President Barack Obama challenged Congress to put the good of the nation over political benefit and pass a huge jobs plan he proposed tonight.
Though I doubt his staff will ever glance at what I had to say; rest assured. My comments to the speaker were greatly concerned with the level of selfishness at the expense of our nation.
True patriots and public servants carry out their duties faithfully, whole heartedly, and without bias. This is blatantly a desperate ploy for power. Under no circumstance, preventing the U.S. from meeting its financial obligation can be a reasonable ultimatum. If you believe the national debt is an issue - develop a sensible budget and not a hostage situation.
Boehner needs to grow a pair of balls and accept his party does not have political dominance for a reason; that reason being, their continual disservice to our nation in the last decade. You break it, you bought it … now pay up. Grow a pair of balls Mr. Speaker and man up, you have a job to do.
Joking aside let the head of Congress know, that under no condition, is a scheme the way to conduct policy.
Republicans today deliver a no to Obama’s grand bargain. As Warren Buffet has said, “[they] are willing to blow american’s brains out over the debt limit”. Beyond a doubt their sole purpose is to damn America in hopes of whatever ambition they have to regain the dominance they once held.
The House’s number 2 republican, a key player in the current economic “negotiations”, is betting against the U.S. economy. Sacrificing economic stability for self-interest.
Why is Congress still holding out on raising the debt limit when it is something as standard as passing a budget?
"Holding out on raising the debt ceiling and saying tax increases are off the table is like Meatloaf saying, ‘I will do anything for love but I wont do that’… I’m just saying his logic is faulty." -Jon Stewart
Now lets see these “state’s rights” Republicans make the case for an amendment to the Constitution that abrogates these states’ right.
As a favor to me, Dear Followers:
My letters to my (tea party) congressman, Mr. Justin Amash seem to fall on deaf ears.
If you would be so kind: Please visit his facebook fan page, fan him, and ask him why he has consistently not supported raising the debt ceiling and if he has accepted the fate of the US defaulting on its credit.

Notably, Ron Paul’s motivation in doing this is the critique of most voters that they’d have to be high to vote for him.
A group of House members led by Reps. Ron Paul (R-Texas) and Barney Frank (D-Mass.) plan to introduce legislation Thursday that would legalize the use of marijuana and allow states to develop their own rules on the drug’s use within their borders.
P.S. And John Conyers. Woohoo Michigan!
EXACTLY! The Republican Party, Creating potholes to solve our nation’s problems.
Income disparity shows that evolution stands still for the pay of wage earners while the top income earners make progressively more.
"we cannot tax the class we expect to create jobs"
-Boehner and Cantor (House Republicans)
The reality is we cannot afford to not tax this class. When the distribution of wealth is this bad there should be revolution. Cheers to 2012.
