If the American people voted for Democrats this past election cycle because they want to reduce and restrict their personal freedoms, particularly in how they spend their own hard earned money, they got exactly what they wanted. During debate about the spendulus bill that the Democrats are pushing through the senate (And don’t even try arguing Collins’ and Specter’s votes mean it is a “bipartisan” bill. They are nothing but Democrats in Republicans’ clothing.), John Kerry stamped his little control freak, metro-sexual feet and whined about how the tax cuts that are included give the American people too much freedom over their own money:
I’ve supported many tax cuts over the years, and there are tax cuts in this proposal. But a tax cut is non-targeted.
If you put a tax cut into the hands of a business or family, there’s no guarantee that they’re going to invest that or invest it in America.
They’re free to go invest anywhere that they want if they choose to invest.
This is a socialist’s worst fear. Allowing the American people the freedom to invest their money the way they want without any government intervention means the elitists who think they know better but don’t can’t dictate where the money is spent. To the socialist’s mind, all money – all activity if you really want to be honest – is to be spent for the good of the collective and not for the good of the individual who earned that money, which is what John Kerry said on the floor of the senate.
