I have to take exception with Huckabee’s comment:

“I think they are going to have a hard time going out into the pews and saying tax policy is what Jesus is about, that he said, ‘Come unto me all you who are overtaxed and I will give you rest.’”

I’m sorry but I think a case could be made against raising taxes on the grounds of excessive spending, excessive taxation and the unfairness of targeting one group. I can’t understand why anyone would want to reward this Congress with more money to throw around like drunken sailors. If the money actually made it to the poor instead of a huge government bureaucracy, I might be tempted into agreement but knowing that our government wastes so much of the money that they collect, I feel no compunction to vote for those who would take more.
It would be poor stewardship of the money that we have been given by the Lord to vote for someone who wouldn’t work to end spending our money on a bridge to nowhere,a hippie museum and a center in Rangel’s name, just to name a few of the more egregious examples. Taxes are a very important issue in this race and I for one I’m going to vote for the Republican candidate that understands that and evidently, that isn’t Huckabee.
