Nancy Pelosi recently stated America does not have a spending problem. Pelosi's statement is emblematic of the skewed logic exhibited by President Obama and most of his Democratic enablers.
They refuse to acknowledge that the federal government wastes billions of dollars annually while taxing its citizens into poverty and going deeper into debt.
One has to look no further than the Obama stimulus program to see examples of what I am talking about.
Obama touted the stimulus program as something that would be dedicated toward providing money for "shovel-ready" jobs involving America's infrastructure. He, with the help of Democrats such as Sen. Jay Rockefeller and Rep. Nick Joe Rahall, crammed it down our throats.
What have taxpayers received from this so-called stimulus program?
If one travels between South Charleston and St. Albans on U.S. 60, a fine example is observable in a glorified bike path.
The state of West Virginia, using federal stimulus money, built this boondoggle that only a suicidal biker would care to use - a waste of thousands of dollars.
Another example is the fact that West Virginia wasted many millions of stimulus dollars on Internet routers.
And don't forget the half billion wasted on the green energy, now bankrupt, Solyndra experiment.
I am sick and tired of Democrats carping about Republicans wanting to cut vital services to balance the budget.
They say firemen and policemen will be laid off if Republicans have their way.
Nonsense, there is much fat in our budget and a myriad of ways to cut it.
