Who’s to blame?
Keith Hansen: “President Barack Obama and Gov. Mark Dayton have proposed more
taxation of working folks.”
Who are they supposed to propose taxation on - the non-working folks?
“Both leaders fail to see a need to cut spending in Washington or St. Paul.”
That’s blatantly false as both have publicly said that there is a need to
For some reason, the Republicans are against a balanced approach to solving
our country’s fiscal problem. Wouldn’t a normal family try and do that?
Why is the national debt at $16.5 billion? It’s because CONGRESS, not the
president, chose to spend more than is being taken in from tax receipts. To
blame only the Democrats is ridiculous.
Between 2001-06, which party had control of Congress when the national debt
was exploding due to, in part, two unnecessary wars? It was the Republicans
who were doing the excessive spending.
It’s nothing more than plain old hypocrisy for the Republicans to be pointing
fingers at the Democrats for the national debt increasing, because the GOP
wasn’t complaining about the rising debt when George W. Bush was president.
Strange, isn’t it?
Both parties are to blame for our national debt. We need to pay for that
which Congress has already spent.
