Americans need real relief, Obama said, saying he will pass a law to give each family $1,000 a year to help them pay for higher gas prices and other rising costs.. Betsy then asks:
Why not just cut taxes instead of granting out money to everyone?As Besty surely knows, cutting taxes gives people freedom, making people dependent on government money, makes them dependent on the government. Oh, and the spending clause allows the government to attach all kinds of strings to the money--thereby further regulating our lives.
But in addition to simply cutting taxes, why not increase the supply of oil (and thereby decrese the price of gas) by allowing drilling in the United States.
Oh, wait, Democrats can't do that--that would lose the environmental wacko vote.
