I agree with Nancy, the folks in DC seem to have no problem spending our money. I don’t know what gave anyone the impression that they did. Well, other than the fact that they’re running out of our money and they need raise taxes in order to ease their craving;
“We have to recognize that, which cuts really help us and which cuts hurt our future? And cuts in education, scientific research and the rest are harmful, and they are what are affected by the sequestration,” she said on “Fox News Sunday.” “So, it is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem. We have a budget deficit problem that we have to address.”
See, that’s what a “budget deficit problem” means – they’re going to raise our taxes, because you know, after Jimmy Carter created the Education Department, our children are fricken geniuses, so no cuts there – and since he created the Energy Department, we’ve weaned ourselves off of foreign oil and gas is so much cheaper now than it was then, so where can we cut there? So the only thing we can do is raise taxes because, aside from the Defense Department, there’s really nothing else we can do balance the budget. No. Really.
And John McCain fully supports raising taxes. See? That’s why I didn’t want to raise taxes on the rich – it’s like chum in the water for Congress.
