No one was upset about the last shutdown but the Democrats. Now we have the fight to stop the amnesty and I'm not so sure that the Republicans want it stopped either. DO YOU REMEMBER WHO YOU WORK FOR, YOU WORK FOR ME AND ALL OTHER TAX PAYERS, NOT REP. PARTY OR OBAMA
It is time to make the tough decisions to come up with a balanced budget. There are so many foolish expenditures that could be reduced or eliminated. And I don't mean aim immediately for the defense budget. Let's cut Social Security checks going to people who died ten years ago - but the family really appreciates the checks. Let's review who is fraudulently on SSI. Let's limit SSI for addicts to 18 months, and require they go into rehab and get sober. Addiction is cureable so why do we accept their being disabled in perpetuity? Let's cut the budget of non-essential agencies 5% across the board and let them make the cuts. Lots of alternatives to deficit spending year after year.
