Lowering your taxes let you keep more of your money is spending is something they think they deserve all of it.
And you're lucky to have what they give you absolutely is their money and so all of -- if they give you look but some taxes back and they've spent money.
Because they've let you keep your -- in their world in this magical world of liberals.
That's spending because you've got to keep your money it never occurred to them.

A revenue problem Eric last year the government had.
A record year in revenues the highest ever.
So if we're not balancing the budget with that much more money than they've ever had.
Giving them more is like giving an -- -- which he to a seventeen year old with the car keys.
You know to a Mercedes it doesn't make any sense right so hard to -- -- -- -- a billion bucks on the -- there are 300000.

To create this imagery.
That all the sequestration is just.
Devastating to the national budget we'll stop the wine tasting that the USDA's.
Gonna have out and the wine country of California.
I think meat inspections are probably more important than wine tasting those -- the kind of decisions that the government is making arbitrarily.
To try to inflict as much pain on the political -- but life.
I -- I Benson earlier we talked about about why did they want to scare us.
Why they -- -- have us feel that that is going to be painful well because the president needs for to be painful he said it was going to be.
He's basically been caught with so many Pinocchio is according to the Washington Post.
Debt that now if he says well it really wasn't that bad part but I got to go but I want to ask you -- but but there are Republicans also that -- warn -- of sequestration so.
Most of them because the defense cuts in there are going to be some consequences they're not good because there's no discretion.
That's what needs to happen discretion.
Good judgment we don't have either one of those things operative in Washington right now -- -- what's coming.
