Pointed Political Rant

Listen up, members of the United States Congress. Mom has run out of patience with every last one of you. 

Federal law requires Congress to authorize the government to borrow any money that is needed to pay for the programs that Congress has passed.

What is not clear about this statement? Get off your fat, pompous, grandstanding asses and sign on to raise the debt ceiling! Did you not understand when you voted to pass any of the various bills that at some point there would have to be cash to cover the expense? Even if you did not vote in the affirmative these provisions passed nonetheless to become law and therefore must be funded! This is nothing new! Congress has voted to raise the debt ceiling 94 times since 1944! Exchange your gutless grumbling for acting like grown-ups! And do your homework next time before you vote on a bill that will require funding by the Federal Government.

It's awfully convenient how they keep giving themselves raises while simultaneously telling the lower- and middle-class Americans that that we don't deserve a break.
(The expiration of the 2% payroll tax break means that my 3% raise this year is essentially washed out)
