Paying for Obama's Proposals

The president is proposing $83 billion in new spending without increasing the budget deficit. He will do this by increasing taxes on rich people and closing their tax loopholes. So where is this balanced approach to cutting spending? We'll, he's counting theoretical funds not spent on the Iraq War and imaginary funds soon to be not spent on the Afghanistan War. Next we can pretend that we would have purchased China and then pretend that we saved money by not purchasing China.

Isn't it about time that those who have won life's lottery, those who are the most fortunate among us, begin to share the sacrifice? After all, it's not like they built their businesses.

There are some "proposals" you just don't want to hear about on Valentine's Day.  President Obama's are among them.

That's because the National Taxpayer's Union has come out with a line by line analysis of the President's SOTU proposals and found their total cost to be a whopping $83.4 billion increase in federal spending.

Don't worry, though -- President Obama doesn't plan for any of them to increase the deficit "by a single dime" . . . because he just wants to raise more taxes.
