When Are These People Going to GROW UP!!

Saturday, March 2, 2013


I am soooo tired of hearing about the sequester and budget cuts and tax increases!! And now when both sides realize that the only ones they are hurting are the American people (and possibly themselves more to the point), suddenly at the 11th hour they say they are going to compromise? Yeah right—I’ll believe THAT when I see it. Another article caught my eye today in the NY Times-you have to read it. In one sentence the parties are compromising—then in the next they are not!!

We, the people are in for some hard times ahead—whether there are massive cuts in spending, tax increases or decreases—and which really upset me-some of them are still thinking of overhauling the way Social Security is handled (payments)—HEY Social Security is definitely not a give away—I have worked for years and paid into that fund every single year—as have most other Americans. I will not be a happy camper until they stop trying to mess with MY forced savings!

I'll be honest when I say I don't understand a lot of this budget business...but what I do know is that as a military family, it definitely makes me wonder what this means for our family's future!! Scary stuff...

Hubby and I think congress needs to do as the Catholic Church does when selecting a pope...lock them in a room until they figure it out...they'll have no choice but to do their jobs and get it done once and for all...

Thanks for sharing your honest opinion. I try not to talk politics because it becomes so heated.I think all Americans, except for the uber rich will lose with this lame duck congress we have.

I live in the DC suburbs, and I couldn't agree more about how frustrating this whole situation is. I blog about career topics, and these budget cuts have got me all in a tizzy :(

I found you through the "Lovin the Weekend" blog hops. Thanks for making me feel like I'm not alone with my frustration!

It's so sad what our world became. we, the small people, are at the mercy of politicians and economists and their interests.

Hopefully yours are a bit wiser than ours.

I'm with Randi unfortunately. I really SHOULD try to learn more about it because I know this is going to affect me and everyone else I know!

I really think the people of the United States should wake up and realize these people don't really have our best interests in mind.

We need to start taking things into our own hands; I'm a firm believer every little bit can make a difference ^.^
