Udall and Bennet need to look to their own before blaming the House Representatives. The House themselves are looking at better stopping self-serving abusive items and cutting costs to insure our country has a better future with hopefully less debt. The majority of the leaders in the House understand that potentially all bills which come up for renewal need to be closely reviewed and have any extraneous trash eliminated to cut costs. Also they seem to better understand that items needed should be in separate bills and not have a Farm Drought issue hampered by SNAP food stamp bickering.

The Senate has not passed a budget and before Senator Udall or Senator Bennet play any “petty party blame game” they should first insure that any extraneous trash is cleaned from the Senate Farm Bill. The Senate Farm Bill wants to in essence “grandfather” rural communities who no longer qualify as rural and are self-sufficient. The purpose of rural programs is to help very small struggling communities grow and become self-sufficient, not to become a Welfare System for self-sufficient communities who have already received past benefits wanting more. Our Country and Citizens can no longer afford such self-serving actions being added to current or future legislation.

Ladies and gentlemen our country is broke and going more broke by the minute. We need individuals to stand up and make tough decisions and we ourselves need to be willing to offer to our legislator options regarding what we feel is necessary and what we truly believe can be cut. If we have legislators who are going to play any “blame games” when they have their own legislative trash in bills within their own backyard, then potentially they need to be replaced with someone who is willing to make the tough choices. We can no longer afford to continue down this socialism path which is causing chaos in European countries overseas.

Our founding fathers knew the best government was a Republic which offered freedom of choice, the question then becomes, “How wise were the choices made?” Our government backed by We the People can either make or break this great nation depending on our choices made and how they affect us both now and in the future. Let's please choose wisely ...
