The Trouble with Tiberi (congressman Pat Tiberi)

According to the latest email dispatch from congressman Pat Tiberi (R-OH), the Democrats are the reason we have irresponsible spending, accounting gimmicks, and no reform. And this is from Tiberi?!? For years, the man feasted at the public trough, spending like there was no tomorrow. He is what is wrong in Washington. Yet, he now wants his constituents to believe that he and the rest of the Republicans (Ron Paul excepted) are fiscally conservative. Please!

"This country is sick of-out-control spending ... " Sure, but we were sick of it when Tiberi was the spender.

Hey, Pat.


You had your chance. You and your cohorts spent my children's future years ago, so don't give me the line that you are a fiscal conservative.

Oh, and, don't lie to me with statements such as, "We should use taxpayers’ dollars responsibly while paving a path to a secure financial future. Just like families who operate on a budget, the federal government must set spending priorities, not 'charge it' and plan on increasing taxes in the future to pay for runaway spending today.”

It's time that you truly served your district by returning home. Let someone who has the integrity to vote for less government serve in your place.
There really is only a dime's worth of difference between the parties, and it's my dime either way.



DEMOCRATS’ BUDGET SYMBOLIZES WHAT’S WRONG WITH WASHINGTON
FY09 Budget Includes Irresponsible Spending, Accounting Gimmicks, No Reform

U.S. Congressman Pat Tiberi (R-OH) issued the following statement about the Democrats’ fiscal year 2009 Budget Resolution after it passed the House Thursday by a vote of 214-210:

“The Democrats’ Budget symbolizes exactly what’s wrong with Washington. Rather than set priorities, this budget spends irresponsibly, puts us on the road to the largest tax increase in American history and masks it all with accounting gimmicks. I don’t think this is the change Americans want to see. It’s not the direction Ohioans want for their future.

“This country got sick of out-of-control spending; Republicans heard that loud and clear in 2006. Americans don’t want to return to a tax-and-spend policy either. We should use taxpayers’ dollars responsibly while paving a path to a secure financial future. Just like families who operate on a budget, the federal government must set spending priorities, not 'charge it' and plan on increasing taxes in the future to pay for runaway spending today.”

Note: Congressman Tiberi opposed the Democratic Leaderships’ Budget and joined his Republican colleagues and 14 Democrats to vote against the resolution.
