With Republicans over-spending is a discouraged misstep –
with Democrats it’s a rewarded platform…
From the Chair – Last Friday’s 1.3 trillion dollar Omnibus bill was a bit discouraging to those who believe our Republican elected officials should work extra-hard to model our Party’s platform, promises and principles. As with all things human, there are rights and wrongs and positives and negatives with this bill – and we get the complexity. Still, last night’s BCGOP Executive Committee felt the need – in a constructive fashion – to raise our concerns to our Republican elected officials. Below is a brief introductory letter followed by the Resolution that was submitted by the Chair and fine-tuned by the Executive Committee. It will be mailed to our elected DC officials tomorrow. We wanted to share it with you today…
First let us share our appreciation for your daily service; the abuse you endure; deceptions you overcome; and the pressures you bear on behalf of the blessed citizens of our country. We are grateful for what you do and especially appreciative of your efforts to do it as a Republican. We understand how hard that is and that our real opposition rides a donkey – not an elephant.
Attached, please find a Resolution drafted by the Chair and fine-tuned by the Executive Committee that references shared concerns about the content and impact of the Omnibus Bill passed on March 23rd, 2018
We understand that there are deeper complexities at work, however, we are concerned that the long-standing pattern of dramatic debt accumulation and dysfunctional budgetary process is unsustainable. We fear for our country’s future unless this pattern is broken – and we know that if and when that happens, it will only be under the “reality, reason, responsibility and right” guided hands of Republican leaders.
Regardless of how you voted on this measure, please accept this Resolution as a raised hand of concern – not a shaken fist – from a group that is allied with you toward a common mission. We are sincere when we say we are grateful for your service!
On behalf of the Executive Committee,
Carl Mumpower, Chair
