“We are being high-jacked by a pack of criminals, thugs and thieves who will make sure that we, the public, take the brunt of any “cuts”.  Those at the top of the income ladder, those who have the word “corporation” attached to their names and those who hold political office will not experience any “cuts”.  In fact, I doubt any of them could even bleed if they did.”

 One of the great political battles composed only of partisan politics is unfolding right before our very eyes.  The battle over ending the massive over spending by both houses of congress and successive presidents has morphed into how badly either side can scare the public into submitting to the threats. And it will be21150explosion the public who will suffer.  Not the corporations.  Not the wealthy.  Not the politicians or the president.  It will be me and you and everyone you know.

Both sides are banking on how badly they can scare the general public into going along with, a) Increasing taxes on the wealthy and ending preferential treatment for corporations and continue spending like there is no tomorrow or, b) No tax increases and approximately 750,000 people losing their jobs and continue spending like there is no tomorrow.

While the average American can observe from the outside the massive expansion and waste in the federal government and can clearly see where cuts to any budget could reasonably be made, apparently those inside the Beltway suffer from severe tunnel vision.  That vision is focused squarely on their bank accounts and campaign war chests.  This is important! It is these funds that allow them to retain these lucrative, albeit criminal, offices they occupy.

There is absolutely no chance that wasteful government spending will end under either option.  The public is being treated like pawns in a grossly politically charged war between two factions of the one party system in the District of Criminals. More
