The House so far this year has voted to repeal Obamacare, defund Obamacare, and now to defund Planned Parenthood. A few brave members of Congress are following the will of the people as well as some governors with gumption such as Wisconsin's Scott Walker who is attempting to rein in spending in a state that has a balanced budget law. The grownups in the state and federal legislature are having to make unpopular decisions, but ones that are necessary, if we are to do as Obama himself stated last week, "live within our means." Yes, the Democrats in the Senate and White House are going to fight back in an ugly way, "If they bring a knife, we bring a gun," but our future as a financially solvent nation is seriously at risk due to reckless overspending by those very same Democrats.
