The longer the media splashes its front pages and lead stories with the disgusting stories of Rep. Charles B. Rangel (D-NY) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), the public perception of Congress will continue to plummet. It certainly does not take a genius to acknowledge that the public’s opinion of Congress is in need of a good scrubbing, and it remains baffling that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) continues to ignore the obviously necessary action from her lofty perch.
The problems confronting all members of Congress are not Republican or Democrat issues, because the cloud hovers over every single member of the Senate and House of Representatives. Corruption and self-serving behavior has finally caught up with these over-privileged, egotistically fiscally reckless public servants. If Speaker Pelosi does not act swiftly to “clean the swamp” (her words), both her party and her personal survival will be placed in further jeopardy.
With less than 100 days till the November 2010 election Pelosi has little or no time to waste. Far be it from me to provide her with advice, but I will not be surprised to see her arrogantly stone-wall the situation operating under the assumption that she can weather the storm. This time Pelosi cannot and will not be left standing once the clear light of day prevails. The Democrats may pull off a majority in the House, but they are permanently injured and their strong-arm tactics can not survive with lesser majorities.
Watch for the rats to start jumping off the ship. The strength of the “Tea Bags” is getting stronger with each passing day, and before long liberals and Democrats will be consuming tea in greater quantity and quality before this coming November election. Pelosi’s recall of Congress to jam the $26 billion jobs bill down American’s throats paid-off the Teacher’s Unions, but will come back to haunt her in the long-run. Bail-outs are unsustainable.
Months ago I predicted a TAX REVOLT, and I am more and more convinced that it will occur. The taxpayer financial wells are dry! The continuing spending is affecting the recession recovery and Wall Street markets in a decidedly adverse way and all Congress seems to do is find more reasons to spend/borrow more money.
