Hi, this is Tricia.
It is not polite to use obscenities and name calling in a political discourse. Your use of these belittles any argument you might make.
I would point out that every time that anyone questions Obama's tax policy, he simply changes it. See the article in yesterday's Wall Street Journal for the history. I would further point out that "tax cuts" and welfare, or the receipt of money from the government that you never paid in are not the same thing. So, if Obama promises to give you $4,000 or $5,000 per year of someone else's money because you are in college, whether or not you ever paid that money in, amounts to theft at a government level. There is no promise of a free college education, a free house, or free health care in this country. Those are Socialist beliefs. What this country promises is the opportunity for each citizen to work, to support himself, and to have unlimited opportunity, as did Barack.
Barack's proposals for cramdown bankruptcy legislation amounts to the abrogation of contract law in this country and would result in higher interest rates or a further drying up of credit to the populace that actually pays their bills on time and does not look for handouts.
There is no way that Barack can give tax "cuts" to 95% of the population when only something like 55% even pays taxes. What he would give would be a redistribution of money that they did not pay in. A tax cut is not the same as a government handout.
And, yes, is it so unfair to expect that I be allowed to keep what I earn, and be allowed to choose my own charities rather than having Barack take my money against my will and provide to whomever he chooses? I have helped my brothers, my Chilean family, and others, but the more the government takes from me, the less I am able to do that. What is fair about taking the money I earn? How is that an incentive for anyone to work and advance if you are punished when you do so? The incentive that Barack's policies provide is one of moral hazards. Building in a flood zone? Don't want to buy flood insurance? Don't worry, government will pay. Want to have babies outside of marriage and not support them? Don't worry. Government will pay. Want to not buy health insurance so you can buy a Porsche? Don't worry. Government will pay. Want to commit fraud on a loan application and state an income substantially higher than what you earn in order to buy a house that you could never ever ever afford? Go ahead. Don't worry. Government will pay.
The problem is that there is no "government." There is no free lunch. There is no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. All there is is irresponsibility, and the warped belief that taking from someone else just because you want to is OK. It is morally reprehensible.
Finally, right now Obama may say those earning $250,000 or more (per couple - not individual - and Biden said $150,000), but there is absolutely nothing to stop him from changing his definition of "middle class" just as he has been changing his proposed tax policy. He can come for you next, and, yes, I am equating him to the Nazis. And I do believe that experience matters in the presidency. Obama may have enough experience to work with with ACORN on the get out the vote initiative, but that does not make him ready to be president.
Nice chatting with you, and the gang. Have a lovely evening.
Any help with this would be great.
