Why does every domestic policy idea of Obama's involve either higher taxes or....?

Asked By: Captain
some sort of wealth redistribution? Nationalizing health care. Windfall profits tax. Energy "rebate", Higher taxes on the wealthy, higher cap gains tax, etc., etc., etc. And before you lash into me about rich people, just know that I have no problem with the rich being rich. My wife and I are not "rich" but my folks are and I assure that they work harder than any bum Obama wants to give their money to. Why should the wealthy be penalized for success? Is this the "change" you want?

Considering the economic crisis, how will a Democratic president help the situation right now?

Asked By: Al Bundy
This is the sole reason I'm not voting Democrat this election! I don't think that NOW is the time to raise taxes to implement socialized programs. How does that promote economic growth? We NEED to fix the economy and the Democrats just can't do it! If you raise the tax on any corporation, they'll simply close up shop and move overseas, (or to Mexico or Canada). Why is that so hard to comprehend? Their products would still be sold here and they would gladly pay the tariffs on imports coming in to U.S. as compared to the astronomical tax they'd have to pay to STAY here! If the economy was stronger, I can see this tax as being acceptable because there would be another company to "take the place" of the departed, but NOT NOW...once the jobs are lost, they aren't coming back! Since the economy seems to be the "HUB" of all other issues, this is why I'll be voting Republican this election!
