We’ll try to keep you updated on this. It is very possible that at the last minute either the president, senate, or the House may cave in to one another and come up with a compromise settlement. The President has dragged his feet on this thing and has played brinkmanship politics, running off to New York to honor his old friend, then nemesis, Community Organizer and often pain in the neck racial crusader Al Sharpton. That necessitated the late night meeting in the White House between House Speaker John Boehner, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and President Barak Obama.
Apparently, they came up with nothing. Talks will, however, continue Thursday, Friday, and into Saturday morning in some form or fashion. Republicans blame the Democrats and they blame the Republicans. The Tea Party electees came to Congress wanting spending cuts of $100 million and the president and his side said no.
Finally, the Republicans came down to $60 million and the Democrats wouldn’t negotiate. A wily bunch, these donkeys are, wouldn’t you say? Now the President is at about $30 million and the Republicans are at $40 million.
I wonder if Donald Trump wants the presidency so bad that he’s prepared, along with Barak Obama, to buy the presidency (Trump’s own money against Obama’s union money) then the two should split the ten million difference and get this one settled. I’m sure Trump would be willing. But would the socialistic/communistic union boss4es go along?
You see, it isn’t Barak Obama who decides things these days for america. It’s the unions he’s beholden to, so it’s the union bosses who run America and it will have to be the unions who decide if they will go along with coffing up $5 million to get this matter settled. I’m sure Trump would pay $5 million. Look what that would do for his prestige as a bone fide presidential candidate. Image, electing as president a man who could buy the United States. Comment on that below please. And comment on this also: If America can go without government workers in the nation’s capitol for a few days or weeks, maybe we don’t need such a large federal government. I think this is an opportunity for the nation to see how well things run without so many bureaucrats.
