Unfortunately, most Freepers are still harping on something that should have happened YEARS ago. At this point, we may have to do a ball crunch to get the debt into manageable levels, but it’s not fitting with the mantra of “lower taxes.... lower taxes....” and on and on.
While as a basic principle, lower taxes IS better for the economy, but some Conservatives haven’t grasped that we are in dire traits right now in this economy. Just because THEY are doing ok doesn’t mean everyone else is. And while they shrug those folks off as ‘parasites’ and such, they should recognize that these were fine and hard working people who probably didn’t pay attention to politics as much as they should have, but it doesn’t mean they are welfare parasites either. Most would probably prefer a job, but “lower taxes” when you are barely paying a light bill doesn’t computer for the average citizen. Even if it make them angry that the average citizen could have cared less three, four, 10 years ago...
Then its about time everybody works extra hard pointing out that lower taxes and less regulation is exactly what will get businesses once again in the mood to expand and start hiring. Right now businesses are holding back because they dont know what is coming. The regulations in place increase their costs as well as the uncertainty of what taxes etc will be cause them to hold back.
If those you know want jobs again they had better be calling their Congress Critters to NOT increase taxes and reduce the regulations and make it easier and more profitable for businesses to expand.
