Cliff Notes

I just heard an ABC News Report on the Fiscal Cliff that claimed if the President and Congress don’t act, we will go back to the Bush Era Tax Rates. What a stunning obfuscation! We are currently under the Bush Era Tax Rates which until the Democrats CRA destroyed the economy, were bringing record revenues to the Treasury.

No, ABC; after 1/1/2013, we will be going back to the Clinton Era tax rates. Too bad we won’t go back to the Clinton Era 18% of GDP spending (now 25%).

Fiscal Cliff: Let’s Make A Deal

The solution to the problems in America’s economy, finances, debt, and obligations is certainly NOT for the Federal Government to have more money and control — as if, under Barack Obama’s claim, you just hive him another $100 Billion more per year, all our problems will be solved.

Under Clinton, yes, taxes were higher, but spending was 18% of GDP instead of the current 25% of GDP. THAT h/t http://www.yourcpapartners.com/is why the budget was (closed to being) balanced… …along with the whole of the Congress and President knowing that Newt Gingrich was willing to take the Nuclear Option and shut down the Federal Government.

So, to solve our problems, a true leader, a true conservative/libertarian would introduce legislation and vote to reduce the amount of money taken out of the economy by the Federal Government and reduce the amount of our labors the Federal Government spends.

It’s simple common sense… …that is so uncommon these days.

So, why would any Republican, the party of Fiscal Responsibility, bring legislation to the floor and vote to increase taxes and spending?

There is only one answer:

They care more about their future as a legislator than they do about what’s best for America.

So, when they vote to increase your taxes and increase the money going to the government and increase spending (while calling it deficit reduction), you know that that person is not working for you and the betterment of America.  They are callously voting to ensure their own future is bright at the expense of yours.

Maybe you ought to vote ‘no’ this time when they tell you they are the true conservative/libertarian but their votes show they are not.
