Something Completely Missing From Any of Obama's Economic Plan....

For years now we have heard Congressional Democrats ask Republicans, "How will we pay for that?" Apparently that question only seems to matter when Republicans are in power. Every part of Obama's "Blueprint for Change" includes increases in spending. He wants to increase the size of the military, adopt a univseral health care system, increase the role of the federal government in education, etc... The only thing in his plan that is supposed to increase revenues is "tax the rich more". Two things that seem to be completely missing from his plan... 1) How to pay for this bloating of the budget? 2) Anything about deficit spending or the addressing the National Debt.

I do not support Obama in any way. Everything that he states that he wants to do well I am like well, how are you going to get those things done. Truely and honestly in my opinion, I don't think he will be good. I hope that he doesn't win, but I think he may. He just keeps giving US lost hopes, without a plan on how he wants to get things done. How is he going to raise money for certain things and so forth. Where will the money come from?

This is something that I have considered myself. All of those Obama supporters must think money grows on trees. I have ideas to generate the funds needed for his changes, like eliminating welfare. There are jobs. People will work if they do not get free money. But Obama supporters think there is no way to abolish welfare. I guess there are a lot of Obama supporters getting a free paycheck every month. I think Obama knows his changes will not be possible because of funding and other political elements involved. But that doesn't mean that he can't promise it to fool some of the people. I don't like either candidate and I feel that McCain is the lesser of the 2 evils. At least he isn't spreading lies to everyone to get a vote.
