Don't Blame Boehner

It is past time for an honest dialogue. Tell the people the truth about our debt and about the corruption in high places. If we don't stop the waste, spending, fraud and abuse by government and related entities, there will be nothing left for anybody, not the rich, not the poor, not even a morsel left for a mouse. It is past time for dealing with those who defile our Constitution and rule by theft. No more "deals." No more "compromise." Just right the wrongs and tell the truth. Truth wins out every time. We must rid ourselves from the likes of those who lead us into the Valley of Wrong, and who divide us. They stand in front of the mike each and every day wailing about everything but the real problem. The charade must end.

When you lose an election, you get frustrated. When you're sitting in a subpar 2 percent economy, and are faced with tax hikes rather than marginal rate reductions, you get even more frustrated. And when you're staring at $47 trillion in spending over the next 10 years, and $8.6 trillion in deficits, your frustration levels climb even higher.

These are among the frustrations that led a number of House Republicans to pull back from Speaker John Boehner's so-called Plan B. Nobody looked good on the Republican side when Thursday night's vote fell through. But you have to understand their frustrations....
