The fine line between politics and reality has become so blurred that the truth couldn’t be found in Washington if it was written on the Goodyear blimp highlighted with fireworks! I refer to this as “Democrat doublespeak”, also known as, talking out both sides of your mouth, or just plain gibberish. And all this coming from our elected leaders, such is our sad state of affairs.
Let’s take a look at this from the middle of the aisle. The U.S. Senate, run by whomever, has not passed a budget in the last 5 years. This is against the law! A Continuing Resolution (CR) has been submitted, again, because, did I mention, the Senate has not passed a budget in five years. And did I also mention that it was against the law not to pass a budget?
The CR submitted by Congress originally had a clause to defund Obamacare, but was changed at the last minute to delay the individual mandate 1 year, like it has been for all of the president’s friends; the unions, certain businesses, and other special folks. The Senate, without discussion, voted it down. So Congress tried it again, sending it back to the Senate with a simple change to close the loophole in Obamacare allowing Congress and Senators to “opt out”. Once again, without discussion, the Senate voted against it.
Wait a minute! Isn’t it already in the U.S. Constitution that Congress shall make no law that it doesn’t have to follow or that doesn’t apply to them? Why would the Senate vote to allow our U.S. Representatives to “opt-out”? They voted against a Constitutional law. Do they think the law doesn’t apply to them? Apparently so.
Then there is the president. He’s said nothing about the illegal actions of the Senate run by his team but the way he is beating on the Republicans makes it seem like he is running for a third term. Instead of spreading lies like “this has never happened to any other president” perhaps the president should check with his staff before making those statements or maybe just fire them because lately they have been getting many of the stats wrong. In actuality, this has happened 17 times since the 1970’s, 12 of which were under the control of Democrats.
