The Debt Ceiling Impasse is Shameful

“your party forces sweeping cuts in education – undermining the security of our future generations”


I usually get most incensed only when the government insists on inserting their legislation into my uterus or pays general disregard to female equality. But the debt ceiling failures plaguing our Congress of late have me so upset, I felt the need to share with Senator Pat Toomey my disappointment in his and his party’s job performance of session.

Dear Senator Toomey,

I have had enough. I am sick and tired of the whining over the failure of the so-called “Cut, Cap and Balance” bill. Frankly, we don’t NEED to pass a new constitutional amendment in order for Congress to do the work ALREADY assigned to it by the Constitution and pass a responsible budget each year. You frequenting every news outlet in the country to complain about opposition to a bill that is unnecessary and, frankly, detrimental to our nation’s security accomplishes nothing.

The fact is republicans refuse to negotiate with democrats to pass a debt ceiling agreement that provides for the national security of our nation. While your party forces sweeping cuts in education – undermining the security of our future generations – you refuse to close tax loopholes for hedge fund managers or eliminate tax-payer funded subsidies for billion dollar oil companies. This is ludicrous!

Take note, Senator! While you traipse about the airwaves broadcasting your tough, ideological talk, the rest of us are waiting for you to really do something good for America. I am waiting on you and your party to start getting serious about protecting our financial security and create realistic solutions for America.

Drop the partisanship and GET REAL!
