Mario Diaz-Balart: Not a big fan of Obama's budget proposal

The Miami Republican has slammed President Barack Obama's new spending proposal as a "fiscally irresponsible budget, loaded with massive tax hikes and runaway spending. 

“At a time of economic anxiety and high unemployment, hard-working families and small businesses are counting pennies and the last thing Washington should do is continue to raise their taxes," Diaz-Balart said. "The budget does nothing more than increase the national debt, bring back to life the death tax, and raise taxes particularly on small businesses, which are the real job creators. It is in no way mindful of the current economic crisis or the financial hardships that American families are facing.

"This reckless budget revives the era of big and bloated government and encourages a spending spree. It is clear that we are back in a Jimmy Carter tax and spend era and should not be surprised when the results are similar, if not worse,” said Diaz-Balart.

but wait ... isn't this the woman who "secured a prime seat just three from the center aisle" at Tuesday's NonState of the Union and then squeeled when she got a kiss on the cheek?

Wonder what her constituents have to say about her voting NO on the American Recovery & Reinvestment Plan?

'nuff said

NO not him. That was his cousin, the "kissing cousin" kind.

However Mario was a proud CoSponsor of the HR5121 in the 109th Congress that was Expanding American Homeownership Act of 2006

pushing for those who were unable because of income to qualify for homes via the FHA

Reaganite Republican

Well, limousine liberals and mainstream media "elites", you had your fun... and probably almost broke your arm patting yourself on the back after you got The One elected by convincing the plebes that he was some super-human-being that could actually help the country... instead of the arrogant, inexperienced Bolshevik crook that he actually is.

Now you are getting the taxes you deserve, as Barack Obama is going to bleed you dry. And you can forget writing off your local taxes on your overpriced eastcoast/leftcoast home... you'll be paying more on that, too.

And here's the kicker: you'll be sending a lot of that money to people in red states... to people who you can't stand. New Yorkers, Californians, residents of the Northeast and the D.C. Corridor, you elected Obama... so step-up and pay those absurd taxes without complaining. You wanted bigger government.. so try this on for size.

Those of us who live in places with more rational state tax structures will welcome you when you want to move here... well, not really, lol.

So head-out tommorrow and jump in your Prius, with your "Change" bumper-sticker on the back... and get to work... Obama needs your money.
