Barney Frank, just yesterday, said that we shouldn’t be concerned with the deficit “fear” right now….he indicated plans to spend, spend, spend our way out of the financial crisis (that he helped create)….and that if we can’t raise taxes now, we will do it later and we will squeeze it out of the wealthy.
I have paraphrased his words, but if you don’t believe listen here:
From HotAir.com, here is the transcript, if you’d like to read it:
I think at this point, there needs to be an immediate increase in spending, and I think this is a time when deficit fear has to take a second, uh, a second seat. I do think this is the time for a very important kind of dose of [unintelligible]. Yes, I think later on, there should be tax increases. Speaking personally, I think there are a lot of rich people out there who we can tax at a point down the road to recover some of this money.
It just galls me to hear him say that NOW the deficit doesn’t matter because we need to spend our way out of the problem primarily caused by Barney and his Democrat friends (including Obama and ACORN).
However, just about every Democrat who has had the chance, including Obama, said we should end the Iraq War (winners or not) because we are spending too much money in Iraq. I think each of these Democrats (and some Republicans, too) need to go read what the founders intended the government’s role to be. The governments role is to provide for a military to defend…..but the government was not formed to take from one person and give to another nor was it formed to privatize banks and slide us into a Socialist nation……Democrats would rather insert Social Engineering (ie Home mortgages for every one who can’t afford one) into the housing and lending markets, cause a huge financial crisis, blame Republicans for their own messes, and then tax and spend us all into oblivion! But, in their eyes, if we need to do what is right and Constitutional in taking the fight to our enemies and protecting our homeland…..we are just spending too much and that is when we should worry about the deficit! GEEZ!
Barney, Pelosi, Reid, Dodd, Obama and those like them need to GO!
On top of Barney Frank’s plans, Obama’s plans, as we learned in his answer to Joe The Plumber, is to increase taxes and “spread the wealth”. Not to mention that when Obama lets Bush’s tax cuts expire, EVERYONE will have higher taxes. Obama’s plan will most definitely suppress job creation and demotivate small businesses.
Obama also plans to let ACORN assist in “setting the agenda” for the nation. You remember ACORN don’t you? They are the taxpayer-funded left wing (claims to be bipartisan) group at the heart and center of the subprime mortgage failure and financial crisis. R-E_C_K_L_E_S_S! (ACORN is also Voter Fraud Central….They are actively working to kill any confidence Americans have in their right to vote by cheating with and for their leader, Obama)
God forbid that the reckless, Socialist Democrats share power with Obama….America can’t afford it financially, morally, or otherwise! Pray for this election….!
