Honestly, why not?
Obama wants to be Santa Claus, and the people who voted this year decided to believe in him. Give him what he wants. Lots of taxes, no entitlement reforms. Just don't grow the programs.
In a couple of years, when we have 25% unemployment, and half of the people who can get jobs are working two part-time jobs with no healthcare, maybe they'll change their votes.
At least, probably enough to take back the Senate and then later the White House.
We get the government we ask for in this country.
America asked for Obama Claus. Let's give it to them. It's probably the only way they'll learn.
