The inept Senate voted to extend Bernanke’s fiscal policies for another 4 years. 30 senators actually had the courage and foresight to vote no however the “no change we can believe in” crowd cast 70 votes.
Clearly, the 80/20 rule is applicable to the Senate. 80% of the 100 senators are fundamentally inadequate, self serving, ill-informed and are utterly negligent regarding our next generation. This is classic “its all about me”. 20% of our representatives possess a vision of the future and their respective role in assuring our grandchildren of a fair opportunity. Unfortunately, 80% vote along party lines (due to the fact that they are not able to conjure up their own thought) and what is least likely to “rock the boat”.
We are “represented” by a lemming crowd of career politicians belonging to an exclusive club serving lobbyists and other special interest groups (need those campaign dollars) and who are absolutely removed from those they took an oath to represent. You are nothing more than a group of carnies hawking your wares at the fair. The midway is rigged and so is fair-minded representation.
These pampered and spoiled “representatives” are a disgrace to those in history that actually had gumption to do what was right for the country and make necessary sacrifices to ensure that the next generation had a favorable opportunity to succeed.
Take a look in the eyes of the next generation and tell this grandpa how you could possibly add another $1.9 trillion to an already bloated debt ceiling and give Bernanke another 4 years all in the same day!
