Fiscal cliff is all about one man welding power

Editor, Manteca Bulletin,

Watching the waste of time in Washington on the news about this debt ceiling and fiscal cliff is just wearing me out. My liberal coffee shop friends think the Republicans are the problem. This vote is not about the cliff, the debt or anything to do solving our money problems. This vote is about one thing - power. The guy in the White House has attached to the bill the power of the President to borrow any amount of money from anyone he wants to for any reason, without having to go to Congress for a vote.

This puts unlimited power in the hands of one person to go unchecked. This is not about saving the country from collapse. I say let the chips fall. We as Americans are very creative in ways not even heard of yet. We will survive. I have faith in our will. This vote has nothing to do with race, jobs, women’s rights, entitlements, nothing because this so-called leader does not care about anything other than himself.

But the big question to me is what is so important about the year 2014? What in the health care bill is so important about 2014? No one has read it. I smell a great big rotting rat. In 2014 is another mid-term election. The next mid-term election will be even worse. It will be the end of our two party system. I really hope I am wrong, but I am right. In our life time, we will have seen the last vote for President of the United States.
