Obama wants to “run the Republicans out of town”; our Country may be in big trouble if we let the socialists (formerly known as Democrats) keep on giving to those who do not produce. Look at Greece, Italy, Spain and most of the EU; your answer lies there.
The socialists were in charge of the Congress and Senate from 2006 until 2010, when sober heads woke up to the truth; and the Tea Party movement started. The socialists mandated that banks and lending institutions make loans to those who did not qualify, and when the loans could not be paid back catastrophe ensued. All under the socialist Democrats tenure.
I look back and remember the statements I made to my wife and friends, on multiple occasions in 2007; we make pretty good money and cannot afford what these people have purchased, new cars, home, boat and etc. Now in retrospect those neighbors have no home, no boat and a beat up car; and the lenders took it on the chin. Socialist, Democrat regulations at its finest.
The Republicans and Tea Party movement may have saved our country, but the socialists still want to create more waste in the form of a second stimulus; better known as the Obama jobs bill. We all know how well the first one worked.
If the socialist Democrats want to create jobs, eliminate most of the regulations you imposed on those creating jobs. Quit taxing us out of existence. NOTE: only 51 percent of Americans pay any income tax; the rest get a free ride.
