You’re absolutely right. Cradle-to-grave dependency on government handouts is a much better formula for growth and prosperity for everyone.

I’d respond but a fiscal hawk just swooped away with my grandma in it’s talons. If it makes youy feel better she did scream.

Any calls for financial responsibility without addressing financial regulations is half-witted and totally ineffective. There needs to be a dramatic tightening of the laws regarding financial lobbying, executive pay, and financial rating agencies. Without it, this country will continue to be run by the same people who caused our fiscal problem in the first place. Obama can try to regulate the banks, but he’ll fail. Rmoney/Ryan, on the other hand, will give them whatever they want on a silver platter. The net result is ultimately the same.
It’s much easier to let your oppressors take what they want, than it is to fight to fix the problems that they benefit from.

Obama fixed all that, right? Let’s move on to our latest trillion dollar deficit.

“It’s a default Republican talking point to accuse all Democrats of wanting to grow government and to say that instead government should be shrunk. Despite that Republican talking point, government did grow more than at any time since World War II under their Republican president, under George W. Bush and a Republican congress, and this Democratic president is proposing shrinking government, but that will not interrupt the talking point, which alleges exactly the opposite of what’s really happening.
It’s the same thing on taxes on regulations. It is a default Republican epithet that Democrats want to increase taxes and they want to increase regulations…So they say not only does President Obama want to increase taxes and regulations, he already has. And while that talking point is a tried and true talking point, it’s an applause line, right? What the Obama administration has actually done bears no resemblance to the talking point, and is therefore a bit of a flabbergast for Republicans on this.
In January of last year, it has gone down the memory hole for Republicans, but President Obama issued an executive order and wrote an op-ed in the rabidly right wing Wall Street Journal editorial page calling for a government wide pruning of unnecessary or overly burdensome regulations. In February of 2009, President Obama implementing either the largest or one of the largest middle class tax cuts in American history. That was part of the stimulus actually, but you’d never know it from the way that the Republicans talk about it. The administration also brags on having passed 17 tax cuts specifically for small business. So naturally, keep denouncing him as raising taxes, piling on the regulations, and raising taxes.””
