It Is A Spending Problem

The United States has a published debt of 19 TRILLION dollars. This does not include the 100 TRILLION or so in unfunded liabilities that we cannot possibly hope to pay for. The government wants us to believe that it needs to tax us more so it can pay for these things. They would have us believe that there is nothing they can do unless we pay more because this is what it costs to run government.

Barack Obama and his regime have added nearly 10 TRILLION dollars to the debt which means, by his own definition, he is unpatriotic.

The problem is not that the government does not extort enough from us. The reality is the government takes far more than it needs to accomplish its CONSTITUTIONAL responsibilities. The problem is our government has gotten itself involved in all kinds of things for which it has no authority and no responsibility. Social programs are the bulk of the government despite the fact there is no authority for them in the Constitution. The Constitution clearly defines the role of the government and what it has authority over. Those authorities do not include health care, education, welfare, college and many other items too numerous to mention.

The bottom line is we spend too much. The federal government took in a record amount of tax revenue in the first part of this year and still managed to spend over 400 BILLION more than what it received. IT IS OUT OF CONTROL AND UNCONSTITUTIONAL SPENDING that is causing the problem.

We now have people running for the presidency who want to add even more debt to the ledger. Bernie Sanders wants to give away everything for free (by free he means other taxpayers foot the bill) and Hillary Clinton wants to add another TRILLION dollars to the budget (for more unconstitutional spending) and pay for it by increasing taxes ONE TRILLION dollars (likely more).

This must stop. All the ancient politicians in DC will be dead and gone when the ticking time bomb they set off explodes and causes the collapse of our nation. They and their families have profited quite nicely by gaming the system and then they will die off while the rest of us suffer the consequences.

We need to reduce the size of our government and end ALL unconstitutional spending and we need to do it yesterday.

You might think it is all free and the rich can pay or we can tax our way out of it but that thought would be wrong.

And when the SHTF the leeches thinking such thoughts will be the first to suffer and the first go.

Your Share Of The Debt Is A Lot Of Money

Despite the fact that the federal government took in a record amount of tax revenue during the first eleven months of the year it still managed to spend more than that and ran a 529 BILLION dollar deficit. That is correct, 529 BILLION more dollars were added to the US debt.

The amount of taxes collected amounts to a little more than 19 Thousand dollars per worker (which is an average since many workers don’t even make that amount of money and nearly half of wage earners don’t pay federal taxes).

The government cannot seem to control itself when it comes to spending money so we continue our death spiral or should I say debt spiral?

Right now the federal debt held by the public is around $107,000 per household. Yes ladies and gentlemen, your household is on the hook for a tenth of a million dollars.

This is because the federal government is way too big and it is out of control. There are politicians who have been in office for decades and they only know how to spend YOUR money. They are not good at budgeting and they have countless unnecessary programs that suck the life out of our economy. Government is so big that it has scores of programs that duplicate what others do and there is little to no oversight.

It is a huge mess. One day the federal government is going to come to collect that money and when it does things will be ugly.

We need to get back to what our Founders envisioned. We need a small federal government that lives within the confines of the Constitution. We need states to be sovereign once agin and clear of federal interference.

I fear it is too late and the once great US is but a generation or two away from extinction.

Don’t worry though, there will be plenty of Syrian refugees here to take over. They are used to living in the stone age…

Government: Record Take Still Spends More

The out of control government took in a record 2.45 TRILLION dollars in tax revenue through June of this year which equals $16,451 for each person fortunate enough to have a job. Of course, they did not pay this much because taxes come from various places but it is still a staggering amount of money.

Despite taking in this record amount the government is still running a deficit of 313.4 BILLION dollars.

The spending machine that is government will never be satisfied. It will always spend more than it gets in. Raising taxes did nothing to solve the debt problem because even though government pilfered more money from people it still spent more than it had.

The reality here is that many folks on the bottom end of the scale (the lower 47%) will get refunds of virtually all of the federal income taxes paid in. The top 53% will foot the bill for the balance.

The debt clock continues to tick up and each of us owes tens of thousands of dollars to settle the debt.

It is unsustainable and we will eventually collapse under the weight of the debt.

Of course since Barack Obama has given Iran the green light on nuclear weapon production we might not have to worry about debt for long.

The debt will be wiped out with a lot of mankind when World War III starts up.

So those are the choices. Die under the crushing debt or die in a nuclear war.

Well, at least we have Obamacare to take care of our injuries.

Wait, add one more choice to the ways to die…

Spending IS The Problem

The reality is not that the federal government does not get enough of our money to spend, the reality is they spend too much of it. No matter how many times the government has some kind of record revenue (read more taxes coming in) it always manages to spend more than that number.

The biggest problem is that the federal government is an ever expanding entity that keeps taking on things that it should not and that it has no Constitutional basis for getting involved in. Each time government decides to add more to its plate it has to add more plates, more people, and more money. Its insatiable appetite for spending is why there is no money in the Social Security Trust Fund. Government looked at the money we paid in for retirement as a slush fund and issued worthless bonds and took the money to spend. Now it cannot pay back the money without taxing us more which, in effect, means we pay into Social Security at least twice.

Despite the terrible Obama economy the federal government took in a record amount of tax revenue during the first five months of this fiscal year. One would think that would be a good thing but the government spent more than it took in. So even with more revenue the government overspent.

Government has had a spending problem all along. When Reagan and Bush cut taxes the revenue to the Treasury went up. The government decided this meant it had more to spend and did so. The government never gave a thought to paying down the debt or balancing the budget.

There are claims that Clinton balanced the budget and had a surplus. This is untrue. The revenue and expenses looked good on paper but the government did not follow the plan. The Treasury shows that we had deficits each year the budget was allegedly balanced. You can claim anything if you change the parameters after making the claim.

We are well past the time when government should be reigned in. We are well past the time where unnecessary, duplicated, and unconstitutional spending must end.

We are over 17 TRILLION dollars in debt (well over 100 TRILLION when unfunded liabilities are included) and that will go way up over the next ten years. We are in a crisis and it has to do with out of control spending.

Our government views us as an endless ATM but we are unable to pay our debt even if most of the wealth in this nation were to be confiscated. Until we get spending under control we will continue to spiral downward and when we crash it will make Greece look like a playground fight.

Obamasnare; Getting Caught In The Increase

If you like your doctor you can keep him. This law will save each family $2500 a year.

We have to pass the bill to see what is in it.

Remember these lines of BS thrown at us during the time the Democrats rammed Obamacare through? There were plenty of other lines of BS thrown around (like tax dollars not paying for abortion) but these are the ones that are now affecting people.

As we get closer to full implementation of Obamacare people are finding out that the statements above were lies. Obamacare is becoming a huge nightmare as people are having their insurance coverage cancelled, their hours cut so employers are protected or they are receiving insurance bills with huge increases.

It might seem as if the statement we had to pass it to see what was in it was true but we could have spent time reading it and learning prior to the votes. Therefore, it is a lie to say we HAD to.

One Kentucky family is finding out that the Affordable Care Act is anything but affordable. Their monthly insurance bill rose from $333 a month to $965. This is a threefold increase and is not an uncommon occurrence as families across the nation are getting the same kind of news.

But Democrats have decided that you do not matter. They (and only they) passed this monstrosity even when the majority of the public opposed it. Even those groups (unions, AARP etc.) who supported it now oppose it and are trying to get (or have gotten) waivers. Congress worked hard to exempt itself from this. They fought to force it on you and then fought to keep it from them.

Democrats and some Republicans are working to ensure this is fully funded and they do not care about you.

Senators McConnell and Cornyn, both Republicans, are helping Harry Reid defeat the House bill that defunds Obamacare. They will then vote against it because Democrats can pass it without their votes. They will go home and tell people they did all they could to get rid of it and that will be a lie.

We need to get rid of them so folks should work hard to do so. Regardless of the outcome of the current fight, these two need to go.

The Democrats are working hard to get this passed and to screw you over. Make them pay in the next election. Take the Senate away from them (and keep the House) so they do not have the ability to impose these bad laws on people. This is not an endorsement for Republican politicians because many of them are no better.

Those who impose their will on us should pay.

As it stands right now families like those in the article are the ones paying.

WE ARE THEIR BOSSES AND IT IS TIME WE STARTED ACTING LIKE IT.
