Representative Paulson:

I have been watching the antics of both the House and Senate on the issue of the short term budget bill and I can honestly say that I’m getting sick of it. This is not what we in the Tea Party were expecting when we spent time and money to get conservatives elected.

I see that republicans have called for $61 billion in cuts for this year. What about next year, you going to try for maybe $70 billion. Be real careful not to set the bar too high, wouldn’t want to see you fail. Except you are failing and miserably at that. This whole idea of the conservatives not being able to come up with more than $61 billion in cuts against Obama’s $1.1 trillion budget is truly absurd and shameful.

Do you and your congressional conservative colleagues really believe that you were elected to cut a percent of a percent off the budget? It truly appears that way to me. With the exception of the Tea Party representatives in this congress it looks to me like the same old, same old.

Obviously, its too late to modify whats in the mill for the current 3 week continuing resolution, but as far as the next one, its time for a major change.

What I would like to see is a $500 billion cut to the budget for this year. The elimination the Dept. of Education, Dept. of Energy, foreign aid and the Federal Reserve along with privatizing the Post Office and Amtrak. When this fails the Senate, shut the government down and keep it shut down until it does pass the senate.

While all this may seem draconian, it pales to what is on the horizon if this doesn’t happen. If you have ever read the history of countries that have tried to finance themselves out of debt by printing money, you understand that the outcome is allways the same. Hyperinflation! How draconian would that be for the American public? Do you really want to continue pushing your luck by not cutting spending and having the Fed print more money? Or, more accurately, pushing America’s luck ………………….

The house of cards of the good old boy politics in Washington is going to come down one way or the other. This can’t be sustained. It appears to me that in the last election which brought the conservatives to power in the House, that in fact the people were not looking for bi partisanship or a new gentler tone. They are looking for you folks to take charge and stop President Obama and his minions from further trashing of our Constitution and driving our nation into financial ruin. If a rather vociferous urinating contest breaks out, so be it.

If $61 billion is all you folks up there can find to cut, please let us all know that, so we can start the process of finding people that will be able to save the United States.
