Money Money Money

Want to cut the deficit?  Not willing to raise your taxes?  Some things to consider:
1.  Are you ready to homeschool your children?  Or do you have the funds needed for a private education?
2.  How do you plan to protect your family when you are burglarized?  Who will prosecute/defend/guard those accused of crimes that may hurt your children?
3.  Love spending time at the DMV?  Hopefully, cause one way to keep it running will be to volunteer your time behind the counter.
4.  Own a snowplow?  Or maybe 4-wheel drive that can dance on ice?  Want to roast under the sun while you try to repair potholes?  Or will you just chance not landing in one?
5.  Life wearing you out?  Want to reconnect with nature and visit a nearby National Park?  The Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Shenandoah, Abe Lincoln's Monument?   Don't be surprised when you have to pay a $100.00 per person fee when you show up at the gate.

Last I checked the people who work the above mentioned jobs don't live in mansions or vacation to the Caribbean. Only the democratically elected law-makers who regulate their rights and cut their pay do.  and don't forget the (private-sector) wall-street millionaires who started this whole mess.

Seriously, living in Wisconsin gets me more politically riled up then DC ever did.  I'm all about a government that is fiscally responsible.  But if we want them to do their job we need to make our own sacrifices.  So what is it, give up constitutional rights or pay a slightly higher tax?  Cause we all know the trillions that go into Defense and (Bush-made-) Security aren't getting trimmed anytime soon.

Up Next:  Reid's 4-month mark.  I promise not to bog you down with political rants all week long.
I am my father's child.

I'm a rep. and I agree completely. If they are spending like crazy it has to give somewhere. Tax cuts sound great but in reality, tax raises are what we need.

Yup, you are your fathers child! But I do agree with you. Truthfully I do not believe a tax raise is needed, but I do believe wiser spending is needed. They need to be more accountable for the ways they spend the taxpayers hard earned money. So much waste. So much greed. So much dishonesty. Republican or Democrat, poiticians are not on my list of highly respectable people. Though you can not tell me the Republicans are not all about the rich getting richer. Maybe I heard my father talk about them one too many times! But I do agree with him. And I do believe your Governor is a major power-control freak. I don't believe it has as much to do with budgeting as I think it has to do with politics. Wisconsin is being closely watched. Hope the Democrats can hold out. Mom

I fear we are just beginning to see what Republican rule will bring. Wisconsin is just the tip of the iceberg. If they win, collective bargaining will become a thing of the past in many places. I am always so amazed at people who whine that Democrats want to take our freedoms away. Republicans are ten times more likely to do so than Democrats. And yes, your mother is right, you are my child and I'm damned proud of it!
Love, Pa
