Like most greedy Americans, they were spending that money and living beyond their means...and now we are all paying for it in the form of a deep recession.
Unfortunately, Dem and Rep alike would need to spend big to get out of this economic mess. Now the midlife crisis Teabaggers have a cause to take up: protecting the division of social classes.
They hate on immigrants, although there are none in their upper-middle-class, white, suburban neighborhoods. They hate on the unemployed who have no health insurance. They hate on the government for allowing an intelligent, black leader move our country two steps forward rather than leaving it in its downward, conservative spiral.
I like that Obama made health insurance for all a priority. (I have excellent insurance personally, and I could be impacted by this big time. But I'm willing to make sacrifices for others.) How will it be paid for? He has forced the country to find a way to pay for it and by doing so, give up so much unnecessary spending in the coming years. That's what you call focusing on your priorities. Something our ADD nation has been failing at for years.
