The Prez is Pizzed Off Part 2...

Washington Post Op Ed today the President takes to the pages of the paper to tell the people how he feels and remind us he won the election last year by a large margin.

In other words ENOUGH IS ENOUGH people... back off..get over these tax cuts crap and on with the business of getting my recovery plan passed and out to the people.

I think he is speaking to Democrats and Republicans both here. Remember he said he wanted no pork, just a clean bill that will help put people back to work. Yes, there will be some tax cuts in it but not the bloated crap they republicans want in there.

Last night I was posting some of the stuff the Senate was playing with as they were going back and forth. It was changing every 5 to 10 minutes as they were voting on bills. Some were being passed some weren't. And there was no method to there madness.

Here is some of what the Prez has to say:

By now, it's clear to everyone that we have inherited an economic crisis as deep and dire as any since the days of the Great Depression. Millions of jobs that Americans relied on just a year ago are gone; millions more of the nest eggs families worked so hard to build have vanished. People everywhere are worried about what tomorrow will bring.
What Americans expect from Washington is action that matches the urgency they feel in their daily lives -- action that's swift, bold and wise enough for us to climb out of this crisis.
Because each day we wait to begin the work of turning our economy around, more people lose their jobs, their savings and their homes. And if nothing is done, this recession might linger for years. Our economy will lose 5 million more jobs. Unemployment will approach double digits. Our nation will sink deeper into a crisis that, at some point, we may not be able to reverse.

So, as you see he is wanting us to hurry, but get it right. Well not us, but the congress. And yes us, because they work for us, even if they forget. So, again, I am saying, call, write, email your senator, congress man or woman, even your governor and urge them to contact each other to get this legislation called the Recovery and Reinvestment Act passed. They must vote for it. Not against it.

Even if they are Republicans, you must call them, Especially if they are Republicans. They are threatening a filibuster to stop this bill, and if they do that, then let them suffer the consequences. Because I am sure they will.

It is good reading for your early morning...nice to have coffee start your day with. And it is sure to set the hair of the Republican's on fire.. It certainly did the Morning Joke...He was about to have a heart attack when MEEKa read it to him...
