Look, it’s not taxes!

December 10, 2010

I have been getting a kick out of watching the politicians, bureaucrats, and the would be media gurus go on and on about raising taxes and lowering taxes. The problem with the United States Government is quite simply that they are spending too much money. Do you hear me? They are spending too much money.

They have got to cut expenses. Never mind the taxes, cut expenses. That’s the hard choice that hardly any of our leaders or experts, whatever that means, are willing to announce. They have to cut out some of the government entitlements or everyone else is going to get hurt. There is no free lunch!

What do you think?

Mr.Gibb, What Dem or Rep has the guts to say NO to all the liberal entitlements. Only the teabaggers seen to have the courage to say the word NO to the goverment freeloaders,

Liberal entitlements...what did people do before government entitlements? I don't mean that to be sarcastic. Lyndon Johnson expanded the welfare system, but how do we reduce it? Where do we draw the line?

We MUST reduce the entitlements, but how? Years ago in my sociology class at HFCC, the professor told us that Corporate Welfare - money given to corporations by the Govt in different ways - was many times the money given to individuals in what we commonly call welfare. Is that still true? If so, do we cure our budget problem by cutting the smaller money flow?

You know what LOCAL GUY, your right! The problem is that those jerk faces in Washington want to strip hard working Americans of our entitlements that WE PAID FOR right along side the welfare abusers and immigrants who have absolutely NO right to them. We work and contribute our whole lives, so that illegal immigrants and lifelong welfare recipients can live off of us.

No one in Washington can differentiate between people who paid for the benefits we receive like Medicare, Social Security, Disability and some creep who climbed a fence to have their kids here or some crack head that keeps cranking out one crack addicted child after another to collect welfare..

It all makes me sick!

First of all, it's just an extension of the CURRENT tax rates that have been in effect for the past 7 years. There are NO TAX CUTS-ONLY A TAX INCREASE if this bill is not passed! The inside-the-beltway bureaucrats are and have been living in Fantasyland with OUR MONEY. Why don't they have to do as real Americans and live with a balanced budget, as well as make laws that apply to THEM as well as the rest of us...Can John Dingle spell Obamacare, and John, stop attempting to "CONTROL THE PEOPLE". (Actual quote from the Frank Beckman show.) Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall! I guess November wasn't enough of a lesson!!!

The comments from others are all "on the money" but when you have people in Congress who are being deliberately tone deaf and in total denial as to the November ballot outcome you get Sen Reid saying "we must finish the peoples work by any means possible" (before the new hordes of
Republicans are sworn in). It is the Reid's, Pelosi's, Water's, Dingel's, Levin's, Shumer's, not to mention the Rhino's(Dem's hiding out as
Republicans who are to blame along with the Barney Franks, and Dodd's who masterminded the
housing debacle that got us all in trouble-everyone with a brain in their heads needs to got after all of these folks everyday--until there is a true and sustained ground swell of opposition from the people this non-sense will go on and on and on!

I understand there is a calculation that 'Obamacare' is going to bankrupt the country. I don't know about that, but I know this...I am struggling to keep my family 'covered' by health insurance. I am paying $800 per month for blue cross coverage, and it doesn't cover anything. That is, until I pay $2,500 per person deductible. I have been paying doctor bills all year. Does another approach sound good to me? Yes. If my $800 even provided what used to be 'normal' coverage, it would be a start. Oh, and the good news? Blue Cross has already alerted me that being forced to cover pre-existing conditions and extending children's coverage to 26 will make my premiums rise in January. Oh, boy...

It costs a lot of money to maintain an empire. How about cutting a few (billion) from the military budget?? The boogey man will not get you!!
There would be a LITTLE more to go around if the top 1% of the wealth horders weren't so afraid and would share some of that 90% of the wealth that they control. What else do they want????....EVERYTHING!!!
Obama, Shobama! He's a puppet and so are you if you think he has the power to be responsible!!!
Don't be so gullible!
