The Best Congressman

It’s Tom Price, M.D., representing the 6th District of Georgia.  He’s my Representative, and I’m so proud of him.  He’s a keeper, but we’ve gotta do something about the rest of the duds up there.

As Chairman of the Republican Study Committee, he released this statement regarding the Trillion-Dollar-We’re-All-Going-To-Die-Unless-The-Government-Pays-Off-Liberal-Interest-Groups Bill:

Republican Study Committee Chairman Tom Price (R-GA) issued the following statement amid reports that congressional Democrats and the White House have reached a $789.5 billion deal on their spending package. The negotiations took place behind closed doors, with no public oversight and absolutely no Republican input.
“Once again both Republicans and the American public have been shut out as congressional Democrats and the White House have struck a backroom deal on the so-called stimulus bill,” said Chairman Price. “This bill is the product of political dealing among a group of political insiders. As a result, the final product represents everything that the American people detest about Washington and everything special interests adore.
“Instead of working with all sides to seek solutions, Democrats have refused to heed Republican input. And instead of holding themselves accountable to taxpayers, Democrats dealt with the White House behind closed doors. The product that emerged from the proverbial smoke-filled room might reflect the will of the Democrat majority, but it falls well short of representing the desires of the American public.”

  1. As long as the Democrates and Republicans do not work together to get our country out of the mess this country is in nothing will work. After all the individuals that got us into this mess most of them are still in power.

    The American people have their dreams and goals but the government is slowly killing them also. They have taken away so many of our rights and yet they want more. Our country was founded by individuals who knew what would happen if the government got to much control and believe it or not…it has happened.

    If you have a business, small or large, and you are laying people off just so that you can get some of the stimulus money you should close your doors for ever. I’ve heard people talking in small groups that that is what they are seeing. The government should stay home and leave the American people alone. There are those who will always have their hands out. That will never change but then there are those who will roll up their sleaves and do whatever has to be done.

    The American people whant to know what is happening to their hard earned money that is taken as taxes, or otherwise. I feel that the government to be held accountable for every cent. We have to be held accountable for what we do, so should they. They have gotton away with too much for too long.

  2. Amen, sister!
