Note to Congress: Higher Ground
The Republicans, Independents and Democratic members who are playing political games with America's budget and therefore the U.S. citizens tax dollars, I would encourage you to use your legislative skills in the current and future budget negotiations and understand that a number of families are in need of an economic boost and confidence in our U.S. and international monetary system. It is with a clear focus that I woke up this morning, spirit filled while hearing and feeling that the problems of our nation and societal issues we have yet to solve is of an urgent matter or we will repeat historical mistakes. Congress has the ability to negotiate a just, fair and equitable budget for all. Anything less is unacceptable to the voters of the United States of America. Our financial state of affairs falls in the camp of the previous and present administrations and I am sure that all parties involved are looking at what legacy they will build and leave to the American public and world for years to come. Let's leave the hidden agendas and control tactics that undermine each other’s thoughts, ideas and plans for the future off the table and put on the kitchen table ideas, agendas and plans that provide positive substance to sustain families in their everyday struggle to survive.
On this day as the NASA organization sends the last shuttle to space and recognizing the human strength, innovation, intelligence and spirit that put men and women on the moon and the International Space Station, surely budget settlements is a goal we can reach and put ourselves and the economy on higher ground.
Let Your Innervoice Rise-
