Dear Senator Nelson,
There is a bill being talked about that will tax soft drinks with the concept it will reduce consumption. If that is true, and we trust higher sales taxes will curb consumption, then by extension and logic, we must assume higher income taxes will reduce spending (by the entity being taxed, not by the government). You cannot use the “tax it” argument to reduce an action and, at other times, create an action. You cannot own both sides of the debate, as it makes no sense that similar actions will cause different results. It’s almost as if politicians take on a different side of a debate for the same ideology—depending on their agenda and goals. Whatever the case, it’s a weak argument and we shouldn’t expect this schoolyard argument from our representatives. They say that insanity is “doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results”. Do you expect different results? This leads me to the “free governmental healthcare” debacle. Your stated argument is that this will somehow have a better outcome than our current broken social security system and will cost the tax payer nothing.
Most of Us Know
Most of us know government healthcare will come at a price. The burden will fall on business and business will pass it along to the consumer.
Most of us know that restricting free speech leads to oppression and control. Our president is trying to quiet those with a different opinion than his—especially on the health care debate.
Most of us know bigger government leads to higher taxes. It has never been more evident.
Most of us know oppressive leaders like Moammar Gadhafi, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chaves, et al., praise our current president. If that doesn’t scare you, nothing will.
Most of us know, tax cheats such as Charlie Rangel, Timothy Geithner, and others, are given a free pass by the democrats.
Your voting record reveals this as the direction you choose to take our country. Click here for your report card Senator Nelson. Not impressive for 31 years on the job. Perhaps it is time for Term Limits.
Red Dog, out…
