In response to kelldog1's comment:
REALITY IS THAT WE NEED GOVERNANCE THAT IS CORNERSTONED IN COMPROMISE!
REALITY IS THAT SOCIAL SECURITY IS NOT AN ENTITLEMENT, AS DESERVING FOLKS HAVE PAID IN FOR YEARS.
REALITY IS THAT OUR DEBT ( RIGHT NOW) IS NOT UNMANAGEABLE.
REALITY IS THAT WE NEED GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION TO JUMP START GROWTH IN THIS ECONONOMY BECAUSE THE PRIVATE SECTOR HAS FAILED!
REALITY IS THAT THE REPUBLICANS BETTER GET A CLUE, ABOUT THE REALITY THAT OUR GREAT NATION FACES!!!
And what will Obama cut in his spending to meet tax increases?
This President's spending has increased the national debt 5 trillion in 4 years that is more debt accumulated in that 4 years then all of the previous presidents combined.
Obama's spending is the problem raising taxes will only give him more to redistribute.
And finally Obama has an idea about how much he wants to raise taxes has he submitted a plan to the American public on how he plans to cut programs and spending?
