    Dems: Tax/spend? Borrow/spend?

    The Obama's new budget:

    BBC NEWS | Business | Obama unveils his $3.6tn budget

    $3.6T budget, $1.7T deficit.

    Question:
    Would the Democrats prefer to be referred to as "Tax and spend" or "Borrow and spend" or both?

    Historically, Dems tax and spend, the GOP borrows and spends. I prefer the former.....

    well we know which method Bush preferred
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    I would rather be a high spender that paid for the what I spent, then a big spending deadbeat freeloader that passed the bill on to my children.

    So I am going to go with Tax/spend.

    So, what do you think about Obama not raising taxes to pay for his spending?

    I thought he was going to raise taxes to Clinton era levels on the top bracket though.

    Even if He does, He still projects a 1.7T deficit.
    So, again:

    I did read that. I even read it when you originally posted it.

    It seems to me that you are not at all happy that He did not raise taxes suffiicent to cover His spending.

    Correct?
