Let me get this straight: Our government shut down because we can't agree on how to spend the imaginary money that we don't have.
We are $16 trillion in debt.
Which of our representatives will actually stand up to provide us with a solution to our insane national debt instead of voting back spending for one non-essential department at a time, to get us right back where we started?
Who has the integrity to fight for the only published budget corrective action that will cut $1 trillion/year in spending after implementation by eliminating five non-essential cabinet departments (Energy, HUD, Commerce, Interior and Education), abolishing the Transportation Security Administration, abolishing corporate subsidies, stopping foreign aid, ending foreign wars and returning most other spending to 2006 levels?
Wake the heck up, Congress and Senate.
This well-documented plan already exists. Just Google "Ron Paul Plan to Restore America."
We need this solution now. I implore us all to study this plan for ourselves and demand it be implemented by our representatives by contacting them at writerep.house.gov right now.
