Today, the liberal leftist democrats nominee for President , boldly offered , if elected , to set up a 5 Billion dollar trust fund to be used for the purposes of cleaning up the great Lakes, a noble goal to be sure. The huge amount of monies would come from increasing taxes on the Oil companies, (the same oil companies he would add more taxes on to turn around and give every man woman and child a $1000 payment tax relief check), The population of the country being in excess of 300 million, at $1000 bucks a head comes to---plus now an additional $5 billion to the great lakes area (its coincidental that Mich, Ohio, Minn are all critically undecided as to which way they will vote, so promise some money , can't hurt right Obama?) The liberal democrats are against drilling for new oil, but I just can't see how taxing the oil companies tens of billions of dollars is gonna bring the price of oil down, or make us independent of foreign oil?.
The country currently running a huge deficit, can't see how Obama is gonna cut taxes either, why does he keep saying he will? Sorry I want an experienced leader as President, and not one that will just throw dollars at the problems and create ever more government bureaucracy.
