COVINGTON, Ind. —
Let’s face it, with President Obama and Sen. Harry Reid, overspending is the only way they intend to go. They’re not concerned about you the taxpayers or anything that makes sense.
All economists agree we will see this country collapse in the very near future. And others all agree, and those who have a brain, you don’t spend more than you take in, period.
The Democratic philosophy is to tax more, borrow more and spend more. This program is not going to work. One other thing is surely clear.
The Democratic Party wants the fiscal cliff to fail and then everybody gets hit with more taxes and they get more to spend.
Their easy out, as usual, blame the Republicans, you know, the party that wants to reduce the overspending and the national debt.
President Obama never intended to address the debt problem in his first term, and it’s evident now it won’t happen in his second.
Go ahead, President Obama, tax us all and tax the rich and small business owners. I wouldn’t blame them if they all went to China. When they’re all gone, less money coming in, all the government giveaway programs won’t have the funds anymore.
Mr. President, you’ve done a lot of talk, but you still haven’t learned to walk.
