What are nation’s leaders thinking on budget?

February 26, 2013 

I have two things that are bothering me today.

1: The sequester that’s ready to happen. This plan was passed in the House and Senate. Then it was signed by the president. It was agreed to. Why is everyone trying to blame the other person? You all agreed to it; live with it.

I have to live within my income; why do you feel you do not have to?

2: Why are all of you suggesting cuts to domestic programs and jobs? Our money is being given to foreign countries. I don’t care if they’re friend or foe, it’s taxpayers’ money.

Until we can take care of our own, giving our money away is stupid. I can’t think of a more polite word.
