New Jersey Governor Chris Christie must be wondering what is wrong with his fellow Republican Congressional Representatives as they stall Sandy Storm reparation and re-building funds for his irate and angered constituents who have waited nearly two months for direly needed relief aid.
The current chain of events show how little influence the House Speaker Boehner has over his Republican Congress. The Republicans are in a state of complete disarray as they bicker, back stab, and continue their in-fighting with each other over serious Congressional Funding issues.
A Great Republican President once stated that no house divided can long stand. And so Abraham Lincoln’s great wisdom goes unheeded as Congress becomes a quagmire of inaction, lacking in civility and charity.
Republican Conservative John W. Dean is deeply vexed by a party which has become “Conservatives Without a Conscience”. The recent $9 Billion stop-gap bill to provide badly needed relief to Sandy Storm victims falls far short of the $60 Billion required for rebuilding and subsidizing a recovery for storm victims, who are suffering physically, mentally, and the indignity of not being valued American citizens.
Today, Conservative Fundamentalist Republicans scorn President Ronald Reagan and both father and son George H.W. Bush’s and George W. Bush’s fiscal spending policies, while resolutely quiet about President Bill Clinton‘s fiscal spending policies. I wonder how these “fiscally responsible Republicans” would have felt about President Eisenhower‘s funding of the National Interstate Highway System which has paid for itself a hundred times over for itself. Construction was authorized by the Federal Aid Highway Act of 1956, and the original portion was completed 35 years later. The cost of construction has been estimated at $425 billion (in 2006 dollars).
I doubt any of these “Neo-Fiscal-Fascist Republicans” realize how close they are to being “Fascist Capitalists” like those who supported Francisco Franco y Bahamonde, Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.
I can only wonder what the “Neo-Fiscal-Fascist Republicans” “final solution” will be for the Sandy Storm Victims. Right now they are $51 Billion shy of the beginning of a real solution.
What would Founding Father, President Thomas Jefferson have done with these “Neo-Fiscal-Fascist Republicans”? He probably would have put them under an Executive Order of Arrest for deliberately endangering American lives.
President Obama’s only alternative may be to declare a “State of National Emergency” in New York, Rhode Island, and Connecticut and force Congress to allocate the required relief funds or suffer Executive Order’s to have the Department of Justice to bring suit to the Supreme Court accusing Congress for endangering our National Security! President John Quincy Adams would not have hesitated to take said action under such circumstances.
