President Obama's economic policy
Conservative action will help U.S. recover
The Democrats dominate the nation and our state. In the past four years the federal government is out of control — over 40 percent of the government’s spending is borrowed money. President Obama’s plan is to boost the middle class by spending more [“Obama lays out vision for economy,” page one, Feb. 13]. Obama has had four years to help the middle class and the middle class is rapidly moving toward poverty.
There are more taxes, home values lowered, higher costs, costly regulations, loss of meaningful jobs, poor education, out-of-control rogue nations and host of trends toward government bankruptcy and deterioration of national defense. A conservative government is the only way out of a national quagmire.
Conservatives must vote in a block as the Democrats. The Democrats don’t vote the issues but rather against conservatives who they falsely labeled as mean-spirited, selfish and dangerous radicals. The conservatives have strong principals, so strong some will not vote for a conservative who supports a single anti-conservative interest. Hence, the strong-willed conservatives must take responsibility for the state of our distressed nation.
