The Era Of Big Government Is Back

The Era Of Big Government Is Back

...the era of big government is back! Not only has the Republican Party not decreased the size and scope of the federal government, it has exploded the growth of government to unprecedented levels!


How can you argue with that statement? Bush is still spending like a drunken sailor. We cannot maintain this level of spending without federal revenues (ie TAXES) increasing! Of course, I'd like this to happen via a booming economy, not by tax increases, but as the deficit continues to balloon, where do we draw the line?

George W. Bush's proposed $2.57 trillion budget increases spending 38% from what the federal government was spending when Bush became president. His budget also increases spending 3.6% over last year's budget.
