First a hat tip to President Obama for most of the following wording. His words blasting Wall Street Bankers for their recent bonuses express sentiments I wish he would send to both houses of Congress.
There will be time for Congress to enlarge government, and there will be time for them to add pork to spending bills. Now’s not that time. That is the height of irresponsibility. It is shameful. And part of what we’re going to need is for the folks in Congress, who are pretending to help, to show some restraint, and show some discipline, and show some sense of responsibility.
If only President Obama would show his commitment to bipartisanship by taking his party to task for their spending rampage. It will be interesting to see if he will sign a stimulus package with no support from the opposition or whether he will be the grownup he claims to be. It would be childish not to veto either the swollen pork spending package recently passed by the House or the bloated pork spending package being considered by the Senate. It would take an adult to stand up to Harry and Nancy.
