America must stop entitlement mentality

Posted: October 17, 2012 - 12:07am

Editor:

If we are still free-enterprise devoted American citizens, we owe it to our children and grandchildren to stop the proliferation of entitlement spending under this Obama administration and tell Congress to close all tax loopholes they have created.

According to the Haskins Report, federal government spending per person in poverty has tripled since 1980, and yet there is still an increase in the rate of poverty. Obama’s policies and regulations keep restricting private job creation and killing most energy developments.

His big supporters, the trial lawyers, refuse to accept tort reform to let enterprises flourish again. Obama’s coddling of union bosses is preventing competition in education and industry. His four-year campaign rhetoric has not brought forth openness in government or reduced regulations nor any strong job creation.

In his first debate with Mitt Romney, Obama clearly showed that he lacks the grasp of economic realities. He keeps increasing our financial dependence on China and the other nations to pay interest on our debt. We are badly in need of a businessman in the White House. Mitt Romney is our last chance.
