|Congress must ‘pay the piper’|
Letter to the Editor:
I’d like to respond to Mary Lou Hake’s Letter to the Editor, “Supports Duffy’s Vote Against Debt Ceiling,” in the Vilas County News-Review on Oct. 30.
The accountability that Congress has is that it has passed the spending bills: now it must “pay the piper.”No bill can be passed without both the House and the Senate sending it to the president.
Maybe Mrs. Hake has forgotten this and the way the small Tea Party group of Republicans has had their way with Speaker Boehner.
They signed off and now they must pay. You don’t take a loan on a car and then say, I’m not going to pay for it.
If the House of Representatives would pass a good jobs bill, thousands, maybe millions of people would be able to go back to work, start paying off their debts, buying more products and many would not need food stamps to feed their children.
Slowly but surely the economy would start to grow out of its doldrums.
