Some ideas include a 'vacation' from gas tax this summer (good), doubling the tax exemption for each child (better), and suspending non-military discretionary spending for one year (best - similar to the moratorium that over 70 of your Senators, the same ones who are ranting about recession, voted against).
A few highlights from McCain's remarks:
- "We know from experience that no serious reform of the current tax code will come out of Congress, so now it is time to turn the decision over to the people." (if you're reading, that's us!)
- "In so many ways, we need to make a clean break from the worst excesses of both political parties...somewhere along the way, too many Republicans in Congress became indistinguishable from the big-spending Democrats they used to oppose."
- "Both [ Democratic opponents ] promise big 'change.' And a trillion dollars in new taxes over the next decade would certainly fit that description....All these tax increases are the fine print under the slogan of 'hope:' They're going to raise your taxes by thousands of dollars per year — and they have the audacity to hope you don't mind."
To borrow a phrase, Bully for you, John McCain. Bully for you!!
