I just got finished listening to the President comment on the country's credit downgrade. What I heard is we've cut all we can cut so we need more money. What a crock! He actually not only stood there and said we need more money but then he started talking about spending even more money. Can we pass a constitutional amendment that says that all presidential candidate, of either party, have to pass a drug test, phsycological test and have a least some minimum level on intelligence?
I don't care on the surface about the tax increases he wants on the rich. The fact is the rich will perhaps have to pay their CPAs and lawyers a few more dollars but they won't pay much, if anymore in taxes. The lets soak it to the rich and make them pay has been in the Dems playbook since at least the 16th amendment if not long before then. The people that will be hurt by increasing taxes in the way that the president has proposed over and over again are the small businesses of the country who are already in deep trouble. Unless small business is allowed to prosper there will be no recovery! And if you really think that the numb skulls in Washington will actually pass an increase in taxes that they have to pay then you may need to do some looking deep inside because you are way off base.
The answer is apparently too simple for the super intelligent that currently run our country to understand but here it is for you.
1 - Cut spending. There's a lot out there to cut. Need a list? I'm sure there are a lot of us that would be happy to help you in that regard.
2 - Get out of small businesses way so they can and will put people to work. If unemployment was under 6% again you would have more income than you think you can get by raising taxes.
