ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The politicians have once again decided not to decide. They passed another continuing resolution that delays the budget increase and debt-limit hike until December.

The congressional leadership does not want to wait until January; it does not want a new (more conservative) Congress to set budget priorities or the debt limit. Instead, they wait until after the November elections so that the departing “lame-duck” members and safe big-spenders can set the debt limit. They will likely set the limit at $21 trillion so that Big Government would be funded until after the 2016 elections; and, they will not have to answer to the taxpayers until the 2018 elections.

Also, after the elections, 5 million illegals will be given amnesty; higher Obamacare taxes, premiums, deductibles and co-pays will kick in; and 100 radical judicial nominees will be approved. Now is the time, while they are asking for your vote, to ask them how their policies have created good jobs, made health care more affordable or made us better off than we were six years ago.

Since politicians can’t decide, it is time for voters to choose new leadership.
