I voted for you on the off chance you could slow, if not stop, the destruction of this country. I did NOT vote for you to go to Washington and roll over for President Obama.
I am glad the sequestration is about to kick in. As a nation, if we cannot cut 3 cents of every dollar currently proposed to be spent, they we are in deep doodoo already. I’m not happy with the defense cuts because I happen to think we live in a more dangerous world than ever before, and I think national security should be a priority.
The Defense Department is railing about not being able to fuel its ships or deploy the carrier fleet USS Harry S. Truman. I agree we need to be battle ready. To the Republicans, I suggest passing a one paragraph BILL funding that carrier fleet for one year. Offset the cost by cutting foreign aid to Egypt [or to some OTHER country that loves us] in the same amount. Send it to Obama. He can sign it or not – it becomes his decision: NATIONAL SECURITY OR FOREIGN AID.
We want border security. Pass a one page bill funding everything required to secure the borders. Offset these expenditures by cutting an equal amount from the EPA. Send it to Obama. He can sign it or not – it becomes his decision: BORDER SECURITY OR MORE REGULATIONS.
I did NOT vote for you to go to Washington and roll over for President Obama. Start cutting spending, one line item at a time.
STOP GIVING AWAY AMERICA TO THE SOCIALIST IN THE WHITE HOUSE!
As for my neighbor State of Virginia, which has thousands of defense employees and contractors that may be furloughed or laid off, including many at the Pentagon, Norfolk shipyards, and Hampton Roads, to mention a few…. I say this. You voted for Obama, your state went in his column last November…. Elections have consequences. Deal with it.
