In 2004, Sen. Patty Murray campaigned on a slogan of “change.” She told us the country was headed in the wrong direction. In 2008, President Obama also used “change” in his campaign.
Their change ended up being massive spending, increased national debt and more big government. The national debt just passed the $13 trillion mark and has risen $2.4 trillion under Obama, an average of $4.9 billion per day. That’s almost three times the daily average of $1.7 billion under the Bush administration (Washington Times, 6-2).
Americans now believe by 60-65 percent that the country is headed in the wrong direction. Big-spending liberals like Sens. Murray, Reid, Durbin and Schumer along with Speaker Pelosi are taking us down a path that is unsustainable according to Fed Chairman Ben Bernake. I think it is time to show all of them the door before we end up bankrupt like Greece.
