Extending the current tax rates will cost me a frillion-billion dollars.

Like the government-and apparently every Democrat alive-I will just make things up and they will be true.........

Amid all the talk about extending the current tax rates I am repeatedly reminded that our federal government cannot grasp the fact that my earnings are not theirs to take at my expense. In article after article (or newscast) we are barraged with the sentiment that somehow extending the current rates will "cost" the government some astronomical amount of money.

Unfortunately, if it was never yours, there is no cost. When my friend Sally didn't give me $100 dollars she didn't owe me, it didn't "cost" me $100. No this is just the entitlement mentality of our government run amok.

Senator Claire McCaskill said last week that folks should "take up pitchforks" against Republicans who wanted to "give" millionaires more money.

Rep Anthony Weiner (D-NY) told Megyn Kelly that estate tax was indeed "not" a double tax because you wouldn't be paying anything-you would be dead.

Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-N.Y.) said Wednesday on the Dylan Ratigan Show, while discussing extending the current tax rates that this was the Republican "Wet Dream Act."

If the government would learn to live within it's means and stop counting on revenue that is not theirs we would be able to stop having this discussion. Rather than making an enemy out of the job creators and perpetuating class war-fare these folks should be concentrating on cutting costs and making a budget that is within the revenue they currently get. It is a pathetic distraction from the true problems of this Administration-too much government and too much spending.

Repeat after me:
-The government cannot create money.
-The government cannot create jobs.
-When you steal less from me it is not you "giving" me anything.
