35% is too much for the government. As Herman Cain says, "If 10% is good enough for God, than 9% should be perfectly acceptable for the government."
How can Obama want the federal government to spend over $3.7 TRILLION dollars this year when our total revenue is is only $2.6 trillion? I don't understand. Where does all that money go? That is $11,874 per person. PER PERSON. Every man, woman, and child in this country.
We have a $15.37 trillion dollar national debt that was supposed to be CUT IN HALF by the end of Obama's first term. Instead, Obama has added nearly $5 trillion to the debt. If we divided the debt up among all Americans, we each would have to pay OVER $49,000. This year, we will pay $242 BILLION in interest on this enormous debt. The richest man in the US, Bill Gates, is only worth $56 billion. Yes, that is a lot of money, but now when our interest payments are more than four times greater than the net worth of our richest citizen.
Now Obama is trying to cheat his way into a second term by waging class warfare. The top 1% pays over 22% of the taxes! You might say, "Well Warren Buffet pays less taxes than his secretary." Warren Buffet pays capital gains taxes, which are taxes off of investments. Any American who makes money off investments only pays 15%. It encourages people to take risks. Buffet's secretary makes "earned income," therefore she pays a regular tax rate. Interesting enough, Buffet's secretary must make between $200,000-$500,000 in order to be obligated to pay a 34% tax rate.
Now for ObamaCare. Obama is FORCING people to buy health insurance. It is someones choice whether or not to buy something. You may say, "You have to buy car insurance." NO, YOU DO NOT. You can chose not to drive, right? Can you chose not to live? Unfortunately, yes, but I can assure you that many people will not make that choice. Even worse, until Obama flip-flopped his view, churches had to pay for and almost encourage what they believed was a sin.
Speaking of flip-flops, Obama has many. Like keeping GITMO open, or canceling our space program after promising to make it a top priority. Also, he called Mubarak a "stalwart ally," then later telling the Egyptian ruler that he must go.
Obama once said that as long as Iran was a threat, he would continue Bush-era plans to put a missile defense system in Eastern Europe. The Russians didn't seem to like that idea, so Obama canceled plans to built the missile defense system. The Russians later praise Obama for the possibly deadly move.
I could go on and on all day. I am fed up with this guy. We need some real change. WTF, as Sarah Palin would say
