It was a solid b, which is very good under the circumstances.
As for Clint Eastwood, I loved his "We own this country" statement. It is an affirmation of The Founders' intentions. It is a reminder to those who do not follow politics closely (i.e. those voters that Jonah Goldberg often refers to who will be deciding this election) that the left does not honor this sentiment.
So well said Chris and thank you George.
What I don't understand is why this isn't a huge issue. Do people not know what is happening here. This isn't simply a mandate about buying health insurance. It represents a potential mandate about every aspect of American life that a government "official" may come up with on any given "Friday afternoon"!
And why aren't the GOP candidates all over this issue?
I believe Charles Murray has been trying to sound the alarm about this for some time: http://www.aei.org/event/100281
Rob, Rob, Rob! Unless the federal income tax is completely eliminated in order to create a national sales tax, we will end up with double taxation. Nothing in our history would indicate that an agreement to merely limit the income tax rates in return for agreeing to a national sales tax would be honored over time. In 1986, the elimination of a great number of tax write offs were justified by the promise of lower rates; I don't here anyone who wants to increase tax rates offering to reinstate the write offs. Sadly, it is a absolute that no matter how much the government brings in, it will spend beyond its revenues.
We must starve the beast to help force decreases in spending.
