We do not have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem. Mr. Santelli (the father of the Tea Party) hits the nail right on the head. You can not confiscate enough from the “rich” to even make the smallest impact on our yearly deficits and accumulated debt. We must cut spending now, across the board, no matter how painful it might be or the country will cease to exist as a world economic power.
As a matter of perspective, when Obama came into office, the National debt stood at just over $9 trillion. By election day later this year, it will be approaching $16 trillion. If Obama is re-elected and continues to spend at his current pace, he will have amassed more debt in his 8 years in office than ALL previous presidents combined. If that fact alone does not make you vote him out of office and half of Congress with him, I have no additional words for you. You are a lost cause.
