Raising Taxes Is An Accomplishment?
So now we've seen the Democrats' Mother of All Tax Hikes. But Washington has a spending problem, not a revenue problem. The federal government is set to spend more money next year than the GDP of every country on Earth other than Japan. The Democrats have already voted to raise taxes by more than $100 billion this year, so it’s not surprising that their idea of tax reform simply means higher taxes. The surprising part is that they’ll tell you with a straight face that a trillion dollar tax hike is a major accomplishment.

Trillion dollars, trillion dollars, now where have I heard that number before?. If it's a spending problem it's a Republican spending problem. Get out of Iraq, find Bin Laden then, get out of Afghanistan and come home unless you want to spend another trillion on Iran as a prelude to WWIV and a permanent siege of legitimate government services.
