Since Democrats took over Congress in 2007, the annual federal budget deficit has quadrupled. Democrats continue to talk about fiscal austerity, but if left to them, these gargantuan deficits would continue for years to come. In February 2010, Barack Obama made a farce of creating a bipartisan debt commission and tasking it to make recommendations for reining in federal spending. The commission did so in December ... and he promptly ignored them, introducing a 2012 budget that included none of its recommendations and continues to drive spending through the roof.
Given his recent "campaign speeches" it is fully evident that Obama is not interested in lowering the deficit, the national debt by any spending cuts. His only intent is to continue on the road of income redistribution.
Obama proposed raising taxes by $1 trillion on the top two brackets over the next 12 years -- and not just directly raising rates, but eliminating deductions, too. "I believe that most wealthy Americans would agree with me," he said. "They want to give back to the country that's done so much for them. Washington just hasn't asked them to." As far as we know, Uncle Sam is always willing to take an extra check if one's conscience is so burdened.
This folks is income redistribution at it's
My fellow Patriots and Conservatives, The Beat(ing) Goes On! Have you notified you representative that "enough is enough" and let them know that nothing less than the total package proposed by the Conservatives recently elected will do. Remind then if they can't get the job done then they can and willll be replaced in 2012.
