Anyone who has ever owned a real busines has done it before. After paying all of the bills and the employees, there is simply no money left. The owner gets zip. Been there done that.
Any parent knows the feeling. Buy diapers, formula, school clothes, baseball uniforms, cheerleading uniforms and then pay the bills for the month. No money left over.
Real situations. Real people. Time to suck it up for a bit. But not if you are a Congress person.
Right now, as Americans are driving less, in order to save money, the gas tax revenues are down. So what do the Democrats in Congess do? They want to raise gas taxes by 10 cents a gallon. That is their answer. I am beginning to think that raising taxes or fees is their only answer. Obviously certain things in our country cost money. That is a given. But instead of thinking like a socialist, those in Congress should try thinking like a business owner or a parent. Give something up. Cut something else out of the budget. Cut the fat.
If they need help cutting the fat, I bet a whole lot of us could help them. I am starting to think that their 9% approval rating from last week is going to get wiped out very soon.
