The Honorable James Webb and Mark Warner,
In the interest of full disclosure, I am one of the 94% of Americans who know that the first “Stimulus Bill” – the 1984ishly labeled “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009” – did not create any new jobs. Therefore I am also part of the overwhelming majority of Americans who do not want to see another government stimulus bill, jobs bill, or any other bill. The government under this administration has sucked the very life blood out of the free market – you must stop it.
We don’t need any new commissions or studies or hearings – just stop spending money. Our government is too big, it is involved in too much, and it is killing our economy. This insanity has got to end. You have to get this President’s attention – he must be stopped before he drives us right off a cliff into international insolvency.
You can be part of the solution or you can get run over by the conservative tsunami that is coming. This isn’t that hard – You could save One Trillion dollars simply by returning the $500 Billion in returned TARP funds to the treasury and stop the ludicrous expenditure of the remaining $500 Billion in “Stimulus” money.
Finally – the only thing that will truly propel us out of these times of troubles are tax cuts. I know that and you do as well because we are both old enough to have witnessed the magic of Ronald Reagan. Lock in the Bush tax cuts and slash corporate taxes and capital gains taxes. That will help propel us to prosperity. But you need to stop the spending as well.
