Cut government waste before raising my taxes

March 08, 2013 12:00 am

The president threatened Congress with sequestration cuts without a budget. Now he gets his cuts but calls them dumb and blames the Republicans for them.

He claims to be reasonable and presenting a fair deal. Yet he has failed to state that every budget that gets sent to the Senate does not make it to the floor because it doesn't contain the tax increases the president wants.

Cut the spending. Cut the waste before raising my taxes again. Be a leader.

- Thomas Burke, Lansing
