Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) doesn’t want to play the debit limit game with Rep. Eric Cantor anymore. Reid got miffed because Cantor and President Barack Obama don’t see eye to eye.
There’s a solution to this conflict.
Have all parties sit down together and broadcast the proceedings live on the Web.
Democrats don’t have a history of credibility on this matter. Let’s recap (I keep repeating this information because media has given progressive socialists a complete pass):
*For more than 800 days, with Democrats in full control of two branches of our government, a budget was not passed.
*Obama did present a budget--$3.7 trillion to be exact. The US Senate voted down Obama’s proposed budget—the Obama money plan did not get a single vote from either party.
*Despite spending or committing nearly a trillion dollars to so-called Stimulus spending, the country is still in a bind largely because of socialist-progressive policy on regulations related to carbon emissions, healthcare and labor rights (killing jobs at Boeing comes to mind).
Livestream these proceedings. And then we’ll get to see who the real children are, don’t you think?
After all, these members of Congress and the president are in charge of the people’s money. That would be a good thing to remind Reid and Obama about. Why should this be done in secret?
In a recent report, the GAO said the federal government made more than $125 billion in improper payments on federal grants. Does that sound like somebody who deserves more taxpayer money?
