I’ve always said, heaven help Washington if the electorate ever figures out they have the power. One 3 day nationwide strike and this country would be on it’s knees. Just imagine if those “rich” lower middle, upper lower wage workers stop spending money at Wal-Mart, the grocery store and gas stations. Image if they started to put their money in savings instead of buying a new car or stereo or TV. What if they ate at home instead of going out, watched the movies they own instead of going to the theater? Stopped driving their gas guzzling cars and spent even more time with a good book, their family or their church.I think this has the potential to be a brilliant idea. Imagine that...a 3 day spending strike by all the Tea Party people to protest government spending.
If you throw into the mix just how much more we will be spending over the next 10 years once the government seizes control of health care. The spending spree will only get far, far worse. After all, who honestly thinks that the government is going to keep costs of health care down, once they take control? Not even the CBO is saying either the Senate or House bill will do so. The Senate will cost us only 189 billion more, while the House bill is projected to cost $280 billion more. Comments?
