FREEZE ALL Government hiring (no replacements for retiring/voluntary resignations)! Stops major part of government cost growth (personnel costs). Slows down implementation of oppressive regulations (fewer gov workers to enforce them). Makes it easier to shut down unproductive programs (remaining gov workers won't keep working unpaid overtime on junk programs).

That sounds great Michael, except our neew/old government LIVES for hiring more government workers. Never going to happen at the federal level, BUT jump on your local and state governments with both feet.

Freeze? More like when hell freezes over. The private citizens will bail out the government workers pensions as they watch their own diminish.

Where is the "like" button?

Obama has staked out a very dogmatic and inflexible position on class-warfare tax hikes and he obviously wants all of us to think only the “rich” will be impacted.

I think it’s foolish to penalize investors, entrepreneurs, small business owners and other upper-income taxpayers. What nation, after all, has ever prospered by placing obstacles in front of those who create jobs? France? Don’t make me laugh.

But I’m also amazed that anyone believes Obama isn’t going to screw the middle class as well. The simple reality is that there aren’t enough rich people to finance big government.
