Perriello: If you don’t tie our hands, we will keep stealing

posted at 6:26 pm on March 18, 2010 by

Truer words have never been spoken, but surely not on purpose. Rep. Tom Perriello (Democrat, of course) accidentally admits the dirty little truth about politicians. Repeat after me:

If you don’t tie our hands, we will keep stealing.

And yes, he really said it.

This isn’t exactly shocking information. You can see it in the stimulus package, the omnibus bill, the new jobs bill, and of course, Obamacare. You can see it in the endless spending and spending and spending and spending currently going on in Washington by the looters who call themselves Democrats. They’re spending like there’s no tomorrow, and why should they care? They aren’t the ones who will have to shoulder the burden; our children and grandchildren will. It’s like the teenager who goes crazy with Daddy’s credit card because they know that someone else will have to pay for the bill.

Obamacare in particular is the worst theft that Democrats are committing, though. Americans are against it. They don’t want it, and they’re seeing it rammed down our throats anyways, against our will. Costs will skyrocket, care will be rationed, and the quality of health care will plummet. Democrats don’t care. They’re ignoring the voices of thousands upon thousands of Americans fighting them tooth and nail to stop this monstrosity, but Democrats are passing it anyways. Why? Because it increases the size and scope of the federal government, thereby giving them more power and money. They don’t care if Obamacare wrecks it for the rest of us — they’re exempt!

Perriello is letting us know that Democrats are nothing more than power-and-money-hungry addicts begging for someone to do an intervention. Unless we tie their hands, he says, they’ll keep stealing. Well, America, you’ve been informed. Let’s take that burden of responsibility off their hands this November.

yippee! he’s my Congressman. but don’t worry, he is on his way out. we have a little primary & some TEA party tension down here, but we’ll get him out in November. I promise.

But, for your information, Organizing for America, the SEIU/hippie college student “volunteer” arm of the DNC, has targeted 2 races for November. One is the Colo. Senate race. and the other is little old 5th CD, Va.

we’re going big time.
