Maybe you should run for an office or President! Give it some thot'! We need to get rid of the people making these terrible decision in D. C. before they ruin our country.Let's see and what have the Dems. done for our country lately. We have Obama Care that imposes hidden taxes on the American people which was rammed down our throats. They spent tax dollars on Solendra and other alternative energy companies that have all went bankrupt. They are now trying to take away our 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. They are trying to regulate what kind of foods we can eat. They want to raise taxes. They gave themselves raises and then turned around and distributed out free phones to those on gov. assistance all from taxpayer money. This country has over 49 million people on some form of gov. assistance and it is rising everyday. There is less than that paying in taxes. How long do you think it is going to take before America goes bankrupt and nobody will get any assistance even those that have earn the right to recieve it. Then what state will this country be in. How are the people that have been recieving assistance going to react. I'll tell you. They will be the first to attack the gov. and dems. for making them dependent in the first place. At which time the dems. are going to want to have their second amendment right to protect themselves from the mass ugliness and choas they themselves created. Now if we do not raise the debt ceiling. Increase taxes across the board minamally. Close all tax loopholes within the system. Stop the free give aways. Such as phones. Get rid of Obama Care. Put restrictions on who can recieve welfare put them on a time limit in which they will not recieve assistance. Only give entitlements to those that have worked and paid into them. Cut gov. wages and benefits down to what the average taxpayer recieves. Quit stimulating the economy by printing more money and flooding the market with it. Raise intrest rates so the dollar grows in value. Then and only then will we have a chance of not going bankrupt. I hope the repulicans stick to what they've promised. Otherwise we will not succeed in a balanced budget.
