Congress Fails Once Again
Unfortunately, none of us are laughing about an unsustainable tsunami-style government, unchecked by law, ethics, or common sense.
My ten-term congressman has proposed a Balanced Budget Amendment that according to his website, has the support of a majority in the House. I’m guessing that means the Republican majority? But none of the Republicans, save Representative Ron Paul of Texas is seriously hard at work trying to deal with the real reason Washington is spending the country into fiscal oblivion.
Any balanced budget amendment, like so many things proposed and talked about in Congress, is a feel-good band-aid and nothing more. Empty words for the presumed sheep out here in the heartland, to convince us the incumbents are really serious this time, honest they are.
Ron Paul, co-sponsor with only 101 congressional allies of H.R. 459, to “Audit the Fed,” understands that with the Congressional printing press in the basement, no balanced budget amendment will have teeth. A Federal Reserve unaudited, and unrestrained to help big banks around the world at the expense of average Americans struggling to pay mortgages and deal with food and fuel inflation, will simply print enough money to offset any imbalance.
The theatrical debate fawning courage to cut up to $38.5 Billion budget took eight days during which the budget deficit grew by $54.1 Billion according to the Bureau of Public Debt. The $1.4 Trillion annual deficit driving the total to an unprecedented $14.3 Trillion in government borrowing is a tragedy. In my mind, this is a serious crime against the country, and our children and grandchildren.
We are tired of the games played by long-term incumbents and establishment members of the two titanic political parties. It is time to stop government agencies from demanding their annual increases, and expanding their missions without accountable results.
The first step for Virginians in the Sixth District is to replace the incumbent. We need committed representatives that understand how we got into this mess, and will buck the system to lead the way to solvency. That means no shaking hands across the aisle at the miniscule 1% cut agreement. That means no sloganeering about “balanced budgets” rather than drastically reduced spending and elimination of major government agencies, in accordance with the barely breathing Constitution.
Only with a new congress of citizen legislators we can finally audit the Fed.

The Price of Gas, and the Cost of Hot Air
