I listened to the President speak to the nation a few nights ago and the bottom line was that he urged Americans to call their elected officials and urge them to “make a deal.”
Now, I don’t know how you feel, but I called my officials and told them that they’d better not “deal” if they ever want to see another of my votes!
It is the Deals that have put us where we are today.
It is the Deals that have created a debt that my grandchildren will never be able to pay.
It is the Deals that have cost many their retirement funds.
It is the Deals that could very well take this country to the bottom before it is over.
No, Mr. President, I will not be asking for any of your Deals. The New Deal of my parents’ generation began paving this road to no where, and the Deal you offer today will push us right on over the cliff. However, believe it or not, it is not just your actual “deals” alone that are the problem…nor are they the only danger.
No, worse than the Deals themselves are the mind games you and your Congress play. You are perfectly aware that the American market runs on emotion, and you are equally aware that your words of Deal or No Deal have the power to eradicate the retirement funds of thousands…and yet you are willing to sacrifice those American people…and all in the name of your party. Shame on all of you!
