"I Vote Yes On A Government Shutdown!"
Okay, this is an old joke: Wife tells hubby her credit card was stolen. Three months later he has still not reported the credit card theft. Ask why, the man replies "because the guy who stole it is charging less than my wife was".
Let's face it; the most severe cuts proposed are the Tea Party legislators who are proposing $61 billion in cuts from a $3.75 Trillion dollar budget! Read that again!: $3.75 trillion! And these yahoos can't figure out how to cut 1 percent of the budget? Ask the average housewife how she cut 20% from her budget when one of the family members lost their job! Ask seniors who've had no cost of living increase on their social security in two years how they are doing with 20 percent increase in their electric bill and a 15% increase in their meager food bill! Ask the family who is living in a homeless shelter how to cut 100% of their budget since they have none! Ask the guy at the gas pump how he's coping with $4 dollar gas!
The Dems have never met a social program they didn't love and they've been on a spending orgy for over two years! Now the bill is coming due and the government is trying to print money and borrow from China to pay for all the goodies the Dems bought over the last couple of years.
Let's help the Dems out: Because we are in a recession we have tens of millions of people unemployed. (Remember that $870 billion dollar stimulus program? It didnt' work! You were told it wouldn't work and you rammed it down our throats!) Dems: Those who don't have jobs can't pay income taxes! They don't have income! So, Dems, you have $2 Trillion in revenue and you have a $3.75 Trillion dollar budget! That's $1.75 trillion over what you're taking in! Dems, you're short a couple of trillion! Cut back on your spending! If you don't know how, recruit a few housewives who have had to do it and know how! By the way, you might cut $1.8 billion right off the top by stop giving illegal families free money through the W7 INIT Child Tax Credit program. (http://www.cis.org/child-tax-credits)
And folks, if you don't believe how dire our budget situation is, read this, it'll scare the p*** out of you:
So, if you can't grasp that concept...shut her down!
