We must temper the radical notions of representatives such as Jerry Lewis with common sense approaches to the problems that affect us all. Of course we needed a massive stimulus package. Jerry Lewis lead the fight against it. But tax cuts alone don't create jobs. We need a mix of tax cuts, jobs programs, small business help, and infra structure improvements to boost this economy. We need to follow this up with much tighter controls of the banking and mortgage industries. We must make sure that loans are available to all of us, the common, regular, ordinary people who make this economy work. We must make public education available and efficient for all of us. These are the proposals Lewis fought against.
We the people must take back this government from people like Jerry Lewis who stubbornly and stingily hold on to the reigns of power so they can dish out favors for chosen projects that make political hay, but do not help the real problems, that do not go beyond politics as usual, that do not go out into the main street and affect the lives of all of us true Americans who so deserve government attention.
I believe that by listening to the problems of the mainstream, average taxpayer we can get through this crisis. We can once again make America the strong leading nation that we know it is. It is time for Mr. No (Representative Lewis) to sit in his palatial home, talk to his influential money men and leave the running of this great country to the people.
