President's changes resulted in bigger government

President Barack Obama ran his previous campaign on hope and change. He added more than $4 trillion to the national debt. He wasted more than $500 million of taxpayers' money on a company that went under. He believes the American people should give him a blank check. Gasoline prices are up 92 percent since Obama took office. Congress spends money faster than a spoiled rich girl with her daddy's credit card. Higher taxes only increase spending. Obamacare is a mandate — it's not about covering those who have no health care.

Obama wants to tell Americans what's best for them. And what about those Americans who don't believe in hospitals or doctors? Should they be forced to buy health care? Health care should be affordable to those who want it. The government shouldn't tell us we need it. What's next? Are they going to tell us what kind of house to buy? What size car we need depending on how big our family is?
