Money Issues

The economy is going to be a big factor in the coming election. After watching the O’Reilly Factor, I am fully confident in Obama’s plans. While Papa Bear is correct in saying that Obama’s tactics can be construed as “socialist,” this is by no means a socialist movement. By taxing the rich a little more, we are helping to offset the advantage they gained with taxes from the Bush administration. It is important for us to return back to square one. The economy was just fine before the 21st century, so maybe we should revert back to old policies.

In fact, the economy is in worse condition than when Bush first took office. I hate to beat a dead horse, but the Iraq war is taking a huge chunk out of the nation’s taxes. The Republicans in Congress try to blame the Democrats for excessive spending, yet somehow seem blind to the fact that the majority of spending is on Iraq and that “pork-barrel spending” is not something that only the Democrats do. Instead of focusing on petty things, such as declaring a week something or another, let’s focus on actually getting some bills passed that use money effectively.
