Obama's 95% Illusion - From the Wall Street Journal

It never ceases to amaze me how politicians continually promise that they are going to lower taxes and still manage to provide billions upon billions in "free services." Obama is pretty much the master of this promise and is pretty charismatic so people believe him. You can link to the article explaining how he is planning to cut taxes for so many people by clicking the title of this blog post. As I've said before, it's all really socialism and wealth redistribution.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not wealthy! I am probably going to benefit from most of these tax credits he is going to pass around because I don't make enough money. Believe me though, I doubt I'll be racing to get wealthy either because I'll have to hang it all over to the government anyway. His proposal is nothing more than a giant welfare system. In fact, if you read the article, this plan is going to cost FOUR TIMES the cost of actual welfare programs but is disguised as tax cuts/credits. It really makes me worry for the future of our country. I'm not sure McCain is all that much better, but at least I'm not scared of what we'll look like in four years after him. Let me know what you think.
