Paul Ryan has been "hands off" and silent on this process. Boehner wants to keep his replacement "clean" in the eyes of the public as this fast track deal is done with Obama, a deal which includes busting the sequester, equalizing budget increases between domestic and military spending while also cutting social security and medicare, yet leaving the welfare type programs in the increase category. He and Obama also don't want you to know about this so mum is the word, just like the phony deficit figure they cite of $18.1 trillion. Unbeknownst to most, the debt clock has been stopped for nearly six months without any explanation. I guess they don't think we are smart enough to figure it out.
But here's the thing, folks. More and more polling data shows that Americans by a wide margin want spending to decrease, not increase, and the percentages even include a significant number of Democrats as all Americans are finally waking up to the truth. Americans are now even coming to the conclusion that a closed government for a short period might be a good thing, but they also know that our elected officials lack the fortitude to do so. Sadly, that means that you can't trust just about any data that comes out of the Administration as the situation spirals downward.
It looks like Boehner and Senate Majority Leader McConnell will get this through and then Ryan can say he had nothing to do with it. This phony conservative who has lately been scheming with the infamous Chicago Congressman, Luis Gutierrez echoes Boehner's sentiment in thinking we are stupid. Frankly, I don't think so and I fear that this truly foolish action, following a longstanding chain of such actions, will only speed the demise of our economic system which continues to unravel. And it clearly shows just how important it is for America to vote out the Establishment and vote in true conservative thinkers who will use common sense and sound values to return what's left of the country we love to the people. It's time to clean the swamp and return government to a legislature which works for the people, not against them.
We'll likely see in a few days just what all the details are and the numbers that are attached thereto but remember, you'll have to dig deep to get to the truth. You can bet that the bureaucrats will complicate it as much as they can to avoid us finding the truth if they can. God help America.
