Dear Spike,

This week two major bills have been under consideration in the halls of Congress. The first is what many are calling the Omnibus Spending Bill. This bill, which was introduced by Senate Democrats earlier this week is 1,924 pages long and spends $1.1 trillion in taxpayer money (an average of about $575 million per page). This bill is wasteful and reckless and I strongly oppose it. Fortunately, Republicans in the Senate successfully stopped this bill. The Senate Democrats still need to pass a bill to prevent a government shutdown, but it should be one that reins in reckless government spending, not one that continues the excessive spending we have seen over the last few years.

The second major bill under consideration extends the 2001/2003 tax cuts which were set to expire in January. These tax increases would hit every tax bracket, and without action by December 31st , an average middle-income family would face a $1,540 tax increase and many would have seen an average increase of $1,700 in dividends and and capital gains taxes.

Late Thursday night, the House of Representatives passed the bill to prevent this massive tax increase. I voted for the bill, but my vote is not a seal of approval that this bill will fix the economy. This bill will merely prevent the evil of a massive tax increase.

The Democrats have through a series of poor policy decisions created economic conditions that are destructive to small businesses and job creation. These include: excessive taxes, unnecessary red tape, market uncertainty, restricted access to liquidity and massive federal spending. Passage of this bill will not fix the problems but will only create additional uncertainty by postponing important decisions on tax policy.

Until we implement policy changes favorable to employers, our economy will continue to struggle and unemployment will remain high. Despite these concerns, I am convinced that Congress has an immediate and pressing obligation to prevent a multi-trillion dollar tax increase that would further kill jobs, threaten another grave economic downturn and place huge tax burdens on all Americans. The bill does not improve our current economic situation but does postpone the evil of a massive tax hike during a recession.

I hope that the Democrats’ lame duck session of Congress will end soon, and I look forward to the beginning of the new Congress in January. The House of Representatives must once again truly be the “People’s House.” As always, please continue to share your thoughts and comments with me via email or Facebook or watch my latest comments on YouTube. It remains an honor to represent you.

This one will nauseate you. I couldn’t figure out whether I was infuriated at these tools, or just ashamed for them, their performance was so revoltingly bad. Either way, my day was just ruined. Here student activistas of the Left engage in a flash mob at a grocery store that sells Israeli products. It’s called the Philly BDS (boycott, divest, sanction). They are trying to turn Israel into a pariah state, and they are succeeding. Here’s how you can respond to this nonsense– buy Israeli from time to time.

Joe Kozdra, “We’ve leaned too far to the left.”

Dear Spike,

Having been unemployed for well over a year, I’ve had some time on my hands. I have devoted some of it to song-writing.

For those who are opposed to the leftist politics of the Obama administration, I have composed a tasteful and entertaining musical satire with a lively rhythm and clever lyrics. Please take a few minutes to listen, and then share it freely with like-minded people.

We’ve leaned too far to the left.


Joe Kozdra

Dear Joe, Thanks for the E-mail, sorry to hear that your unemployed (I was too) I hope things get better for you soon.
Here’s your Song…

Akin Alert: Lame Duck Agenda

Posted in My E-mail, politics with tags , , , , , on December 8, 2010 by spikestl

Dear Spike,

The House of Representatives has been in session since Thanksgiving, but aside from a few post office naming resolutions, it hasn’t been doing much of the people’s business.

But over the last few days, Republican leaders have been in close negotiations with the White House over the 2001-2003 tax cuts that are set to expire at the end of this month. This morning, they announced a bipartisan agreement to extend the current tax cuts for all earners for two years and extend the middle class Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) for some 21 million households. The compromise tax cut package also includes a 13 month extension of unemployment benefits and limits the estate tax to thirty-five percent for estates worth more than $5 million.

The main question that remains is whether Speaker Pelosi and the Democrat controlled House will allow this bipartisan compromise package to be voted on in the House. Despite President Obama’s willingness to sit down and work with Republican leadership on this plan, the Speaker has not yet signaled a similar bipartisan commitment.

I don’t like everything about this package. And I will not compromise in ways that ultimately hurts the people of Missouri. But, on balance, I think this is a package that is necessary for the economy. We cannot pile an enormous tax increase onto a weak economy and expect economic growth.

As we enter the Christmas holiday season, 9.8% of Americans and 9.4% of Missourians are unemployed. Getting Americans back to work should be our top priority as lawmakers – but we cannot do that without understanding some basic economic realities. The top 10% of income earners pay 70% of income taxes, while the bottom 40% of wage earners pay nothing. Many of the top earners in our country are also employers. We simply cannot expect job growth when we tax away the capital business owners need to expand their businesses and hire new employees.

While we don’t know exactly when or if the tax cut package will come up for consideration, I have been told that the current House leadership expects to consider a continuing resolution for funding the government. It is also possible that they will hold a vote on the controversial DREAM Act, legislation which would permit illegal immigrants to receive in-state tuition at public colleges and universities.

Right now, we have no word of when the 111th Congress will adjourn. I will keep you informed and, as always, continue to welcome your comments and thoughts on the issues of the day. You can always share your thoughts via email or Facebook and review my recent floor comments on YouTube.
