Sometimes what has to be said just takes a few lines. Sometimes you just need to write about something you just read immediately. Sometimes you just need to respond to a meme or comment that is completely out of context, factually incorrect, or both. Often in those cases, I will just write on my Facebook page instead of here. Often it is more personal commentary than the more neutral and political commentary on this site. But I wanted to share a few things I have said on Facebook, as I have nothing to hide.
“Do you ever wonder: If the Obama Stimulus saved the economy, if Obamacare created jobs and saved money, if the trade deals of the Democrats brought back jobs from overseas, if trade with Cuba is so beneficial then why do we have to force businesses to raise wages and why are there over 150 million Americans getting government aid?
Weren’t the Obama and Democrat policies (that already have been enacted) supposed to eliminate income inequality and spur job growth? Of course some will blame Republicans, but they didn’t promise these would work (in fact they warned they wouldn’t and not to pass them which Democrats did anyway).
Perhaps it takes more than redistributing someone else’s stuff, raising taxes on the people paying the taxes, and the promises of politicians seeking re-election for the 3rd decade in a row. It’s a radical idea but maybe it’s time to try something else besides tax, redistribute, and spend.”
