“Why would you want to increase anybody’s taxes right now?” Senator McCain asked Senator Obama in Round 1 of tonight’s debate.
The answer is boiled down to the essential difference between Conservatives and Liberals:
- Because Senator Obama and his party believe the answer lies not in the individual, but in the government. And thus, the government requires more money to affect their solution. Joe the plumber simply does not need the ‘extra’ money, because he is not part of the solution.
You can shake it and bake it any number of ways you like from either side. That’s the answer to Senator McCain’s question.
And that answer is an affront to the United States Constitution. Silly old antiquated parchment that it is.
UPDATE: Related question later from McCain regarding Obama’s central government economic plan: “Why do we always have to spend more?” Indeed.
