Skip to comments.D.C.: Cut the Drama. Do Your Job.

Americans are sick and tired of yet another ginned-up crisis. D.C. needs to grow up, get to work, and live within its means. The real economic Armageddon looming before us is our runaway debt, not the sequester, which the President advocated for and signed into law and is now running around denouncing because he never had any genuine intention of reining in his reckless spending.
Remember that this sequestration deal came about because of the long debt ceiling standoff in the summer of 2011. It wasnt the ideal outcome for anyone, but it did at least include real deficit reduction of about $110 billion per year for 10 years, which is still nowhere near enough to close our massive deficit. Keep in mind that since the sequester passed, the President has already hit American families and small business owners with his tax increases, or more revenue as he likes to call it. The American public doesnt want tax increases; we want government to rein in its overspending.
If we cant stomach modest cuts that would lower federal spending by a mere 0.3% per year out of a current federal budget of $3.6 trillion, then we might as well signal to the whole world that we have no serious intention of dealing with our debt problem.
If we are going to wet our proverbial pants over 0.3% in annual spending cuts when were running up trillion dollar annual deficits, then were done. Put a fork in us. Were finished. Were going to default eventually and thats why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest.
If we ARE serious about putting our fiscal house in order, then lets stop the hysterics, tighten our belts, and take our medicine.

Calvin Coolidge wanted to fix this problem and guess what!?
HE FREAKING FIXED IT!!!!
He didn't play with the idea of Grandma not having an Ambulance when he knew that he could cut the Redundant Department of Redundancy without any negative consequences what so ever.
I don't know what it will take to get through to these people.
Here in Kansas we just had a Major snow storm and we handled it fine.
But maybe when Walmart is bare and their iPhone's don't work anymore they will fricking understand!!
It’s easy enough to see why the Left is so hysterical about portraying this woman as a fool or an imbecile. This is brilliant, direct, and powerful. What a shame she has been the object of such abuse.
My only concern is that we be the Eastern Empire and not the Western....
Coolidge is probably my second-favorite president, for precisely that reason; my favorite would be John Adams (not saying he was perfect, his acquiescence to political expediency via the Alien and Sedition Acts are proof of that; but reading a lot of what he said & did is... inspiring).
This is typical of what Obama does..he creates drama, then goes out and blames the Republicans for it and he has the lapdogs in the media in his back pocket so they say whatever he wants them to say..Obama does this ALL THE TIME..Sequestration was HIS idea..but will his kiss asses in the media report that..OF COURSE NOT..this is what Obama does to create drama and to try to create a rift in the Republican party, which he wants to destroy
I could not said it better myself S.B.
You have the brevity of your name sake.
Do you mind if I use it in the future when we talk about this damned topic?
Absolutely I would be honored thanks!!
That was an excellent miniseries.
Pray to God that He guards the Palin family.
I LOVE SARAH PALIN!
G-d Bless You Bicyclerepair!
Yep, ...or as Governor William J. Le Petomane said: “We’ve gotta protect our phoney baloney jobs, gentlemen! “
BALANCED BUDGET NOW BALANCED BUDGET NOW BALANCED BUDGET NOW..........
That the solution that insider politicians, big business and big labor refuse to face.
Its much easier to keep the drama going to pump up markets and pretend prosperity is coming in the future.
