RED OR BLUE: WHOEVER’S DRIVING, A CRASH IS INEVITABLE
By FITSNEWS || There’s been a lot of talk about how the first thing “Republicans” did following their big election win was sell taxpayers down the river via the passage of a pork-laden “bipartisan” spending bill (a.k.a. the “Cromnibus”).
Which is true … that’s exactly what they did.
And yes, a trillion here … a trillion there … sooner or later we’re talking about real money.
“This year’s omnibus resembles omnibuses of Christmas past in that it was drafted in secret, was full of special interest deals and disguised spending increases, and was voted on before most members could read it,” former U.S. Rep. Ron Paul wrote of the boondoggle.
Absolutely. In other words it’s more of the same “bipartisanshit” that has American taxpayers (and the economy they are attempting to support) drowning in red ink.
Beyond the budget deal, there’s also a growing awareness that Washington’s deficit spending addiction has now reached a “point of no return.”
Which also happens to be true …
Putting all of this in context? A brilliant political cartoon by A.F. Blanco, whose “Cromnibus” depiction – published by Americans for Limited Government – hits the nail on the head.
Bottom line? Red or blue (Democrat or “Republican”), we’re screwed …
