    Dear Senator Nelson,
    Dear Senator Rubio,
    Dear Congressman Hastings,

    To accurately represent this average Voter in the budget battle looming for the summer of 2011, the following should be considered:

    1. Deficit Spending MUST be relegated to the history books.

    2. Ground up reformation of our bullshit tax code should be a tool used in conjunction with Spending Reformation. (See # 1.)

    3. Military Spending is NOT a sacred :cow:.

    4. Please don't forget how much the average voter between 30 and 55 has already contributed to Social Security - I expect a return on my investment.

    Thank you for working hard to keep my support.

    An Average American Joe.

    I was thinking... :eusa_think: The federal budget for the year 2010 was $3.5 Trillion +


    That amounts to 70 Billion per state.


    Why are our states going bankrupt...? :confused:

    Dear Poisonous Pelosi and Boxer the Bitch,

    I can sum it up no better than to quote one of your lyin' ass colleagues, "Die Quickly". If I had my way, you would both be in prison for treason against my country. You make me ashamed to be Californian. If you can't do us all a favor and "Die Quickly", have the good grace to leave office - and the country.

    Thanks in advance,
    California Girl

    Simply put, the states are in trouble because they are forced by proximity to the voter to be closer to 'fair' in their tax codes and the middle class has little left in its pocket after the federal government takes it's dip. Fair taxes at the national level will yield fairer taxes at the local level and when it does, a greater interest in local politics would be a good thing.

    We're wasting our time and resources debating things like education and abortion at the national level.

    Just to clarify... my current stake in Social Security is $80,000 and growing daily, with no plans by me to slow it down for 15+ years.

    I expect a return on that investment.
