Watch what you say, the Evil Department of Homeland Security may be watching.
As for Ohio, most of the legislation they are ramming through without fully reading will kill our already screwed up economy. The Universal Health care will become no choice as no changes are allowed in your existing health care plan once enacted. If there are changes better or worse, you must switch to the federal plan and once in it, you cannot leave. I'm in that bracket that if my employer dumps us into the public plan, I'm not eligible for reduced cost and have to possible pay up to $6000 a year from my wages. If I don't, I'll be taxed extra and still have no health care. This is based upon their numbers and not some shock jock on the radio.
Cap and trade is another disaster in the making. They want to switch to a Green economy, but how do you reconcile the cost to manufacturing? They say it takes 230 tons of steel to make a windmill, but who said it will be US steel? Cap and Trade will be the final coffin nail for US steel.
Then there is the fact that our economy is mostly based upon the service industry now, and not manufacturing. The manufacturing of durable goods is the back bone of an economy and the real wealth in it along with energy development, and natural resources. We gave up on these and conceded these to China and India as well as the middle east.
If you want to fix an economy, give these areas an 50% cut in their taxes and watch things fly. Right now, we are poised to have the highest tax rate in the world, we will pass Canada, and France. This will kill manufacturing.
I think he means well, but even JFK cut taxes to help, not raise them. I want someone in that office that thinks about those who live in this country first and worry about the rest of the world not second or even third, around five or six place would be good. Also before someone ask, I'm an independent.
