In his column of (Dec. 20), Jack Batson trumpets partisanship: Vote Democrat and they will soak the rich.
Democrats will raise taxes on the rich. That means taxes will go up for all of us. When taxes on corporations go up, the increase is passed on to – guess who? – you and me. According to Mr. Batson, that’s good. He tells us all of the things that our taxes have done for us.
Well, he really doesn’t tell us about all the ways the government is spending our money, only the things they are supposed to do.
What he doesn’t say is that we are supporting 12 million illegal immigrants in the Democrats’ hope that they will receive some form of amnesty and vote Democrat. He doesn’t tell us about the $17 trillion in debt run up by our government, the biggest share by the Democrats.
If the government only did what it is authorized to do in the Constitution, we wouldn’t have big debt and we wouldn’t have to increase taxes.
Democrats, good guys; Republicans bad guys. Right? Wrong!
Almost all of them are bad. What we need to do is find people who will support America and the limited government defined in the Constitution. We need to get rid of the corrupt Republicans and Democrats. Taxes are just a symptom of the failure of both parties to do their jobs. Their responsibilities are clearly defined by the law of the land. If they were loyal to their oaths, we wouldn’t be paying the taxes we pay now. Corrupt!
I don’t know what never-never land Mr. Batson is living in, but he should know better. You and I can’t afford to live on money we don’t have. Why should our government borrow us into bankruptcy? No, Mr. Batson, we need responsible representatives no matter what we call them. We sure don’t have them now. Flush the Washington toilet – Democrats and Republicans alike.
