The House of Representatives will vote today on yet another continuing resolution to fund the never-ending increases for government spending. The media and both parties are keeping this CR as quiet as possible due to the consequences in the November elections as our “elected” officials show their cowardice as described by Sen. Tom Coburn in his book “The Debt Bomb”.
In what is another Tea Party debacle, I have not seen once announcement to call US Representatives to vote against this bill and put the country ahead of politics. So who is really controlling the Tea Party and the Occupy Movement? When will the Tea Party shed its adherence to the Republican party and realize that the fate of the country is at stake?
Any member of Congress who votes for this CR should automatically be targeted in this election. It is disappointing that what should be the major issue in this campaign is relegated to obscurity regardless of the consequences to our children.
What is even more disappointing is that this CR will send more foreign aid to both Egypt and Libya.
From Representative Jeff Landry (R-La.):
“In light of the recent developments, if the president were to come back and demand that the amount of money that’s in that CR [continuing resolution] for Libya and Egypt be stripped out, that would be tremendous leadership because, remember, the regimes that are in place in those two countries came under his policies – he built that, okay,” Landry said at a press conference on Wednesday.
From House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers, (R-Ky) on removing the countries from the continuing resolution (CR):
“The CR is closed for changes.”
As we fund terrorism against ourselves, we will have to ask why we continue to expect a different result from a government which has abandoned the Constitution and their duty. We have met the enemy and they are domestic.
