Letter: Guinta showed fiscal leadership

How does it help you if your “rich” neighbor’s taxes go up? Does it put any money at all in your bank account? Does it make your next fill-up more affordable?

Let’s stop the class warfare, shall we, President Obama and Carol Shea-Porter. Our country has a mushrooming budget deficit because this administration continues to borrow and print money it doesn’t have, not because we aren’t taxing “the rich” enough. Besides, how does raising taxes fix the underlying problem that created this deficit? The problem: Our government spends more money than it takes in.

If we raise taxes rather than control spending, we have no day of reckoning and will only be discussing this issue again at an even higher deficit level.

No country has ever taxed its way to prosperity. We need principled representatives in Washington to fix our spending problem.

Mitt Romney has a mile-long track record of balancing budgets while governor of Massachusetts and closing deficits like he did in the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

U.S. Rep. Frank Guinta has shown similar leadership as mayor of Manchester when he cut spending and reduced the city’s borrowing, all the while, working with 11 Democrats and just two Republicans on the board of aldermen.

Shea-Porter’s divisive attitude just won’t get us where we need to go. She has no economic vision for our country or state and is following in the path of class warfare put forth by our divider-in-chief. She supports more blind loans to companies like Solyndra, that have squandered billions under Obama’s failed vision of green energy. Our path forward is clear. Fiscal discipline and prosperity with Guinta or more of the same as we sink deeper into the Shea-Porter swamp of international bankruptcy.
