Congress is poised to clear the final $50 billion chunk of emergency aid for Superstorm Sandy relief Monday — and in one vote, it will have used up all the new tax money President Obama won by raising rates on the wealthy in the “fiscal cliff” deal.
The “cliff” … well they’re busily engaged in trying to see if they can kick the can nearer the edge and, by the way, make the “cliff” a little higher while they do that by raising the debt limit … again.
Meanwhile, let’s talk about immigration, gun bans and whatever else our “leaders” can think of to distract us from this pending disaster.
Well, both are still important. Guns, because the state wants a free hand to continue bankrupting us, and they don’t like the idea of an armed citizenry peering angrily over their shoulders, and immigration because that is now a gigantic money sink, and will shortly become an even more enormous sinkhole.
