McNerney Votes Yet AGAIN to Enslave our Children to a Lifetime of Overbearing Debt!

Original post made by MoveOnMcNerney, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Jul 2, 2010

What more do you need to understand that our very own "representative" is voting to further destroy America and our Children's future? House Budget Committee Ranking Member Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) warned this latest vote was the green light for Democrats to continue their out-of-control spending virtually unchecked. This will enslave our children to a lifetime of debt repayment.

I firmly believe that the impact of the deficit will be felt for a generation or more, as most Americans do. But with over one TRILLION dollars spent on Republican lead wars (roughly 3/4 in Iraq, 1/4 in Afghanistan), I have turned against the GOP, not the dems.

Imagine how far that money would have gone had it been spent to enhance the lives of average Americans through college tuition grants, job training, private enterprise funding, highway and transportation infrastructure, etc. And the human toll of these wars is beyond calculation.

Were those wars "in the budget"? Technically, yes, but that does not mean they are affordable. They were never affordable, and the drag on our country's economy and spirit will last far longer than NcNerney and congressional budget shenanigans.
