What is it with Democrats? Were are their ideas? I truly wish they had some, really I do. Then they could be debated. But all we get from Democrats is opposition, motions to censure and talk of impeachment of the president for alleged wiretapping without a warrant. It isn’t wiretapping, but that’s beside the point.
Ultra liberal senator Russell Feingold introduced a resolution to censure the president and his colleagues ran from him like scalded dogs. The best idea house minority leader Nancy Pelosi can come up with is to tax the subsidies corporations get when they send jobs abroad. If she lowered taxes on those corporations and some unnecessary regulations, too, it might improve chances they would stay in this country. High taxes and an unfriendly business environment is what drives some of them overseas. But to a tax and tax democrat like Pelosi, that doesn’t register.
Democrats keep telling us we will soon see their agenda. But what’s taking them so long? It must be because they are trying to hide their real agenda, which I can guarantee you will include higher taxes.
