The honorable Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senate Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell represent the mind set of long seated Republicans and Democrats. Picture John and Mitch relaxed in a bath tub with a small fire keeping the water at hot tub temperature. The fire represents spending exceeding revenue. Obama and the Democrats used the recession to added a lot of fuel to the fire. John, Mitch, and the representatives and senators that have been in Washington DC for years are comfortable in the hot tub. They will not change their actions as the water is heated to a boil. The leadership keep telling the new representatives to get into the relaxing hot tub and that the water is still comfortable. In reality they may be able to stand the hot water, however; stay in it and the heat will dull feelings. Their first responds is to jump out. Its our job to remind them to get out and stop putting fuel on the fire. Ask them if removing a few twigs will reduce the heat from the large chunks of wood, spending from the fourth branch of government added by Obama, Boiling Frog Syndrome?
