Too much lard

The Senate voted yes Wednesday for the Bush tax cuts.
If you don't see a reason why we are in the financial shape we are in, look at all the pork they
have added. We cant get a simple bill through without the folks who are supposed to be looking out for us adding every layer of lard that they can to this bill.
This Congress knows they are done and they are having their last feast.
They also know there was an earthquake on election night. The GOP netted 63 new seats. The red tide that came over state governments in our nation was huge. State houses across America will come into play when it comes to re-districting soon.
But just like they have always done, these folks in D.C. keep saddling our kids with their bill. And that's happening from folks on both sides of the isle.
Just like the health care bill, opposers say no one has read it. It's more than 1,900 pages long. They don't know what's in it., except the price tag.
The Hill.com reports for every page there is $575 million of spending.
We're told by our local congressman they are putting all sorts of last minute deals in it like naming federal buildings after themselves.
Once again, we're told this is just what happens. But it has to stop. The stakes are too high. We must tighten the reins on the spending hose when the new and hopeful, but sensible Congress convenes in January.
