Everyone once again is watching and waiting for another last minute miracle from the super budget committee that includes only the two party system. Yet once again in a backdoor move that breezed through both the house and senate we have an extension so our politicians get paid and a government shutdown is averted in the nick of time. Look at how they mask this spending bill under the names of Agriculture, FDA, and rural development. Our government can't seem to stop spending as noted in H.R. 2112. Just another band-aide and just another taxpayer funded check for your senators and representatives!
Let's take a closer look at the super committee Incumbents and who they really represent.

You will notice a theme in political giving with Healthcare really stepping it up for both republican and democratic committee members. Banks and Insurance another common theme along with the many other companies that are in bed with Big Government! On the democratic side you see more unions and on the republican side you see more energy companies. VetTheGov in a previous story discussed how your tax dollars fund most of these political PAC funds and how.
VetTheGov would love to pick winners and losers in the upcoming saved by a committee LAST MINUTE decision but the answer is obvious. Only one LOSER and it's you the taxpayer! Until a balanced budget is passed, politicians stop getting paid, Big government and Public companies get out of bed together, politicians STOP unsustainable promises such as Social Security and Pensions, we will only continue seeing band-aides from the corrupt DC politicians. Something to consider is the monopoly money or best known as FIAT money from the Federal Reserve and why we the taxpayers can't peek inside. If you truly follow the money this would be a great place to focus on! Prod a little with your Senator, Representative, and political party leaders about the Federal Reserve and they will likely group you into the NUTTY crazed TEA party membership.
So how can we stop the madness? Let's start demanding politicians not receive any political contributions from anyone other than voters in their districts! Won't get very far here unless We the People stand together on this one! Let's demand investigations into the Federal Reserve! Vote out the Incumbents like the ones above who know very well the troubles we face but have no spine to change status quo because they are on the take! Stop listening to your party’s reasons that if you just vote more of them in they will finally make the necessary changes needed! Stop buying or using a product or service from these companies giving politically for their own bottom line, not yours!
It is DO or DIE time for our future generations and sitting in idle is not the answer. Step up and get involved even on a local basis and start paying attention to every story in the papers and every vote your local and state governments make! It will shock you at first however the more knowledge you gain the more power you will have in helping fix our Country and getting it back on track to greatness! Please watch the video below to understand once again the corruptness in the political world and understand your elected officials follow their golden rule, It's about me not about you!
