We are in big trouble as a country, if the American public can identify that the government has a spending and not a revenue problem before Barack Obama and his crowd does. In an effort to raise taxes to address the debt crisis, Washington is using, once again, taxing the “millionaires and billionaires” to game the system. It comes down to a party’s philosophy of wanting more of your money. No wonder Mitch McConnell and the Republican Party is willing to walk away.
“It’s become increasing clear that he’s trying to entice us into doing one of two things: either sign onto a bad deal that raises taxes, or go into default and allow us to have co-ownership of the economy” Mitch McConnell speaking of his meeting with Obama over the debt limit crisis.
We started this dialogue several years ago with the video of the then candidate Barack Obama telling Joe the Plumber the government must “spread the wealth”. What seemed a startling comment from a novice politician, has become a cornerstone of the Obama administration. From Max Baucus’ statement of announcing the Healthcare bill was not about healthcare at all, but instead “spreading the wealth,” the Democratic party has shown that it will continue to help shoulder the White house in this endeavor.
I don’t know about you, but I feel life has become a struggle with this administration. With the lack of clear leadership, we face a president who feels more comfortable using fear and threats with a country who wants more. With Standard and Poor’s and Moody’s Investors Service warning the U.S. may lose it’s AAA credit rating unless a compromise is reached on the debt ceiling, we see an administration unwilling to comprise the future of it’s citizens over tax revenue. One questions why we live in a democracy where the government has become the enemy?
Rasmussen recently did a poll finding out that American’s really wanted to rule themselves. Right now this sounds pretty good.
