AMAC: Senate Dems Stall Budget; Put Nation at Risk

 ‘It creates uncertainty and threatens further economic chaos, heaping more hurt on all of us.’ 


ATLANTA, June 8 – The Association of Mature American Citizens has accused President Obama and “his Senate Democrats of putting the country in a perilous position by continuing to stall the Federal Budget process.”

“The House has passed a budget, but the Senate’s Democratic majority has, for more than three years, unlawfully failed to do its duty and pass a budget.  Majority Leader Reid has not even allowed a Federal Budget to be proposed,” according to Dan Weber, president of the association.  “They’d rather run the country from behind closed doors.”

The budget is not an option.  Federal Law requires that the Senate must move a budget out of its Budget Committee by April 1 each and every year and that the Senate must adopt a budget resolution within 15 days.

“Perhaps a budget vote in the Senate would be a major embarrassment for President Obama and his party during a crucial election year?  In fact, the president was embarrassed enough after proposing a budget last year.  It was voted down 97 to 0.  Not a single member on either side of the aisle wanted any part of it,” said Weber.

The lack of a budget makes it harder for an economic recovery to take hold, he explained.  “It creates uncertainty and threatens further economic chaos, heaping more hurt on all of us.”

Weber said that the American people are tired of Washington’s lack of accountability, of its inability to put constraints on spending and of its “flagrant disregard” for the notion of living within our means.

And, just which party held up the budget and wrecked the heck out of the entire wold economy last yeat? It seems clear to me that it takes two to tango. Last year the dems offered something like $10 in cuts for every $1 in tax increases for the wealthy and the offer was still rejected to the dire ruin of the world economy. I know because MY entire stock market portfolio took the hit for it. There could be TWO to blame for this. It takes TWO to tango!

The Senate is corrupt to the core.
For 3 years they have broken the law and accepted a paycheck for taking up space.
How many have neglected to pay their “fair share” of personal income taxes? Even though they are found out they are never sent to jail like Wesley Snipes or you and I.
They make themselves exempt from laws (like Obamacare) because they would never allow themselves to have inferior care.

I strongly believe that we need term limits.
If they are not contributing to a solution THEY ARE THE PROBLEM1

We need Representatives and Senators who care more about the health of their country than about being re-elected. That takes integrity and courage to stand aagainst the majority and it seems few men and women in Washington have it.

When you are broke and hopelessly in debt, what is the sense of making up a budget? The members of congress have not a clue as to how to fix this nation’s financial problems. Collectively, they are like the accountant who has stolen from his company for years and is finally caught. There is nothing left but to face the consequences. The only trouble is that we have a congress that refuses to face reality. If they disregard the problem long enough, it may just go away-budget or no budget. The congress has become redundant to our needs. We need well paid,people with common sense and a good knowledge of finance to pull us out of this hole.

Couldn’t have said it better. When voting “We the People” must find a true conservative for office. One that won’t buckle under the establishments thumb and won’t compromise with the Progressive Liberals. That might be a hard find but they are out there.

So do your homework and find the right true conservative.

We have that person in Ron Paul but the media ignores him. He is the only honest candidate running. You can still write him in. If you haven’t had your primary yet, vote for him. If you have, go to your state conventions and become a delegate and vote for him in Tampa. Ron Paul doesn’t take bribes, he won’t deal with special interest groups. He’s never voted to increase our taxes. Romney, the sweetheart of the RNC, is a Mormon. There is nothing wrong with being a Mormon except that Mormons believe that if they are good Mormons that God will give them their own universe to rule over. Romney has no incentive to do what is right for the American people. He will still be a wealthy man plus if elected, he’ll also collect a President’s pension. A President doesn’t need a salary. All their needs are taken care of and then some. Presidents should not get a paid retirement. They don’t need it but the American people do. Bill Clinton has said many times that he has more money now than he ever had as President. And yet we still pay him a lifetime pension. If Hillary had been elected, we’d be paying for two pensions. President Obama has a man advising him on the economy who cheats on his taxes. President Obama doesn’t have very good judgment when it comes to choosing his advisors. Vote for Ron Paul. If you research him on the internet you will see plenty about him. Our rights are being taken away from us and most Americans don’t even know it. It’s going to continue no matter if Obama is re-elected or if Romney is elected. They agree on everything except on who is the best man for the job.
