“The executive branch also needs to change. Too often, it’s inefficient, outdated and remote. That’s why I’ve asked this Congress to grant me the authority to consolidate the federal bureaucracy so that our Government is leaner, quicker, and more responsive to the needs of the American people.”
What a frightening quote from the State of the Union address.
The astonishing fact is that most Americans do not recognize the empirical resonance of this especially since Obama's Administration has been steadily making the government heavier, fatter, and less responsive to the needs of the American people. He acts as if those who have earned their millions with blood, sweat, tears and brain power are not Americans, but enemies of the state. How can anyone be so blind? How can anyone not know the history of capitalism and understand how it has been the backbone of the United States?
Outcries of how unfair it is for some people to pay 30% of their income in taxes compared to other people only paying 12% on their income in taxes. Why is that more fair? I don't get it. Can someone explain to me (without meaningless rhetoric) how this is fair?
