Dear Editor:

Better or worse off?

It’s been said the art of government consists in taking as much money as possible from one class of citizens to give it to the other. This truth epitomizes Obama’s socialistic plan to “redistribute” the wealth!

Obama blames his failure on President Bush’s policies (Giving tax cuts to the rich). Now, if those tax cuts were so bad, then why on earth did Obama “extend those Bush Tax Cuts” in 2010?

Did Obama ignore his ‘rich-hating base’ and remember what worked for J.F.K. and Ronald Reagan whose tax cutting policies gave us a great economy?

Folks, we don’t have a tax problem of being undertaxed, rather over taxed. Our problem is one of senseless borrowing and spending.

Here’s a hard and fast truth: more burdensome taxes would only give the government more money to “spend” on pet projects with nothing going to pay on our 16 trillion dollar debt! By the way, Obama is responsible for 6 trillion of that!

Obama’s ‘promised’ reason for the 787 billion dollar stimulus was that the unemployment rate would be under 8 percent — it’s closer to 12% with 23 million jobless. The median household income has also dropped by $4,000! Gas prices have doubled under Obama’s watch and food prices have soared, not to mention healthcost and higher premiums.

When Mike Wallace asked David Axelrod if we are better off today than we were 4 years ago, he squirmed and blinked like a frightened lizard in a hail storm and deliberately lied as all the liberal media are doing, of course, should the liberals, especially the liberal media T.V. networks, dare admit we’re worse off today than prior to Obama, that would also be an admission for his replacement.

The only way to remotely understand why liberal democrats stubbornly refuse to admit we’re worse off now than we were 4 years ago is to accept the wisdom of the words of Benjamin Franklin: “Convince a man against his will, and he’s of the same opinion still!”

Fact: California, New York, Illinois, Pennsylvania and virtually all other states with democrat governors are bankrupt. Conversely, Ohio, Texas, Louisiana, Wisconsin, Utah, New Jersey and most all other states with republican governors have balanced budgets and surpluses! Why?

Governor Romney took a huge deficit in Massachuetts and turned it into a surplus with a billion dollar rainy day fund, and led their educational rating to number one in the nation!

Obama has the lame-stream media in the tank for him, especially MSNBC with his worshipful hacks, Chris Matthews, Ed Shultz, Rachael Maddow and CNN Hack Soledad O’Brien. They are a disgrace to the profession of journalism; MSNBC is, in actuality, B.S. NBC!

Remember, Obama said if he didn’t turn the economy around in 4 years he’d be a one term president. Join me in obliging him!

You’re welcome!
