    Statements like that is what gets us into trouble. Bailouts, stimulus money, socialized medicine, social security, medicare, medicaid and numerous other social programs are costing us, and will continue to cost us trillions of dollars. Dollars that MUST be taken from the American people for redistribution.

    The Bush tax cuts are most likely going to be allowed to expire under Obama which means taxes for EVERYONE are going up. Increases in state taxes and excise taxes have already gone up. When government increases, taxes increase, for EVERYONE. Everyone focuses on income tax, but there a million taxes local, state and the federal government can raise to take more of your money to pay for all of their programs and government workers and their guaranteed pension plans, health care benefits and early retirements.

    And no, I don’t want taxes on people making more than $250,000 going up and no, I don’t make more than $250,000. People that make that much represent only 1.5% of the population. Does anyone really think that you could extract enough in taxes from 1.5% of the population to pay for the trillions of dollars in spending that has occurred already and will continue to occur for decades to come?

    Increasing taxes is NOT the answer. But that is what we are ALL going to get.

    Or maybe it is the answer. Of the previous four presidents, only Bill Clinton balanced the budget.

    If you want to save money, I think that the war on Iraq cost at least 27 times as much as the cost of a real healthcare bill. Maybe cut back on the 1/4 of the budget that goes to your military, including profiteering by Republicans that doubled the cost of fuel to the military.

    If you have to raise taxes, what’s wrong with raising them for those who are hurt the least by it?
