545 Individuals Solely Responsible for our Country’s Crises

Michael Simone : March 09, 2011

Have you ever wondered, if both Democrats and Republicans are against deficits, why do we have a $13 trillion deficit? If all the politicians are against inflation, why do we have inflation? Or, If all the politicians are against higher taxation then, why do we have ever increasing high taxes?

  • You and I don't propose a federal budget.  The president does
  • You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations.  The House of Representatives does.
  • You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.
  • You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does.
  • You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court Justices equals 545 human beings out of the 300,000,000 million Americans are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems and crises that plagues all Americans and our country today and its future.

  Funny how those same 545 human beings spend much of their energy and time convincing you that what they did is not their fault.  They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
