Democrats want us dependent on government

Our country faces a spending crisis, not a revenue crisis.
Obama and his minions would have you believe that if we simply tax the rich a little more, it will solve our deficit and debt problems. Not true. The government could tax the rich at 100 percent of their income, and it still wouldn't solve the problem. The problem will never be solved until Congress quits overspending. Make no mistake about it, the government will spend whatever is sent to it, spend it and come looking for more.
The DSC (Democrats/socialists/communists) are finally admitting that the Bush tax cuts were not just for the rich but for everyone. If they are allowed to expire at the end of this year, everyone's taxes will increase, not just those of the rich. The goal of the DSC is to destroy capitalism and replace it with socialism, which will eventually morph into communism. For 75 or more years, the DSC has worked to make as many people dependent on government as possible. Our recent presidential election bears this out. Had it not been for the takers, that is, those on food stamps, Medicaid, unemployment compensation, etc., Obama would never have been re-elected. How could he possibly have been, since he did nothing to restore the economy in four years? Unemployment grew under his administration, the debt soared by almost $6 trillion and the economy is barely growing at all. For this, he deserved re-election? I don't think so.
Obama wants to tax the rich at a higher rate. This is a drop in the bucket compared to the amount of money the government spends. He simply wants to punish the rich for being rich. It has long been the policy of the DSC to punish achievement and reward sloth.
The administration should relax the onerous load of regulation put on business and allow capitalism to flourish. That would bring in much more revenue than any tax increase. But since Obama's goal, as I've said before, is to destroy capitalism, this can't be allowed to happen.
