The ‘Big Compromise’, also known as the $38.5 Billion-dollar spending resolution faced stiff objections from key Republican Congressman, most notably Representatives Allen West and Steve Southerland. The deal struck by Speaker Boehner, Senator ‘Dingy’ Harry Reid(D) and the ‘Messiah’ himself, has labeled Boehner and many of the Republicans who are backing the deal as squishy compromiser because they settled for this paltry dollar amount instead of pursuing deeper cuts-Republicans could have secured deeper cuts, but in the name of fairness, opted to accept the aforementioned cut of $38.5B.
“I voted against the $38.5 billion spending resolution because it falls short of achieving the significant cuts necessary to alleviate our burgeoning financial crisis. If we are truly serious about restoring fiscal sanity in Washington, it is going to take a lot more than nibbling around the edges of our $14 trillion debt. These times require tough decisions and visionary leadership to avoid a financial crisis on the level experienced by countries across Europe. Hardworking North and Northwest Floridians are fighting to do more with less and it is time for the federal government to do the same.” – Congressman Steve Southerland (R-FL)
