This summer we spent a couple of weeks in the northeast looking at schools for my son, and then we spent a week at Disney. It is good to be home. Now it is time to get to work and ensure that our socialist President is a one-termer!
Have you been watching the debt ceiling fight? Obama wants to keep driving up the debt and even a few RINOs in Congress seem to want to help him. I thik it is interesting that every Democrat senator voted against increasing the debt ceiling in 2006…including Senator Obama! I think the American people are ready to seriously cut spending to get the debt under control. Obama wants higher taxes. Isn’t that a shocking revelation? A socialist wants more of your tax money to pay for unnecessary, and probably unconstitutional, government programs, like Obamacare.
That is not really news, but what I found interesting is the argument Obama is making to raise taxes. Obama said that 80% of Americans support raising taxes to deal with the debt. Ummm…I don’t think so, but let’s look at actual survey results. It turns out that Rasmussen Reports (no relation to this writer) did a survey on this question and only 34% of people support raising taxes. How did the community activist get this so wrong? I wonder if a staff member had the chart upside down?
Small business is where the jobs are in this Country. If you encourage the growth of small business more people will get to work. The outrageous unemployment rate will come down, and more people will be paying taxes instead of collecting benefits. Recently Obama said he doesn’t believe I am smart enough to understand economics, but I do understand that 80% does not equal 34%.
