You could just demand lower taxes too.


Except the Federal Government has never spent less so it doesn't really matter if we ask them to tax us less, they've already spent that money.


Lowering taxes without lowering budget is just giving us a loan with interest for the future too.

I'm not worried, you millennial punks will pay for it, I've decided to live irresponsibly.

Alright, he could vote to not have taxes raised even more.

As bad as things are... I still don't want my county to go to West VA.

I like our roads and functioning infrastructure.

I'll roll the dice and let the next round of elections sort things out.


But think of the meth problem you could get in return.


I am sure there is lots of meth everywhere from the news I see. Still, we all know the hill people have been in the news with raids the last few years and Pharmacists working with them like in a gangster movie.

Not when Reagan did it or Clinton. Check yourselves. Not saying it was as good as today but those two POTUS got it done to a certain degree even if they both had hostile Congress situations.

ETA

We have a spending problem that needs addressed still. It doesn't help we have lots of backroom deals made that feather the nests of the elected like nothing ever changes. It is time to take out the criminals on their perp walks.

It still doesn't help, the government will continue to spend more than it takes in.
