A good question for everyone: 1) How much of your hard earned money is fair for the Government to take from you? 10%, 20%, 35%, 50%, 80%? Who makes that decision? How should it get redistributed? Who should it go to? Illegal immigrants? High school dropouts? 2) Do you trust the Government to use your hard earned money wisely? Anyone remember the Government paid $400 for a hammer and $1000 dollar for a toilet seat? Do you spend your own money that way? Other examples: - The federal government cannot account for $24.5 billion spent in 2003. - The federal government spends $23 billion annually on special interest pork projects such as grants to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, or funds to combat teenage “goth” culture in Blue Springs, Missouri. - Over one recent 18-month period, Air Force and Navy personnel used government-funded credit cards to charge at least $102,400 for admission to entertainment events, $48,250 for gambling, $69,300 for cruises, and $73,950 for exotic dance clubs and prostitutes. - The Defense Department wasted $100 million on unused flight tickets, and never bothered to collect refunds even though the tickets were reimbursable. -The Conservation Reserve program pays farmers $2 billion annually to not farm their land. http://www.heritage.org/Research/Budget/wm839-list.cfm Why would I trust Obama to increase my taxes and give everyone more entitlements like universal healthcare, childcare, etc when the Government can't even account for where it spends my money and is exponentially wasteful year after year? Insanity !!!! I think I'm the BEST person to manage my own healthcare expenses, retirement benefits, etc. I don't need the Government to tell me what to do with my life. Obama can promise to give the people massive new entitlements and welfare programs, but does anybody really think he can pay for them?
