Congressman Steven Horsford, D-Nev. 4th Congressional District
Mr.Horsford, I cannot disagree with you more strongly in regard to our countries budget morass. To me, the Republican members are the adults in the room and the Democrats are the spoiled children. For the last four years this country has lacked a budget. Two of those years your party controlled the House, Senate and Presidency. This country needs to live within it's means. It needs to prioritize its funds through clear minded planning. Planning that is lacking in our government. I cannot afford to fund all the programs the Democratic Party insist we need. We need to make the right decisions today to affect our future in a positive way. I don't believe giving politicians another dime will help those decisions in a positive way. Make the cuts without raising my taxes or anyones for that matter.Greg. –Feb 20, 2013 17:19:04 PM
