That is, by far, my driving attitude in all of this. I just don’t want to pay for it. It’s not that I don’t want government to do nice things for deserving people in certain circumstances. It’s not necessarily that I’m hostile to this group of beneficiaries or that (though I am in fact hostile to some). It’s that I think most of Obama’s ideas will not work, will be a waste of money and will hurt the economy. And, flatly, I don’t want to pay for it. I don’t want to break the law. I don’t want pull a Geithner or a Daschle or anything like that. But I don’t want to pay for it. I will look for every means within the boundaries of the law to minimize what I pay in taxes and I make no apologies for that whatsoever.
Ideas on how to do that are welcome.
