I’m just a nobody out here in the U.S. Who’s been watching the debt and deficit debates. I have a request for you and the Senate Republicans that I hope you will consider.
I would like to see all the Senate Republicans, seated in their places, and the announcements made that Senate Republicans are here and ready to discuss, debate and vote on the debt ceiling and the budgets of 2011 and 2012.
If need be, I’d like the Ryan Budget used as the template as to the categories to vote on with the cap of 18% of income overall being the goal in government spending. From those numbers, once agreed upon, the deficit cuts could be derived. Consequently, once decided, I’d ask that you then have Speaker Boehner have the House Republicans, seated, and again the announcement made that the House Republicans are seated and ready to discuss, debate and vote on the budget for 2012 and the debt ceiling increase.
If drama theater is the only thing the Democrats and Obama will respond to, then give it to them. Show them that they, their positions, their positioning toward the 2012 elections are not now, nor will they ever be more important than the nation of the United States of America.
Enough is enough. Someone has to tell President Obama that he isn’t any more important than any of the rest of us. If the Democrats, separately and collectively, are unwilling to make that statement, I personally don’t have a problem stepping up to fill that position.
