Dear Santa Obama

Posted on Thu, Nov 29, 2012 at 4:00 AM

For Christmas I would like you to control your spending of our/my tax dollars. Out of one side of your mouth you say that our government will run out of money by year’s end. Out of the other side of your mouth you tell Burma you will increase federal aid there. My God, can we take care of our country first?! Why do we even give out any foreign aid while people here are starving, without shelter, without jobs, without hope. This foreign aid will never be reciprocated. We are just being used.

Three quarters of my wages go to taxes and health insurance. I think that is enough.  Please, Santa Obama, can our children grow up not owing to China that which they should have themselves? Mr. President, you don’t have to play Santa to the whole world. Before increasing taxes you could widen the tax base by putting more people back to work. Reduce the freebies you give out. I know there are people who can’t work and are needy, but there are many just living off the U.S. government because it’s easy. Finding a job and keeping it has never been easy. Why make those of us who work pay the way for those who don’t even try because “Santa” will take care of them.

Please, President Obama, stop this foreign aid and take care of our country first!
