One of the things about Daniel Imperato I really, really like is his support of a balanced budget. For years, we’ve been told by fellow conservatives that the Democrats are the sole problem for fiscal irresponsibility in Washington. And when President George W. Bush took over in 2000 with the GOP in control of the House and Senate, many of us thought the problem would be solved. Right?
Unfortunately, President Bush has been guilty also. Granted, he has had to work with Democrats, has levied a tax cut to stimulate an economy that was on the decline when he took over and has had to beef up military spending in the wake of 9-11, but it just seems like the wasteful pork spending continues.
I really hope conservatives can see a candidate—and it’s looking more and more like it’ll have to come from a third party—who truly believes in balancing the budget and spending responsibly. Are tax increases needed to balance the budget? No. When you consider the billions that get wasted every year, I honestly don’t see why we need another tax increase.
