No One Wants to Default... But the WH 'Moved the Goalposts'



We are in a spending crisis like none other in our history. The WH wants to keep the debt high and the only way it can do that is to stop the Republicans in Congress. We must get a handle on our debt and start paying it down now. If we raise taxes on businesses that are creating wealth in this country we will see the economy stay in recession or go into a depression.
The first thing we need to do is cut the massive spending Obama and the Democrats have done over the past years. We can't afford to keep going on the road the Democrats have put us on. We have to make cuts that will hurt. But the fact is we are already in economic pain and adding to our debt by another $2 trillion will only make the inevitable worse. We can't keep putting off our massive debt to the next generation. It is our debt. Both Republicans and Democrats have put us in this debt. But it is only the Republicans that are willing to do what it takes to pay off our debt without hurting the economy at the same time. Once we get our economy back on track with cuts and balancing we can debate raising taxes again. But to raise taxes now will only hurt our economy and the middle class. Almost everyone agrees with that except the class warfare liberals. They want to keep putting the pressure of our debt and taxes on those 50% of Americans that are paying federal taxes and the private sector. If we don't back off the economic attacks on our private sector they will up and leave or fold all together.
Obama and the Democratic Party have gotten everything they wanted over the last two years. Take a look at where it has taken us. It has made things much worse as we are still seeing unemployment go through the roof. They have had their chance to do what they wanted and they took it. The results are as clear as a bell and it is time to do something different for a change.
