Democrats want to hike taxes and destroy the safety net

To The Herald-Whig:

It is now clear that Democrats have decided to destroy Social Security and Medicare.

They believe that they can blame Republicans for everything! More importantly, they don't care what happens as long as someone else is blamed when they ruin jobs and the tax base. And when jobs won't provide taxes, who will pay for the safety net?

Sound extreme? Why would Democrats promote a tax the rich plan that is useless, a deficit reduction plan that doesn't work, offer no spending cuts, and then go on vacation? Because they are totally ignorant of economics!

Does anyone believe you can double spending and then blame someone else for not paying enough taxes?

Does it work for you Democrats to spend more money every year and ask your neighbors -- the rest of us -- to pay your debts? Only if the rest of us are fools!
