Re: “Friday night lines

I did not mean to blame Obama for this mess. I admit he took over in difficult circumstances. I thought he would end the wars. I voted for him, and for change. I do not understand how so many people think we can continue business as usual (from a spending standpoint).

Congress controls this country, not the President. Clinton was the beneficiary of a strong Republican Congress a great economy, and previous policies. To his credit, he had been a governor and knew how to run government, and how to get people to work together.

I give Obama credit for pushing a national healthcare plan. I simply wish he would have given it serious thought and some creativity. The only selling point was to make insurance companies pay for people with pre-existing conditions.

Re: “Friday night lines

I am tired of the criticism of the Tea Partiers. I want the liberals to respond to the following. Federal gov't revenue is about $2T, and expenditures are almost $4T. We are spending twice as much as we take in. I agree we need to raise taxes. People are complaining that Womack would not support a hiking trail for NW Arkansas. I applaud him.

$2T versus $4T is stupdity. We cannot keep on doing things the old way. I voted for Obama because he promised change. He has not delievered. He inherited a mess, but he was a US Senator for several years prior and he did NOTHING when he was in that position (except make things worse). I agree with the TP we need to make drastic changes to downsize gov't. $2T vs $4T.
