CWA @ D.C. TEA Party
(Larger version found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWpYR_gPuVw) On the day we pay our taxes, Wednesday, April 15, 2009, Concerned Women for America (CWA) joined others in Washington, D.C., to protest the Obama Administration's soaring tax-and-spend burden that will cripple American families, stagnate the economy, and stifle any real long-term economic growth and stability.
Under the Obama budget, the Congressional Budget Office projects that the national debt will soar over the next 10 years from 40 percent of GDP today to a shocking 82.4 percent. (Ronald Reagan left office with the national debt at 42 percent of GDP).
The presidentís budget also states that total federal borrowing will grow by $2.7 trillion this year alone, an increase of 27 percent in one year!
The budget President Obama proposes for this year increases federal spending by an incredible 34 percent over the previous year, with a total of $4 trillion in federal spending, the highest ever.
