I heard the current occupant of the White House say (for at least the 3rd time) that “We need to live within our means.” This coming from a President that is on track for his third trillion dollar budget deficit. However, Obama’s definition of “living within our means” is to have people pay more in taxes. If Obama had an economic advisor with a brain, he would know that we don’t have a revenue problem. We have a spending problem. Imagine if a family member was spending more than they earned, what would you tell them to do? “Spend less” is the answer. But noooooooo, Obama wants to protect the nanny state he has created. I would be willing to pay more in taxes to get American on the right path, but I am not willing to pay more in taxes when it’s going to feed a budget monster that needs to go on a serious fiscal diet.
