    It’s so vexing to me, these “leaders” think it is great victory to celebrate because they CREATED MORE DEBT, increased the height of the mountain we are already facing.

    Education no doubt needs money and reform, but NEVER by borrowing more that will crush our children and wipe out the NEXT generation’s chance and hope to have a good life. They will be working to pay off money borrowed in 2012 by their parents — yes, you and I permit it by voting schemers, cheats, and financial fools into office. This GOB has NO FISCAL DISCIPLINE.

    NOT ANOTHER SHILLING OF DEFICIT SPENDING.
