Debt Deal Wrap Up

The long, grueling, aggravating debt limit debate is over!

Unfortunately, everyone thinks the liberals got taken to the cleaners, when in reality, conservatives lost big. We wanted Cut, Cap, and Balance, but what we got was Add, Slow, and Tax. The 12-member committee will not work in our favor.

The committee requires 7 members to approve of the findings, that means just one out of the six conservatives that will be appointed needs to agree to tax hikes, and they’ll be accepted. That does not bode well. Granted, just one liberal needs to sign on to no tax hikes but given past history…

This plan still grows the government, supposedly at a slower rate than it would have had this deal not taken place. It doesn’t actually pay down our debt, it grows our debt. Cut, Cap, and Balance would have actually paid down our debt, but of course, doing something that will actually solve the problem is too “draconian” for liberals so they will vote it down every time.

Americans wanted a solution, they got a deal. Now that the deal is done, politicians have high-tailed it out of town for a month-long recess. What happens next? Besides the next battle over the budget, over regulations, taxes and the second part of the debt limit fight. Oh wait, that’s plenty to fight over.

Liberals have laid out their vision of America: soak the job creators, small businesses, and family farmers; and anyone who’s unemployed can go build roads. Conservatives need to change the message to helping our job creators actually create jobs, by removing burdensome regulations and lowering the tax rate so that they are globally competitive. We also need to remove all subsidies.

The top 2% of earners pay 40% of the tax burden while the bottom 50% of earners pay just 3% of the tax burden. You tell me if the wealthy “pay their fair share.” The only card the liberals have is this idea that the wealthy don’t pay anything in taxes and that apparently everyone else relies so heavily on government they’ll die if programs are cuts by even a penny.

Americans are smarter, and better than that. We know that the government is so entwined in business that companies are choking. We know that regulations and the new healthcare law have made it far more expensive to hire a new employee. We know that the government is too involved in our lives.

Now the question becomes, will Americans stand up for the few politicians that are actually fighting to let the free market create jobs and reduce government dependency?

  1. Obama wants this country to become communist. If people can’t see that they haven’t studied history. He also wants to be president again to accomplish it. He calls it socialist. I just had this conversation with a very liberal person that believes in Obama and doesn’t understand what is wrong with socialism. He didn’t see it as communist either. How could 1 president destroy this country so fast? Can we turn it around? Jobs won’t come back because he can’t accomplish his desire if they do.

    • Institute a FLAT TAX for everyone and the debt will disappear as long as Democrats can curb their spending spree and take care of matters at home instead of abroad!

  2. It’s really very simple. Socialism is a myth, a kind of nirvanic utopia in the minds of the useful idiots. Obama wants to bring the United States to its knees so that he and his minions and his controllers can set it up they way they want it. Do the liberals think their lives will be better? Think again.

  3. The major mistake in this article is where the author
    talks about the 6 “conservatives” on the committee.
    What should have been stated was 6 Republicans.
    When applied to congress, Republican rarely means conservative. With 1 or 2 exceptions, there are no
    Republicans in congress, that have been there for
    more than 6 or so years, who are conservative.
    Everyone of these “old timers” have voted time after time to expand the size and power of the federal government. oh sure, when it’s election time they go home and talk as conservative as
    can be. One would think they are Ron Paul’s twin.
    But, back in D.C., they vote for just about every
    piece of legislation that is throttling the life out of this country. They are as complicit in the current state of affairs as the Democrats. Outside of supporting the 2nd amendment (usually), I don’t see a whole lot of difference. These guys are as
    drunk on power as most of the body-politic is addicted to what they think is a free lunch. It is not
    at all difficult to understand why Boehner and the
    rest of the Republican leadership botched up the
    debt ceiling fiasco. To cut the size and power of the machine that they run is so foreign to them that they would go catatonic if they seriously tried.
    That is why they hate the Tea Party’s and conservative talk radio. They threaten their power.
    It will take way to long to replace these dinosaurs
    by voting them out of office — the country will have been destroyed by then. The only hope I see is for
    the election of a strong, conservative, president
    who will bully Republicans in congress to doing what needs to be done and, as importantly, get
    at least 1 more conservative justice on the Supreme Court. Unfortunately, that candidate does not seem to be visible at this time.
    If we don’t get that, you had better
    start figuring out where to move.
