Congress is pushing us to the brink of socialism

The current congress is a total disaster. It is interesting to note that many of the congressional Senate and White House aides have not paid their taxes. U.S. Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y., beats the government he represents for seven years and is allowed to pay the back tax with no penalties or interest. You try doing something like that and I shudder to think what would happen to you. I have written my representatives about this and so far all I have heard is silence.

With the November elections approaching I urge all of you to consider what your representative has voted for. A health care bill that obviously no one wants. A stimulus package that has not done a thing except raise the deficit. Our borders left open so illegal immigrants can flood into the country and cost billions of tax dollars. Last but not least the pandering to all of the labor unions who supported Obama in the last election.

It is time to wake up, my friends, and see how are current representatives are pushing us toward a socialist country where the government will control everything.
