The 85 billion dollar sequestration is not a debate on budget cuts . Its the debate on the level of Increased spending . It has nothing to do with actual cuts to a budget . The spending is going to continue to grow at staggering levels even if the sequestration occurs.
President Obama already has achieved significant tax increases on Business and the middle class via Obama Care. He got further Tax increases on the wealthiest Americans as well as the working class in the last Tax deal . This all at a time when the economy did not grow in the last quarter of the year.
This reality corresponds with the Obama Administration record spending in his first term as the DEBT of the nation has grown to 16.6 Trillion . The debt 10.6 Trillion when Obama took office. The Obama spending addiction has grown into a tax and regulation addiction . Perhaps the average Obama voter is clueless to the realities of this debt to even the next generation. Otherwise they would of not voted for more of the same .It is clearly a spending problem and it needs to be addressed in a real way for this nation to grow in prosperity. Something We all want long term. But currently we are chosing an immediate cookie over a well cooked steak . And if we continue to do so , even the cookies will crumble.
One of the only real solutions for the country is to grow the economy while actually cutting spending .A real CUT or Balance Budget amendment . We need to pay are bills but we need to do it in a way that doesn't commit the country to economic suicide . Than there are no winners.(just ask greece)
I am not optimistic about the nations future as it is over taxed , over regulated and the current admistration has a anti domestic energy policy.When you couple these anti capitalistic policies and add in the Obama spending addiction the nation looks more and more like the titanic and the Iceburg is closing in .While Obama plays Chicken Little as to what 85 billion dollars means to us all . He is really debating that an ice cube is a bigger threat than the ICE BURG. Sadly, too many Americans believe it .
