immigration bill taking on water…

Well we now have the age old protracted battle of will here and we also have an election coming up very soon…

The commercials are already in play for 2014, so what to do about the immigration battle that looms in the house.

Well we know that anything that comes out of the stinking senate, lead by Harrie, Reid, who appears to be more and more like an old man being led around on a chain and reading from a scrap of paper because he cannot remember his own name…

So, what exactly is going to happen with this immigration reform bill, probably nothing, some are predicting that the house will cave in and do it anyway, but really I don’t think anyone cares, this bill will not do anything to fix the problem.

Cut Cap Ballance…

Can it be done, or is it just a dream that politicians might one day stand

up like men instead of weeping and crying like children.

Cut, Cap, and Balance

103 House Republicans sent a letter to House Republican leadership calling for a solution that could resolve the current debt limit impasse and prevent the bigger, Greece-like debt crisis just over the horizon: Cut, Cap, and Balance.  

1.  Cut – We must make discretionary and mandatory spending reductions that would cut the deficit in half next year.

2.  Cap – We need statutory, enforceable caps to align federal spending with average revenues at 18% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), with automatic spending reductions if the caps are breached.

3.  Balance – We must send to the states a Balanced Budget Amendment (BBA) with strong protections against federal tax increases and a Spending Limitation Amendment (SLA) that aligns spending with average revenues as described above.

With each passing day our nation’s fiscal health gets worse, leaving our children and grandchildren falling further into debt. Democrats seem to have given up, proposing even more borrowing in response to our massive debt addiction. With the problem growing larger every day, we must move quickly and unite behind a plan to cut spending and get our budget into balance.
