The 111th Congress-Arrogant or Just Plain Stupid!

by Richard H. Frank

The Washington, D.C. soap opera continues as members in the House of Representatives and the Senate play chicken with the economic future of this Nation and the American people.  From the perspective of many Americans it would be better if the 111th Congress would just take a recess and go home until January 5th, 2011 when the New 112th Congress takes office.

Apparently, these legislators did not get the message from the electorate in the 2010 mid-term elections.  If they did, then we are witness to pure arrogance and disdain for their constituents on the part of Congress.

The existing debt limit for Government is now $14.1 trillion and has been raised ten times in recent years.  Should the Omnibus Spending Bill now in the Senate be passed to fund our Government, America will incur an additional $1.1 trillion in debt which will exceed the existing limit.  Passing this legislation will add insult to injury and “We the People” should keep a list of each and every member of Congress that votes for the 1924+ page monstrosity and show them the door when they come up for re-election.

Call your Congressmen and Senators and tell them “enough is enough” and that they must vote against out-of- control Government spending or face the consequences for their actions.

Should they not get the message that they work for us, we will give them a chance to work for someone else beginning in 2012.  The world is watching our ability and willingness to tackle our out-of-control spending and Congress is not heeding the warnings of those world economists that have said our economic standing in the world can turn on a dime based upon our actions.  Just say “No.”
