I Hate Congress

Full of complete idiots. We vote these people in who have absolutely no experience in the fields they make decisions and laws on (perfect example: the economy). Yesterday, Congress went on yet another $pending $pree and approved a $7.7 billion spending bill for Hawaiian canoe trips, research into pig smells, and tattoo removal. You can't make this stuff up, folks!

In his budget request, 
Obama could ask for as much at $750 billion for the financial industry. That's more of our money being poured into a black hole. And Obama has some nerve to talk about "fiscal discipline" and then turn around and spend billions. The estimated running deficit by the end of September 2009 is 1.75 trillion dollars. Glad the government cares.

You may be sure that Obama's folks will structure the numbers so that the bulk of the repayment on this insane spending binge comes due after he leaves office. For all of the complaining he does about a lack of accountability in corporate America, there are few people more adept at hiding debt and fudging numbers than the bean counters of the federal government.

Nice blog- thanks for following.
