Read their lips, no new taxes — on the rich;
the rest of you, you’re on your own
*** begin quote ***
The Republican plan for addressing the long-term deficit can be summed up this way: Leave the rich alone and pass along the costs to the rest of us.
*** end quote ***
I believe what they are saying is: “No new taxes”. I’d prefer them to say: “No taxes”, but that will never happen as long as they have the guns.
Taxes are an immoral theft.
But over and above that, raising taxes in a down economy is economic suicide.
They will have to cut spending. Before they “drive” the economy into total collapse.
Everyone is looking at the uncertainty ahead — how much will an employee cost me? — what are the economic prospects ahead? — what are these idiots in DC doing? — and waiting for the storm to pass.
I personally like Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 plan. At least it’s easy to understand. I doubt we can ever pass it. Since the politicians and bureaucrats will be fighting for pennies. That’s not a bad thing. Just never going to happen.
Everyone is ALWAYS on their own. We need more “rowers” and fewer “free riders”.
