No Change In DC
It Continuously baffles me how Americans constantly give the Democrats (more to the point, Obama) another chance. It is also mind-boggling how we repeatedly believe that the elected officials from either House have learned their lesson, or better yet, seen the light, and will almost over night change their tune.
I remember when Obama ran for office and how the media and all those elitist Democrats raved about what a fabulous speaker Obama was. The fact that he was reading someone else’s words, from a teleprompter, never became part of the discussion.
My point: Obama just spoke words. Words that meant the world to those who listened and eventually voted for Obama, but meant nothing to him. As for Congress, it never mattered what Obama said he would do or not do; Congress always exempts itself from the bills they pass into law.
So, when you hear that Nancy Pelosi is for some bill because it is good for the people; she is not including herself as one of the people; she is exempt.
I guess I’m going off course here a little. You see, I don’t think anyone who is voted out of office like 60+ Democrats were, should be allowed to vote on the passage of any law, during the lame-duck session of Congress. None of the bills passed this week should have been voted on. Basically, Congress should have gone home for Christmas and waited until they came back to discuss the bills up for a vote and then read them out-loud on the floor, before voting on them.
Has anything changed in DC; I think not. Are the Republicans so much better than the Democrats; I think not. There is no logic to the fact that the Republicans claim that they need the Bush tax cuts extended for everyone, especially the rich, because it is the rich who create the jobs, do the hiring. Well, the rich have had the Bush tax cuts for 7 years, and I haven’t seen any jobs being created nor have I seen any hiring, at least, not in America, (A bunch of CEO’s did go with Obama to Indonesia (remember the 13 day trip? It certainly wasn’t to create American jobs.
If you need verification of this fact then tell me, why did we need to extend unemployment for 13 months if the rich were doing all this job creating? The Democrats and the Republicans talk out of both sides of their mouths. The American people are still not connecting the dots. When will they learn?
The Republicans could have held off until after Christmas to vote on all the bills, including the one that would shut down the Federal Government. They could have taken a stand; but hey, the won their seats this time around, because the people believed their promise to cut spending and then they did what they always do, a complete180° turn around, and went back to their old tricks.
When will they ever learn? ss
