Bipartisan Blunder

money1Despite promises to only increase taxes on the top 1 percent, our Congress averted the “fiscal cliff” in a bipartisan way—by  increasing payroll taxes on every working family!

The U.S. Senate reportedly had only 3 minutes to read the 154-page bill before voting on it. That is not enough time to catch the gratuitous gifts to certain senator’s supporters:

Their legislation included money for America’s asparagus farmers, as well as help for the television and motion picture industry, along with Puerto Rican rum distillers . Additionally, the producers and purchasers of 2- and 3-wheel electric vehicles got help. Finally, there is money for NASCAR and for something having to do with diesel fuel.

All of this Congressional graft for a nation that is trying to recover from a severe recession!

This bipartisan blunder may actually drive many families to have to trust God—and not government—for their “daily bread.”
