PELOSI THROWING A PARTY TO CELEBRATE ALL THEY HAVE DONE
The above quote is from an invitation by outgoing, (man that sounds good), Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, to also outgoing, House Democrats to attend a ,"victory," celebration to bask in their so called, "accomplishments," during the 111th Congress. A Congress that did pass more legislation than nearly every Congress in our history but just how much of it was truly productive rather than destructive.
This is the Congress that passed Obamacare, the trillion dollar budget busting no result stimulus, followed closely by the 400 billion dollar porkulus bill. This is the Congress that single handily increase the debt by nearly five trillion dollars. This is the Congress that spent more money that all previous Congresses combined from the Washington Presidency through the Reagan Presidency.
This is the Congress that almost forced our Republic from a free society to a Socialist state. This is the Congress that presided over an average unemployment rate of nearly 8% and is leaving with unelmploymen at 10% with unreported numbers closer to 17% . This is the Congress whose constant meddling in private business cost millions of American jobs. This is the Congress that made GM and Chrysler government owned auto companies. This is the Congress that bailed out anything that moved in the financial markets only to force those same financial institutions to march to a government drum.
This is the Congress that gave the root cause of the housing crash, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, a free pass and until their final moments continue to bail out these failed entities with more tax payer money. So if these and many more destructive legislative and spending debacles are something to , "celebrate," then Pelosi and her fellow socialists, have a lot to cheer about.
The reality is that the people of The United States have already held a celebration that truly was a cause to cheer. On November second we celebrated the, "accomplishments," of the 111th Congress by booting Nancy Pelosi and her party of socialists out of power and many of those that supported her destruction of our country out of office. That is celebration and Republic saving I can believe in.
