Please, can we stop accepting second best? The current administration continues to run on a platform of, “It would have been worse if we didn’t”:
-hike your taxes
-spend 1 trillion in tax payer funded ‘stimulus’ money
-pass new financial market regulations.
Well, it is worse, but it doesn’t have to be. We have given those ideas a shot and they have produced the worst economic recovery in post-WWII American history, a devastated healthcare system, 6.6 trillion in new debt, and big banks have turned into bigger banks.
How about we try some tested solutions such as broad-based, across the board, tax-relief? Healthcare reform that eliminates the Obamacare bureaucracy and puts you in charge? And budget constraints that control real spending, not simply the rate of growth?
I refuse to run on, “It could have been worse” and will only run on “Here’s why tomorrow will be better.”
