Palin: D.C.: Cut the Drama. Do Your Job.

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on February 26, 2013

sarah_palin35The following was posted to Sarah Palin’s Facebook page earlier today.  I do believe the Mama Grizzly just roared and as usual, her message is “right on”!

Americans are sick and tired of yet another ginned-up crisis. D.C. needs to grow up, get to work, and live within its means. The real economic Armageddon looming before us is our runaway debt, not the sequester, which the President advocated for and signed into law and is now running around denouncing because he never had any genuine intention of reining in his reckless spending.

Remember that this sequestration deal came about because of the long debt ceiling standoff in the summer of 2011. It wasn’t the ideal outcome for anyone, but it did at least include real deficit reduction of about $110 billion per year for 10 years, which is still nowhere near enough to close our massive deficit. Keep in mind that since the sequester passed, the President has already hit American families and small business owners with his tax increases, or “more revenue” as he likes to call it. The American public doesn’t want tax increases; we want government to rein in its overspending.

If we can’t stomach modest cuts that would lower federal spending by a mere 0.3% per year out of a current federal budget of $3.6 trillion, then we might as well signal to the whole world that we have no serious intention of dealing with our debt problem.

If we are going to wet our proverbial pants over 0.3% in annual spending cuts when we’re running up trillion dollar annual deficits, then we’re done. Put a fork in us. We’re finished. We’re going to default eventually and that’s why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest.

If we ARE serious about putting our fiscal house in order, then let’s stop the hysterics, tighten our belts, and take our medicine.

– Sarah Palin

 

Prior to the Facebook posting, Palin also tweeted a related message:

America’s sick & tired of yet more ginned up crisis. DC: Grow up. Get to work. Go around lefty obstructionists then get out of workers’ way.

    Hi Sarah – followed you since 08. Thanks for all you do. But your insistence that they tuck it up and do their job in DC is never going to happen. They lack courage (lack of values). The sequester tactic is because they are all trying to “let” it happen rather than make it happen to avoid taking direct responsibility. In the end they will let crisis drive it. They all know it needs to happen but want to take advantage of America’s collective 6 month memory span. After 6 months, the voter will be as clueless as they were when they re-elected this lying failure President of the USA. Its so easy. Just lie. Change how you calculate unemployment a month before election day and poof! Failure becomes success. Keep unemployment higher than it has been for 4 years straight and it becomes the new norm. How can this country survive with that many voters just lookin for a handout?

    I suggest to look to the government waste reduce bureaucrats salaries and pensions, reduced senators, congressman and staff salaries and pensions, stop foreign aid, cut UN payments, identified fraud in welfare, section 8, food stamps, WIC
    programs, no more health benefits for illegal aliens no more SS benefits for senior coming from third world countries, no
    more disabilities benefits for new arrive rs to America.. Make Japan, Germany, S Korea, and other countries to cover
    the costs of our troops in their territories
