Thursday's Thoughts

Several thoughts and questions for Thursday.
As far as fiscal cliff talks are concerned why isn't the focus on spending cuts, improving efficiency in government and the end to duplicate agencies/programs which do little to improve the economy or help people?
As far as state budget talks are concerned why isn't the focus on spending cuts, improving efficiency in government and the end to duplicate agencies/programs which do little to improve the economy or help people?
How do higher taxes improve an economy?  How do higher taxes increase private sector spending?
How are jobs created in the private sector if there are no plans to explain governmental regulations and laws such as Obamacare until after they go into effect?  And who pays for them?  Any why?
What is the plan to pay off the $16 trillion dollar National Debt?
What is the plan to pay for the approximately $80 trillion dollars in federal unfunded liabilities?

What is the plan to pay for the approximately $40 billion dollars in Connecticut's unfunded liabilities?
Why has the cost of a college education skyrocketed in the past twenty years?  My salaries teaching part time on a college level adjusted for inflation are less than what I was making when I started in 1982.

If I lose my right to protect myself and my family through either legal weapons or other forms of protection, how do I defend myself from an armed attack?
Just some random thoughts for today.

If you know that whatever you pass in the house will be rejected in the Senate, then why not pass something sound and good for the country and leave it in the hands of Democrats and Obama?

The House should pass a bill to lower taxes on everyone and cut spending across the board by the equivalent amount. Send the bill to the Senate and go home for Christmas.

We already know that higher taxes equals higher spending, so why would the speaker even go there. We need a new speaker.
