The month of April showed a surplus of money at the federal government for the first time in three years. Big Deal!
April is the month where all our taxes are due for the last year. By April 15th we have to pay what we owe to the federal government. The April Tax Day receipts usually bring more money to the government. The only difference between this year and the last three is that this year the taxes paid resulted in us having more money than we spent.
This is an election year and right now we do not have all the Obama spending plans being pushed through like they were over the last three years. And even with this surplus for the month the nation is set to exceed a trillion dollars in deficit for the year. This trillion dollar a year deficit (really more than a trillion) is an Obama pattern that has not been broken even with the surplus.
Our government spends too much money. It is involved in too many things that it has no business being involved in and it has become the nanny state providing for everyone. We spend more on welfare programs than any other budget items and the government continues to take on things that cost taxpayers heavily.
Our government has been on nanny state overdrive since Obama became our “Dear Leader” and if he is reelected he will continue to spend like there is no tomorrow.
And if Obama is at the helm it is likely there will be no tomorrow.
As an aside, there is a story out of Boston that schools will be banning bake sales. Obesity is a problem and the smarter than you school officials think that selling baked goods (and other fundraiser junk like pizzas and candy) is bad for people. Leave it to government to prevent folks from being self sufficient.
Anyway, the school system brains claim that they are concerned about the health of the children (it is always about the children) and that children deserve a chance at a good, long healthy life (as if gubmint is the only one that can make that possible).
I think what they are really saying is that the debt of the government belongs to our children and grandchildren. We need them to be healthy and live long lives so they can pay the bills our government is racking up.
Next month we will be back on the deficit train though I would not be surprised to see the books cooked here as they are with unemployment.
Democrats need to get their messiah reelected.
Never surrender, never submit.
