Once a politician always a politician! Two men are proving that statement is incorrect; we have two new age politicians who are defying the Old Political watchdog’s stance of more spending, more deficit and more Government control.
Ronald Reagan expressed this sentiment when he said, To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last -- but eat you he will. Ronald Reagan
Let’s not be the generations who sit back and continue feeding the crocodiles, because the politicians are eating us one piece at a time. Condemning or blaming politicians for their irresponsible ways isn’t a solution, not even a band aid – we must step up to the bat and relieve them of their duties in 2012.
Americans can make 2012 one of the greatest years of our time, if we work together exterminating the White House and removing all of the “Snuckers,” and varmints that have taken up housekeeping living the good life on our time and money.
Many of them have just held their positions too long and lost their way, others are oblivious to the responsibilities that were endowed up them. Remember two things about those holding positions in the Congress; (1) They are our employees, and (2) They aren’t fulfilling their pledge to Americans.
We’ve spent three years of misery while the Obama, the House and the Senate play their vicious game of “Gotcha.” They have worn out their welcome while playing the race card, the poor card and the blame card; in three years they’ve sat on their fannies as our Nation slips into a financial abyss.
As often happens, positive results sometimes are derived from excessive suffering and pain – two men almost from different planets making an unprecedented move for politicians. House Budget Committee Ranking Member Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) have crafted an awesome idea that will concentrate on wasteful Government spending, reducing the National Deficit and opening up a level playing field for job creation.
A Republican and a Democrat sitting side by side working as a team to help Americans “Take Back Our Country” it’s a classic first step that will open the way to rebuild our Nation’s weak foundation and they need our help.
Paul and Chris have for the first time in three years proposed a plan that would start the economic wheels rolling again, possibly even deflect a drop in our credit rating and this plan will encourage both businesses and consumers if they can get it passed. So of course there’s always an “IF,” but if Americans make their voice audible this time, Congress will probably have to make the first big positive move in three years.

Here’s a portion of Paul Ryan’s speech/ and or statement about the new bill. Congress will truly have worse than egg on their face if they ignore Chris Van Hollen and Paul Ryan’s proposal.
"The fiscal and economic challenges facing our nation are immense. In addition to the alarming budget deficit and painful jobs deficit, Washington's failure to tackle these challenges fuels a growing credibility deficit. For years, policymakers - in both political parties - have failed to serve as responsible stewards of American families' hard-earned tax dollars. Too many politicians continue to make empty promises to those they serve, spending money we don't have on government programs that don't work.
The stakes are too great to continue to kick the can down the road. I believe that leaders can – and must – work together to meet these challenges by advancing structural reforms to the drivers of the debt and pro-growth solutions to create a more conducive environment for job creation."
Instead of sitting here saying poor us – contact John Boehner, Harry Reid, our Senators and of course Barack Obama and let our voices be heard. We want this bill passed, passed and passed!
May God Bless America
