      I and my family share the goals for restoring America that Senator McConnell speaks about. He espouses the views the majority of Americans want for this country. The Administration has grossly misunderstood the mandate of the 2008 election. And have irresponsibly governed this country, spending money we do not have any hope of repaying. This President has cost us 3 Trillion in debt, and the Democratic Congress since 2007 has cost us 5 Trillion in debt due to their irrational spending.

      The time is now to repeal the insanity, create grid-lock if the Democrats in the Senate and the President do not cooperate. They either do the will of the People or suffer the consequences.

      What is going on is not what America is about, I am saddened that there is so much negative discourse and partisanship. I think what is happpening is that Wall Street will be (or is) dictating to our government and when that happens it will not be any different than religion controlling governments in Islamic nations, look at Syria ,Iran. We can not have a government when there aren't any taxes. Tax cuts for large corporations needs to be trimmed and folks need to stop seeing taxes as a negative word. Even Buffet and Gates say tax us but I don't see any other titans from corporations repeating their words, although Google says "do no harm". I believe it was a supreme court justice who said "Taxes pay for civilization." I will continue this in another comment.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
