Random Thoughts on Obama's SOTU Speech

If Congress approved all the Obama Tax Increase, would he then bring down spending in line with tax revenue?  Cause taking 30% of millionare's income won't get you $1.6 Trillion.....

Does giving everyone a "fair shot" mean that the Government stops using tax payer money to make loans, grants and loan guarantees to "favored" companies?

Does anybody know what Warren Buffet actually pays his secretary?

Shouldn't the Government pay it's "fair share" by only accepting a pay and benefit scale equal to the mean private sector employee?

Why not promote a tax on all net worth over $10 million?  Then Buffet's secretary would (probably) not pay any more and Buffet would pay billions in taxes ....wouldn't that make him happy?

Shouldn't all government employees be forced to buy their Health Insurance on an exchange run by DC?

In 22 months businesses created over $3 million jobs...ok but you also ran up $5 trillion in debt over the same period, so the cost per job has been $333,330 per job.  You think that's a good ROI?

Does he not know that Capital Gains come from money invested with after tax income?

GM is back on top?  Not by market cap...Toyota $116B, $Volkswagon $56B, $Ford 49B, GM $39B  and GM still owes me some money!

If we're doing so well drilling our own oil, then why are gas prices double since 2008?

Why does he keep reminding us he's wealthy?

Does it really make sense to threaten to punish existing businesses for lowering their costs instead of creating an environment for new businesses to come and grow here?

We have to fund his new construction projects?  What happened to all the stimulus money?

I'd be happy to build consensus around "common sense ideas" if he actually had any....

He calls his plan the "Blueprint for An America Built to Last," .....Mao had a blueprint, Stalin had a blueprint, Reagan had a vision.......

Bottom line, more government, more taxes, more central planning by the same people that got us where we are today.....this economic system only worked on "The West Wing"
