President Obama c/o The White House

Dear Mr. President,

I know that you receive 20,000 letters a day and that you actually read 10 of them every day. I really do respect you for trying to get a pulse on what is going on out here.

When I think of all of the problems we are having in our economy today then I think about the period of time from 1977 to 1980 when the economy was in bad shape. How did we get out of that mess? Maybe we should look at how Ronald Reagan got us out of that mess and he brought forth one of the best periods of economic expansion in our nation’s history.

Ronald Reagan cut taxes in a big way. Maybe we should head down that path. Here is speech from a Tea Party favorite that advocates that path. A concise and fine speech by Dr. Broun:

“Mister Speaker, we’ve reached the fiscal cliff not because we tax too little, but because we spend too much.  My Democrat colleagues want to focus on whom to raise taxes and by how much – but this debate should really be about our addiction to outrageous spending.

“Many in Congress don’t believe that what happened in Greece could happen here in the United States.  But just think about it.  Greece kept borrowing and spending more and more until eventually they couldn’t pay their public workers.  They couldn’t take care of the elderly and the poor who depend on government programs.  And they couldn’t deliver any of the retirement or healthcare services they promised its people.  Sound familiar?  It’s because the United States is headed down the same path today. 

“The Democrats think we can tax our way out of this mess.  But we’ll be right back here having this same debate very soon if we don’t cut spending. 

“Today, the Democrats are talking about taxing the top two percent.  Next time, it’ll be the top fifty percent. And so on, and so on, until we’re taxing everyone – but spending so much that we still can’t meet our obligations.

Mister Speaker, let’s shift the focus of this debate from taxing to spending so that we can give the American people what they want; a strong economy and a guarantee that programs like Medicare and Social Security will remain intact for them.

“I yield back.”

Thank you so much for your time. I know how valuable it is. I also appreciate the fine family that you have and your commitment as a father and a husband.

Sincerely,

Everette Hatcher III, 13900 Cottontail Lane, Alexander, AR 72002, ph 501-920-5733, lowcostsqueegees@yahoo.com
