Look what Patty Murray and the Democrats think is good for America – deficits that plunge us towards bankruptcy!

Whose children and grandchildren will end up paying for this catastrophe?

Unsustainable Federal Budget Deficits

Murray rose from a faculty position, fully baked in the hothouse of liberal PC groupthink, to US Senator in a few short years; swept into the office in “the year of the woman,” 1992. She means well, but her voting record is does not help America’s future.

The Democratic Party’s belief in big government solutions to every problem has created legislation that has proven counterproductive, expensive, harmful, and unsustainable for 77 years. Patty Murray has been a myopic cheerleader for such buffoonery all her adult life. During the 110th Congress, her voting record was 97.5% along party lines; a tie for the very top spot with Richard Durban of Illinois. That is not legislating – it is rubber stamping anything the party tells her to vote for.

Of course, Murray voted for Obamacare and the unintended consequences are now emerging from the closet like Willard’s rats. Contrary to the President’s solemn promise, more than half of the presently insured will lose the coverage they prefer within 3 years. Now she is tuning up to vote for Cap & Trade which will burden job creating businesses with punitive energy costs during the depths of a severe recession.

Murray is blind to the fact that as the future unfolds, far too many have claims upon the earnings of far too few. The massive entitlement programs we already have are nearly bankrupt. Her knee jerk support for yet more government control and spending can only be explained by her typical liberal preoccupation with the present time. She knows not about history, cares not about reality, and sees not the future. Her only vision is limited to her slavish devotion to yet more big government solutions she mistakenly “feels” would make things better. “Reasoning” out the costs and unintended consequences is obviously beyond her capacity.

The future of our nation depends on whether the march of the nanny state and its exploding debt can be arrested and rolled back. If not, it will destroy liberty as we have known it and condemn our children to serfdom. Murray is a major enabler of our potential future under Big Brother. Leaving her in office for 6 more years only exacerbates the possibility of the day when it will be too late to stop it. We in Washington have to elect a different Senator.

Murray went to the Senate as “The Mom in Tennis Shoes” but quickly turned them into a rubber stamp. Her hardwired base will back her forever since they pay no more attention to history and future consequences than she does. It is up to those of us who can see the long term damage of liberal policies, spending, entitlements, and social engineering to send Murray back to a college classroom. There she can damage only a few young minds at a time instead of continuing to help push America off the precipice of dependency, indebtedness and international impotence. She must be fired in November!

Here is a cute description of Murray’s propensity for earmarks, followed by links to two great candidates who should be seriously considered to replace her:

    The way you stated things over at the Reagan Wing suggests that you see Dino Rossi as an legitimate choice against the incumbent. I will be voting for Clint Didler, but if Rossi wins then I will not be seriously voting in that race.

    If I misinterpreted what you said then I do apologize. I was very incensed by the talk of “unity” I was reading over at the Reagan wing because I know unity is only promoted and practiced when the Evanite establishment “anointed” one wins the primary. You have either Akers or Didler win the primary and all talk of “Unity” from the Chris Widener types will go out the window and you will have many of these long time “Republicans” (RINOS) actively and publicly working to get Patty Murray re-elected just like Slade Gorton’s former Chief of State is doing!


    • Many people are “backing” Dino out of nothing but name recognition and that they feel it is “his turn” to win something. We went through that with Bob Dole & John McCain and how did those races work out? I have spent time with both Akers and Didier and either one is head & shoulders above Rossi. My fear is that Rossi squeaks out a primary win and the dems get their knickers in a knot and turn out in droves just to nail him one more time. Neither Akers or Didier would provoke that vindictive reaction. They have a chance to be elected as a clear choice instead of “which twin do you prefer?”



  3. Mr. Steve:

    You will notice that there are links to both the Akers and Didier websites at the end of the piece. I consider either of them a legitinmate choice against the incumbant. Apparently you do not. Any other suggestions?

    You choose?

    You are giving me an Hobson’s Choice (if you don’t know what that means that’s what Google is for).

    Here is something I pulled up from 2004.

    “Total federal outlays will rise 29 percent between fiscal years 2001 and 2005 according to the president’s fiscal year 2005 budget released in February. Real discretionary spending increases in fiscal years 2002, 2003, and 2004 are three of the five biggest annual increases in the last 40 years. Large spending increases have been the principal cause of the government’s return to massive budget deficits.

    Although defense spending has increased in response to the war on terrorism, President Bush has made little attempt to restrain nondefense spending to offset the higher Pentagon budget. Nondefense discretionary outlays will increase about 36 percent during President Bush’s first term in office. Congress has failed to contain the administration’s overspending and has added new spending of its own. Republicans have clearly forfeited any claim of being the fiscally responsible party in Washington. ”

    I’ll choose when I am given A REAL CHOICE. As long as you tell me I can have any color car as long as it is black, I “CHOOSE” not to buy the car at all!

    Oh, and since your “Short Term” memory is probably as bad as your longer term memory is… there’s this…

    U.S. President George W. Bush, saying “our entire economy is in danger,” urged Congress to approve his administration’s $700 billion bailout proposal.

    It’s not that I don’t hate Murray. I do of course. But when hate is all the GOP has left to offer me then you can count me out. Things have gone too far in country for me to ever agree that “going Left but at a slower pass” is any real answer, Heck, the last decade has proven that even the “slower pace” part in the end turns into a lie.

    So yeah, you think I will get so angry at the Black Car that I will choose the other Black Car instead. The only way to win an Hobson’s Choice is to not get involved in the choice at all. I will not be driven by Hate as you seem to want me to be!
