Dear Congressional Republicans (with the exception of Sens. Collins, Snowe and Specter),
But maybe I am not being entirely fair. Some of you do care — that is why you were elected. Some of you genuinely want to fix the economy and return America’s infrastructure to what it should be. My question then is, why didn’t any of you vote for the stimulus package, intended to stimulate the very economy you want fixed?
So, some of you say that it’s too much government in everyone’s business. OK then, let’s take it all the way. We not only don’t want the government directly creating jobs, but we now want roads to disappear, levies to collapse, and schools to crumble to the ground. If I am correct, you are currently employed by the taxpayers and voters of the United States of America, which means your salaries should be reduced to nothing, for that’s too much government in your life. The government is your main source of income; of course, we can’t have that. You know what else? Why even have the government defending us? If there weren’t gun laws regulating everything, we could get our own machine guns to defend ourselves. And best of all, let us get rid of justice. Not in every sense of the word, but just the federal courts. Who needs ‘em?
You can stand in front of the cameras and in the middle of the House chamber screaming “tax cuts,” but what does that create? When my mom gets her tax break in the mail, is she to be expected to build a school, secure minimum wage, and repair the water and electricity systems with that money?
I didn’t think so.
