What’s the hurry? Why are Democrats trying to rush through so much, so quickly? What are they trying to hide with their promises that everything will be fine and all our lives will improve?
Plenty. Health care reform will be health care disaster. They want to replace the current system, not fix its flaws with what can only be called socialized medicine. Bureaucrats will decide the value of your life and whether to allow you medicine or surgery.
Taxes and spending will rise to unsustainable levels. They are already here with calls for new taxes on “the rich” to pay for it. The golden goose can only lay so many eggs before it croaks from overwork.
Opinion polls are beginning to show doubts are creeping in about President Obama. The white robe on the false messiah is looking a little worn.
Can Republicans do a better job? Have they learned their lesson about spending that they forgot the last time they were in power? The only way to find out is to return them to power and keep an eye on them. The current bunch wants to turn America into something it is not and never has been.
