"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

O plan too cheap: Rangel (D-NY)

Let's get this straight. Cong Rangel is mad because there is not enough money being spent on Obamacare which is spending $900B over 10 years while Obama says he will veto anything that adds 10 cents to the deficit. What are we missing? With $900B being spent on this healthcare boondoggle, they don't have enough money to take care of the poor?

Guess the Democrats were used to being in charge before the Internet because their rationalizing their agenda makes no sense to anyone who can read and comprehend. Do they think we cannot do the math or will forget what was said. A new day has dawned where we want accountability from our elected officials will be able to find that accountability or lack thereof.

You would think Rangel with all his problems on lying to IRS, etc., would not be out in front but it shows the arrogance of those who break the law who still sit as Democrat Chairmen in the US House.
