The Fiscal Cliff

Republican Congressional Representatives keep jabbing at the White House for not coming up with a solution to this problem.  Isn’t this what Congress is for?  Didn’t we vote for them so they could fix these types of problems?  Don’t they have the capability to take on these types of problems?

It is not up to the White House to come up with a solution to this problem.  It is up to Congress.  I mean they have a few hundred members and could easily put together a “think tank” to come up with answers to the Fiscal Cliff.  They want to chop areas where they have already allocated monies for this year.  They should be concentrating on the 2014 budget.  They haven’t spent the money already and the way to pay off a debt is to come up with a rational plan to do so.  All they have to do is identify areas to cut back and do it in the next fiscal year not in the year they have already allocated monies for.

We have waited this long for a solution to this problem then we can wait a couple more months.  Congress has failed us once again.  They continue to fail us.  And we need to have long memories so we can get rid of these people.  The Republicans in Congress should have, could have, but didn’t find an answer to this Fiscal Cliff.  The Democrats have put ideas before Congress just to have them shot down because the Republicans are busy playing politics.

Enough with the politics!  It is time to pay our bills and fix the deficit starting in our 2014 budget.  They have already spent the money from the 2013 budget but don’t want to pay the bill.  Another case of Republican “Dine and Dash”.  Don’t be a fool, see this for what it is.  Political posturing.  We cannot fix this problem in a couple of months, we have to have sound thinking and a fiscally sound answer to fixing the National Debt.  Take the time and do it right the first time.  Don’t just pull the plug on social programs that are actually working.  Pull the plug on programs that are not working.  Like giving big oil companies millions of dollars.  That is one area that can go. It would be shameful for Congress not to act responsibly and pay our debts now then cut our debts starting in the 2014 budget.  Sure we can cut money now but where would it get us?  It would be hasty and they probably wouldn’t cut the money from the areas that it really should be cut.
