Out of control

The Democrats’ viewpoint is our way or no way (no negotiations). As far as I am concerned, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives is doing a good job representing taxpaying people. The Republicans are somewhat keeping the president in check, although they could do better.

When the Democrats were in control of the House, they passed bills without reading or knowing what was in the bills. The Democrats also sent bills with time limits so they could get them passed without knowing what is in the bill.

So what do we get? We got deeper in debt. Now, we owe our soul to China. Our government is out of control. What do you think the big picture looks like for our grandchildren?

Wake up, people. Vote for tea party candidates; Republicans, Democrats or independents.
