Most important, I am concerned with the very notion of a “debt commission.” Members of Congress have been sent to Washington by the American people and have a fiduciary duty to them. Congress has the power of the purse—in good times and bad. We have been hired by the American people to fulfill our duties enumerated in the Constitution. If lawmakers do not feel up to the task, then they should resign—not defer their constitutional duties to other people.
The American people are tired of the Democrats’ arrogant big spending. They are tired of Democrat ignorance, and they are tired of their incompetent solutions. The American people don’t want any more commissions; they just want Congress to do its job so that more Americans can find one.
