Criminal Intent – Congress Plays Poker With America’s Fiscal Health – Gambling on November Gains Rather Than Fiduciary Duty

Just for my readers information…the Congress/White House continue to play their political games as they ignore their budgetary duties and attempt to hide the truth of our countries fiscal condition. That this administration puts their own personal gain and electoral agenda in front of the economic health of America is not only sickening…it is criminal in it’s intent.

From The Heritage Foundation: “House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) once said that the ‘most basic responsibility of governing is to pass a budget.’ Yesterday it became clear that Congress has decided to shirk that responsibility, as word broke that the House likely will not pass a budget resolution for the first time since the modern budget process was created in 1974.

“The news came from Rep. Hoyer himself, who said “It’s difficult to pass budgets in election years because they reflect what the [fiscal] status is.” In other words, with November looming on the horizon, the left doesn’t want their constituents to realize just how much Congress is spending and how high taxes will go.

Heritage’s Brian Riedl explains:

Members of Congress are likely hesitant to show the American people how seriously they have damaged America’s current long-term budget picture. This Congress has refused to pare back runaway spending and deficits, and many of its Members may now hesitate to pass a budget resolution that shows the resulting trillion-dollar deficits. Instead, Congress is likely to try burying this vital issue in this election year.
