of 20 minutes. I guess they really wanted to go to bed after that debate and a red eye back to DC.
The good news is, you’re not going to have to deal with a government shutdown in the next 17 months. You’re not going to have to worry about the United States defaulting on its debt. Of course, your grandchildren may have to worry about their economy, as the liberals out there do what they do best…spend money. As the Washington Times reported, the 144 page bill spends about $558 million per page. Yeah…that’s a lot of dough.
Here’s my take on this: IF you’re going to tell me that the GOP is going to be able to hold the line on spending after the next 17 months, and IF they are going to finally get serious about the issues that effect Americans…about debt, about a runaway government, about immigration that is broken, about corruption in politics, about an economy that’s slower than an 80 year old running a marathon, about jobs and getting people back to work by giving the private sector the tools it needs without buying your way to a decent economy, about re-writing the tax code to something that doesn’t involve the IRS, about holding those responsible that have been involved in the myriad of scandals in DC…IF you are going to tell me that beginning in March, 2017, all of that is going to take place, and we just have to get from here to there…IF that’s what you’re telling me…OK. I’m on board.
IF you’re going to tell me that you just kicked the can down the road 17 months so you didn’t have to deal with those problems, and that someone else is going to have to worry about all of the domestic issues I just mentioned as well as fighting al Qaeda and ISIS and actually doing something to defeat them, rather than keep the military busy, get the hell out, because there is a bulldozer that’s on its way to DC to clean up the stench, and you’re part of it.
We don’t need middle-of-the-night deals. We had enough of that with Obamacare. How’d that work out? We don’t need crap. We need leaders and we need solutions. And if the politicians in Washington aren’t leaders, but just people looking to suck the teat of the American public, they need to realize we don’t need them, and we’re going to bulldoze them.
I think my blood pressure is nearing 200/100 and I need to call 911. In the meantime…
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
