Mr. Obama was on a tear telling the 60 Minutes interviewer that he did not come to Washington to help a bunch of “fat cats” on Wall Street. Well, that’s just great. I guess he just came to Washington to help the fat cats there!
Since Mr. Obama took office, government employees making over $170,00o per year have literally exploded. Before he took office there was only one employee in the Department of Transportation making that amount. Now there is over a thousand employees just in that one department alone making that princely sum.
Most of the businesses that I am aware of have cut workers, cut salaries or frozen salaries due to the economic times that we find ourselves in. Prudent measures that sometimes have to be taken to save a business from failing all together. Not the government, though, while families and businesses are cutting their budgets, Washington is on a spending spree.
Congress just sent to the President’s desk a spending bill with over 5000 earmarks that when totaled up was over 1.1 TRILLION dollars. Apparently, budgeting, is only for us “little people”. Oh, and while they’re spending like there’s no tomorrow with money that they printed up just for the occasion; they are planning on taking over the health care system. Are you kidding me!
I’m tired of it. Let’s send a message to Washington. Let’s vote out these tax and spenders. Let’s take back our government.
