There is hope for change

The majority feel our country is headed in the wrong direction. There is excessive irresponsible spending, unacceptable growth of government and actions violating the Constitution.

About 70 percent of citizens opposed the Stimulus bill, which was ineffective, and Obamacare, which is flawed, yet liberal Democrats voted those bills in without reading them, doing the bidding of Pelosi/Reid/Obama! Pelosi stated, “Let’s vote it in so we can find out what’s in it.” What a way to run a business!

Democrats running for re-election are avoiding talking about their support of the Stimulus and Obamacare bills and many are distancing themselves from Obama! Hmmmm.

Some writers fault Republicans, the minority, for obstructing the passing of bills. We need a 2/3 vote policy in Congress to prevent the simple majority, 51 percent, from passing bills which 70 percent of the people oppose! Vote no on California Proposition 25 which would allow a majority vote, instead of 2/3 vote, to pass a budget.

Vote out the Congress legislators who voted for Stimulus and Obamacare. Vote out the California legislators who promote tax increases and refuse to adjust government employee wages and benefits to a reasonable level. There is hope for change this election! Vote!
