Thanks to the GOP in the House & Senate we now have a federal government with 18 months of unlimited spending. Funny that word “budget” they keep using, I don’t think it means what they think it means.
According to Cato, this “budget” doesn’t raise the debt ceiling, it eliminates it for 18 months. This is exactly what Obama has been demanding for the last 8 years. Nice going away present from the Republicans, don’t you think? Please, now, explain to me WHY we elected a GOP majority in Congress? I thought they were going to stop this “reckless spending?”
Look at the diagram I have posted.
It outlines how our money is actually being spent. Over $3 Trillion of our spending is completely unconstitutional.
Watch this 3 min video where James Madison explains EXACTLY what spending our federal government is allowed to do:
Now look at this:
“This platform affirms that America has always been a place of grand dreams and even grander realities; and so it will be again, if we return government to its proper role, making it smaller and smarter.
As we embark upon this critical mission, we are not without guidance. We possess an owner’s manual: the Constitution of the United States, the greatest political document ever written. That sacred document shows us the path forward. Trust the people. Limit government. Respect federalism. Guarantee opportunity, not outcomes. Adhere to the rule of law. Reaffirm that our rights come from God, are protected by government, and that the only just government is one that truly governs with the consent of the governed.”
THIS is the Republican Party Platform. IF they really believe this to be so. IF these are the guiding principles of WHO the Republican Party is, then HOW do we even have this budget by their consent? Don’t tell me it was just “a few” rogues in the Party. The NEW and OLD Speaker of the House, the “leaders of the Republican Party” both voted FOR this budget…against their party principles.
I am not picking on the party, I am demanding Constitutionally limited government! Who else would I demand that from, but the majority vote in Congress?
How about it America? Can we please just follow the Supreme Law of the Land? Can we PLEASE stop spending our children into slavery? Can we please stop the insanity?
KrisAnne Hall is an attorney and former prosecutor, fired after teaching the Constitution to TEA Party groups – she would not sacrifice liberty for a paycheck. She is a disabled veteran of the US Army, a Russian linguist, a mother, a pastor’s wife and a patriot. She now travels the country and teaches the Constitution and the history that gave us our founding documents. KrisAnne Hall does not just teach the Constitution, she lays the foundations that show how reliable and relevant our founding documents are today. She presents the “genealogy” of the Constitution– the 700 year history and five foundational documents that are the very Roots of American Liberty.
