Dear Patriot, In what is becoming a trend, another big government establishment Republican has signaled that we can expect Congressional Republican leadership to blow over like a house of cards when it comes to the debt ceiling now standing at 14.3 trillion dollars. Sen. Mitch McConnell (r-KY) was first to fold and now Sen. John Cornyn (r-TX) said that Republican Senators would accept a "mini" deal on the debt ceiling. It should come as no surprise when establishment Republicans again stabs in the back, the Tea Party movement that gave them power by voting to raise the debt ceiling in return for insignificant cuts. These self serving imposters will not address the underlying spending problem because they don't really believe in limited government. The important question is what do we do about it? It is obvious that our phone calls, faxes, letters, and emails mean nothing to politicians controlled by lobbying interests. They have ignored ads we have run in their home states. In their arrogance, they believe that real Americans are just too stupid to understand the complexity of the situation. Only through this arrogance can they rationalize the institutionalized corruption that THEY have created. for more info: http://www.westernpac.org/2011/07/06/tea-party-betrayal/ EDITED: Please familiarize yourself with USMB copyright policy and posting rules.
