John Dingell: "American People Are Afraid, Frustrated & Don't Know Who They're Afraid Of" (Video)
Rep. John Dingell (D-MI), the longest serving member in the history of the House of Representatives, was on with Jon Stewart this week. The veteran democrat brought the gavel he used when he presided over Medicare talks in the US House back in the 1960’s.
Dingell told Jon Stewart that,
“People are afraid, frustrated, and don’t know who they’re mad at.”
Oh really?… Is that so?
Of course, what Dingell told Stewart is the typical leftist response to America. Democrats think they know what’s best for the rest of the little people and working Americans. Their solution always involves bigger government, less freedom, less responsibility, and more spending. And, it doesn’t matter how they achieve their goal or if it is even legal, just as long as they are able to get their way.
Let Freedom Ring has more:
With all due respect to Rep. Dingell, that’s utter nonsense. The American people know exactly who they’re upset with and why they’re upset. Mostly, they’re upset that the Democrats aren’t listening to us. They’re upset that Democrats are doing their best to control every facet of our lives, whether it’s taking over the health care industry, financial institutions, student loans, car manufacturers and the energy industry.
It’s time that Rep. Dingell quit with the spin and stop denying the fact that this is the most arrogant, most secretive Congress in history. It’s so secretive that they’ve written a health care law that they intended to impose on everyone except themselves, only to find out that they didn’t exempt themselves from it.
This provision likely would’ve been stripped from the bill if the bill hadn’t been written by Democrats in Harry Reid’s office.
It’s not hard to understand why public faith in government is at rock bottom: People lose trust when the officials either ignore the public will, or, worse, do the opposite of what they promised voters they would do. President Obama, for example, promised a ‘net spending cut’ during the 2008 presidential campaign. He has instead delivered the biggest explosion in federal spending in American history
