Almost every special interest group got something from spending bill

To The Daily Sun,

The Washington establishment, the media and Republican and Democrat officeholders and other officials, are patting themselves on the back for passing a $1.1 trillion government funding package without a government shutdown. Yeah! Yeah. Yeah?

What problems did it solve for the American people?

Did it end illegal immigration that hurts so many Americans by taking jobs, driving down wages, committing crimes, driving up welfare costs and thus taxes, flooding schools with illegal alien children and reducing the teaching effectiveness for American children? No. In fact, it funds "resettlement" for illegal aliens.

Did it at least end sanctuary cities that protect criminal illegal aliens from deportation? No. Did they stop releasing, rather than deporting, criminal illegal aliens? No.

Did it fix the incompetent vetting process for immigrants and refugees that allowed the Boston bombers, the San Bernardino killers, and other terrorists to enter our country to kill and injure Americans? No.

Did it fix our poor education system and provide guards to protect our children? No. But it funded the failing education establishment.

Did it end corporate welfare? No, It subsidizes or gives special breaks to just about everything from abortions to zoos, including ethanol, solar energy, oil, wind energy, tobacco farmers, government bureaucracies, unions, hedge fund managers, bankers, and hundreds of other special interests.

Did it fix America's excessive tax laws and regulations that drive so many American jobs overseas? No. Almost 3,000 new regulations were added this year. The cost of regulations (embedded in the things we buy) is over $14,000 for each American household.

Did it fix the pending bankruptcy of Social Security and Medicare? No.

Did it fix America's failing roads and bridges? No.

Did it provide tax relief to stressed American taxpayers? No.

Did it repeal Obamacare? No, it funded it, providing relief for many businesses and unions.

Did it balance the budget? No.

What did the American people get? The bill; the cost will be paid by current and future, even unborn, Americans.

However, almost every special interest group got something from this bill. All 535 senators and congressmen are flooding constituents with messages about the "pork" they are bringing home. That "pork," a few pennies on the money citizens send to Washington, is spent based on Washington's, not a state's, priorities.

The senators and representatives who voted for the Omnibus bill betrayed the American people and need to be replaced. From New Hampshire only Congressman Guinta put the interests of the American people above the wants of the special interests.

Democrat greats wouldn't recognize today's party run by Marxists

To The Daily Sun,

On Thursday, I enjoyed reading a letter written by Don Ewing who brought out the truth about "liberals."

First there is nothing liberal about them. They are Marxist-socialists, at least the current crop of there leaders are. They will lie, cheat, steal because they believe anything justifies their ends. Second they use political correctness like thugs use clubs to silence any decent or difference of opinion. (I would also add they are stupid.) We are seeing the results of their heavy-handed tactics first-hand now.

The 14 killed out in California last week and the 129 in Paris are direct results of the narrow-minded thought control tactics the left is trying to impose on us. As it turns out both of the Muslim terrorists in San Bernardino had declared themselves as American-hating, terrorist wannabes as far back as two years ago on social media Internet sites. But know what? Our politically correct Obama/Clinton administration was worried about an invasion of privacy on social media. Stupid, yea, social media is about as private as putting naked pictures of yourself and sending them to the world. As I said stupid, and deadly. That was one attack that could have been prevented.

It's shocking how many Democrats still support and defend Hillary after all the lies she and Obama have told them. Think of all the jobs lost including union jobs. Think of how many companies have already moved overseas thanks to these Marxists. Often they speak of jobs created but when we look most of them are part time, zero benefit low pay jobs.

And who gets rich? Not working families, single moms or minorities, all the folks Obama and Hillary say they are working for. If you have those two on your side better bury what's left of your savings, if any, and get religion because they don't give a fig about you.

My point is these people have nothing in common with great Democratic leaders in the past. Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, John Kennedy would not recognize their party run today by these Marxists. Working people, Democrats included, have been lied to and betrayed. When was the last time you got a raise, a promotion? Are you getting decent job benefits, are job conditions good. Have the costs of food, clothing, shelter at least remained stable or is everything costing more? If your wages are stagnant and costs are going up thank Obama and Hillary. (When Obama causes the cost of electricity to go up the costs of everything goes up.)

And remember when Obama tells you that climate change (global warming) is the cause of ISIS terrorism he also told you you could keep your doctor, your health insurance company, and that a video was the cause of the Benghazi attack.

P.S. so did Hillary.
