Much has been made of President Obama’s “you didn’t build that” remark.

I beg to differ Mr. President, it’s true that most people in this country didn’t physically build the roads, bridges and infrastructure.

I think you have missed the point, we didn’t build it ourselves, but we paid for it.

Government doesn’t create money out of thin air, all the money for those roads, bridges and infrastructure was paid for with our taxes!

So Mr. President, we may not have built it, but we paid for it!

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
