An open letter to President Obama|
How about this one:
The Republicans came up with a budget in the Senate. Please make sure the House looks at it, and start negotiating compromises. It has been 3 years since there was a Constitutionally mandated budget.
While neither side can believe that their budget proposal is end-all, at least there was a proposal from the Senate, and none came from your House.
Also, please have the government get out of "saving and investing" in businesses. Too many businesses went under without getting millions in loan guarantees; if you save one, save them all. Let the Free market dictate how companies grow or fail. But, by taxing the businesses to fund these monies, you will automatically generate failure from smaller companies. Companies that can use their money do invest in others or themselves are inherently stronger than those dependent on government cash and subsidies.
That's slightly backwards, actually. The Republicans in the House passed a budget; the Democratic-controlled Senate has passed none.
Hehee...oops. Forgot who had which part.
