The Republicans have repeatedly been asking Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to bring forward the so-called Democratic plan for a federal budget.  Reid doesn’t have one, obviously,  since he cannot seem to produce it.    Congress is supposed to come up with a budget every year.  But it has been a couple of years since they have managed to do this.  Reid says there is no reason for one.  Seems that if they produce their version of the budget, they will lose votes in the next elections and they can’t take a chance on doing that.  So they drag their feet, hoping the time will quickly pass and they won’t really have to produce a budget.

Also, the Senate Budget Committee that is in charge of all this said they planned to defer work on a 2012 budget indefinitely.  More Democrats.  So far, nothing the Democrats have produced has done anything except add to the deficit.

All the Republicans are asking for is a compromise budget that can actually pass and put a stop to some of this brazen spending of money that we simply do not have any more of.  But they need honesty and and willingness to work on this together.   Instead, the Democrats want to blame the Republicans for taking away all the elder citizens Medicare.  This is simply not true at all.  Just another bizarre story out to scare everyone into thinking the Democrats are saving us all.

The Democrats are at fault.  The  Republicans have done nothing wrong at all and do not intend to.   So guess what, there is no story to put out about the budget, so you are not hearing much at all about that.   Just the same old rhetoric of made up stuff about how bad the Republicans are and how they are going to send us all to the poor house.  If we don’t watch out, those Democrats are going to do just that to all of us.

If you have no money to spend, you don’t go out and recklessly throw it away on some silly trinket that you will never need.  But the Democrats are doing that to us every day.  If your credit cards are maxed out, you don’t go out and charge more to them.  It comes down to the simple fact that if you don’t have the money, you don’t spend it.  Period.  If you do spend more than you have, you will soon be in financial trouble.  That is where we are today in this Country.  And yet the Democrats keep right on spending that money like there is no limit to it.

Make sure you know the real story or stories behind all the workings in Washington before you make up your mind about anything these days.
