Just not sure what to think about this…

According to White House estimates, “President Bush’s tax cut and the sluggish economy have combined to virtually erase the projected budget surplus not dedicated to Social Security this year and next”. My favorite part? Bush, speaking in Independence, Mo., defended the tax cut and the size of the surplus: “We must resist the temptation of a bigger threat to growth, and that’s excessive federal spending.” He continued, “We don’t want the budget to be a hollow noise. We want the budget to be real, and that’s why I’ve been given the power of the veto.” Um, hello? If you have money in the bank doesn’t mean you HAVE to spend it. At least that’s what my dad always tells me. How about saving? How about earning interest on it? I just don’t get it. If anyone can enlighten me, please do.

Besides, the surpluss exsists because the government has overtaxed its’ citizens…tax income over expenses becomes surpluss. Giving it back to the taxpayers is the appropriate remedy, Nothing “stupid” or “idiotic” about it, if you shift your paradigms about the man and study the issue.

My other rant? They spent billions of dollars to mail us a letter saying “you will get a check”. Hello? Just send the check. I didn’t need the other letter too. Send the letters to those that aren’t getting a check if you feel the need to send something.
