The Jury Talks Back

Dear Republicans

I swear to God, you people have been given the greatest gift with this budget.

You have been handed a chance to make actual cuts.  Do it.  You have a mandate from the election, so use it.

Don’t apologize. When you have to comment, say “Not only do we have an problem with deficit spending, but we also have a massive debt load. Cuts are required, and they are required everywhere.”

Change Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Freddie and Fannie.  Fix them. Accept no amendments that do not cut spending.

When the Senate attempts a change, every Republican needs to vote against it. Vote only for the budget the House passes. When the Senate manages to pass something different ANYWAYS, ignore it. Re-pass the House version, and send it back.

When Obama vetoes it, attempt to override.  Then when that fails, pass it again.  Keep sending it.  Do not negotiate.

If the Government has to be shut down, flood the media with people reminding everyone that the Democrats caused this, that they are the reason we did not have a budget at the end of the last Congress. Say that because they were unwilling to do their jobs, you have to take drastic steps.

Keep on it. Never let up, do not deviate from that point – Democrats willfully, knowingly opted to abstain from passing a budget.

Hammer them on this.

And with God as my fucking witness, if any of you assholes  propose or vote for a Continuing Resolution, I will personally raise an army to make sure you never make it past another primary again. You won’t even get elected to fucking dog-catcher.

  1. It seems pretty obvious to me that the GOP should give America a choice between the status quo of unserious and insane debt spending, and a balanced budget.

    Let Obama veto a budget that is balanced in 2012 through 2021. Let America decide if they want to steal from their kids and grandkids some more, or get our economy back on track.

    There’s a redemptive, liberating spirit behind the Dave Ramsey concept of common sense budgeting, and I think it’s a winner politically.

    Even if it’s not, Obama has been aggressive in setting his goal far to the left on spending. We should counter to the right, and hope at least we compromise somewhere closer to sanity.

    Obama voted present again, on the most serious task he has, and I hope the GOP is getting ads together to explain that.

  2. Scott,

    That mandate fell short in the Senate..

    Also, some Republicans felt that a moderate tax cut would be harder to contest in the Senate

    Thats why they did that – not to satisfy your blood lust :) but to put the country on notice that many more cuts are coming
