I found it refreshing regardless of political parties, that the freshmen who comprize a large portion of the TeaParty Caucus in the House of Representatives still held to their convictions and message they ran on. So much so the Speaker had to listen to them since they could not be assuaged. So the debt ceiling was challenged for the first time in 40 years.
With regard to Obama, he stated at the beginning of the year that he did not want any conditions to raise the debt limit and did not want to reduce spending (as evidenced by his budget proposal that was handily rejected 97-0).
So I ask when at the voting booth:
Vote 2012 and bear in mind, are you impressed with the "change". We are witnessing centralized governmental control be it local or national, be it socialist or however you wish to label these policies which have now resulted in the municipalities, states and federal governments now running out of money. And yes, there will be those that say just increase taxes and remove subsidies. But I say, the stimulus was primarily waste; the spending is wasteful so why would I want to feed this waste with more revenue?
A note to City Management: when will the city start promoting policies to enhance efficiencies and focus on the common needs of its citizens. And forgo the special projects under the guise it is for all the citizens.
Would we want a race track paid for by the citizens just because we could potentially use it, but in actuality only a few enthusiasts would benefit.
So rather than expansion of services and facilities, can we start with a primer:
And get back to basics, like a functional financial accounting system and IT department to keep score. Or do we need a new expanded Community Center?
God help us!
