I consider myself to be an average American. I am fiscally conservative in that I do not buy anything that I cannot afford. I believe people have a right to live their own lives as they see fit as long as it doesn’t infringe on someone else’s life in a negative manner. I believe people should take responsibility for their own well being in that if money is tight you don’t go out and buy things you cannot afford or don’t need. These are principles I live by. This president and the two houses of government have totally ignored these principles. They spend money they don’t have or reasonably expect to pay back on programs that are nothing but vote getters. They add unnecessary expenditures to bills that have nothing to do with the bill being considered.

They mandate costs to the citizens and then exempt themselves from the same costs. This president has focused on getting the rich to pay more taxes and has ignored the whole rest of the budgetary process. Things come down to the wire and he goes to Hawaii. He spends more time blaming others than fixing problems caused by both parties of government. He would rather find a way around Congress than work with it. Compromise to him is agreeing with what he wants. Have you seen pictures of him when he is denied what he wants? He sulks and blames others for his inability to work with others. He acts like a spoiled child.
