No not the second coming of George W. Bush. Your W-2 is the most important thing you need to think about before you pull the lever, punch chad, pencil the circle, or whatever device your board of elections might throw at you. This election is about one thing boys and girls and Ruth. And that is your taxes. If you elect Obama and his promises become law all you folks with jobs will pay more in taxes. All you folks without jobs will get more handouts. If you elect McCain and his promises become law all you folks will pay the same or less in taxes.
It really is that simple. Tax and spend or lower taxes and cutback. What do you do when you run short of cash? Do you cutback or maybe you get an extra or different job. Or do you charge away your future? Most of us cut back, some of us charge away. Doesn't it make more sense to cut back the wasteful spending and give it back to the consumer to spend as they choose? You know - freedom to decide how your nickels are spent. Just my opinion.
But I will ask each of you to take out your W-2 form at the end of 2009 and compare it to this year's W-2. I will be interested to find out how each of us does in Obamanomics.
For those who don't know what a W-2 form is go back to eating cheese puffs and surfing the net, the treasury will stop by soon to deliver your windfall entitlements.
