CONGRESS: Our kids will pay for entitlement explosion

Hurrah, hurrah, the government is now open again. We now no longer have to worry about being ticketed by furloughed park rangers. The debt limit has been raised, and the spending machine continues. How wonderful!

How dare our Congress get in the way of this. Our debt is now $17 trillion. This debt will be forced on our children and grandchildren to cover. Doesn’t our Congress know that they are not allowed to vote on their own budget? They are supposed to approve of what the king says. Why did we have a revolution anyway?

We are continuing to witness generational theft. The compassionate Democrats are now overcharging our healthy children with expensive health care insurance premiums under Obamacare, only to undercharge the old and the unhealthy. They refuse to deal with the entitlement explosion that our young will be stuck having to pay for. They seem to do all this while saying they are here to help the children.

How long will our young continue to be fooled into voting for the looting of their future?
