Those quick to criticize Vice President Biden for his remark about Latinos and our future are part of the reason Obama illegal immigration policy has snaked its way from partisan threats to reality. Americans should pay better attention. Biden’s words are just another take on immigration propaganda that spawned “inextricably linked to the future of the Hispanic community,” a line that has been recited ad nauseam by administration officials for the past several years.
The news that many of us would prefer vermin to a member of Congress at our dinner table should give us pause to consider what the real problem is with Washington. Politicians like to trot out reducing government waste, fraud, and abuse when they don’t want to cut spending, but the problem is not reigning in Federal Government waste.
Now that Barack Obama has his foot in the door with across-the-board tax increases, Democrats are already demanding more before we hear the first wails from middle income America as workers realize that their take home pay has been skimmed by the government.
How can we trust members of Congress who reject term limits? This is a bad time to read the oath that House and Senate members take when they are sworn into office.
