Whenever I do the Close Up debates, in my opening statement, I usually say something along the lines of, "You always know who is in charge of Congress. If tax increases are being proposed then it is the Dems b/c they believe they can spend your hard earned money better than you can. If tax cuts are being proposed then it is the Repubs b/c they believe you can spend your hard earned money better than the government can."
Well, once again this is unfortunately being proven true. In their first budget proposal since taking control, the Dems have proposed the biggest tax increase in American history (they broke their 1993 record, which is the last time they had control). Their budget will result in $393 Billion in new taxes over the next 5 years. Not only will this choke the economic growth of the last 4 years, it will reverse it.
