Obama wants the Congress to pass a budget. (Fat chance!) He wants it to raise the debt ceiling so our nation can pay its bills. (Ha!) And he wants something else.
“You should expect some compassion; you should expect some compromise,” Obama told the autoworkers. “You should expect the conviction of leaders who wake up and go to work every day, not to tear something down, but to build something better.” (Oh, stop. You’re killing me. This is just too funny.)
Unlike some, I don’t fear a shutdown of our national government. I fear a shutdown of our national conscience.
Last week, Congress voted to cut $40 billion from the food stamp program over the next 10 years, even though food stamps keep many working people, including military families, from slipping into poverty.
Cutting off food? Really? Is this what our country has come to?
