Can a brother get a break? President Obama is asking Congress to raise the Debt Ceiling for the first time in office. Did America forget that under Bush we raised it seven times? Can a Brother get a break? Republicans say that our deficit spending under Obama's first year in office is over 1 Trillion. Did America forget about the Stimulus package that included bailouts for Banks and the Auto Industry? Or to the citizens of this great nation that's out of work? Can a brother get a break? We are fighting two wars over seas that cost tax payers nearly one Billion a week. Republicans demanded tax breaks to the wealthiest Americans without any new plans for generating revenue. I as the question again, Can a brother get a break? For eight years we have watched former president Bush sink us down a hole and the Republican controlled house did nothing to stop him. Where was the Ultra-Conservative or Tea Party then? Speaker Boehner needs to stand up like our President and make the tough choices for our Country. This Mess will take years to get out of, but we all must share in the pain!!!!!!
