Tuesday, November 2, 2010 is a VERY important day for all Americans. Election day. We get to decide who will represent our interests in Congress and in our state capitols. Voting and taxes are how we as Americans pay our "rent" for citizenship of our great nation.
As frustrated by our national politics as I am, I will still VOTE. But I don't have amnesia like most other Americans. I still remember what political party was responsible for spending away the $1.7 Trillion dollar budget surplus President Clinton left. I remember which political party had control of both houses of Congress and the White House, who kept spending money we didn't have for unrealistic tax cuts and two wars. Yes folks, I'm talking about the Republican party!
The Republican party wants to cut taxes and spending and repeal "Obamacare". If cutting spending and lowering taxes were that easy, then why hasn't it been done? You don't cut your revenue sources when you have a huge budget deficit! Repeal the new health care law? What would you replace it with? Oh that right, nothing. The status quo is working so well for us right now.
Ok, I'll step off my soap box now. VOTE on TUESDAY!!
