—–Don’t you love how the left and the media are now all of a sudden worried about whether the tax cuts will cause more debt going forward? They did not give a crap as Obama won the championship belt on debt with $9 trillion during his tenure. Didn’t remember them asking whether the $800 billion stimulus would be paid for.. Just remember, to the left and the media, debt only matters when the other side is running things.
—–We like the tax package. We like that they are uncomplicating things. We like less and less to do. We like more and more to keep. We await the fine print and will report back to you. We are still flummoxed how we got to 75,000 pages of tax code, costing zillions of hours and dollars to comply. Just remember, it is our money to give to them…not the other way around. Last year, we sent a whopping $3.3. trillion to the Morlocks and they still couldn’t balance the books. BUT:
—–Where is all the talk about the size of government? Where is all the talk about federal spending? Where is all the talk about an out of control government in which spending always goes higher, unchecked and unaccountable? Where is all the talk about an economy that $4.1 trillion will be sucked out of this year? Unfortunately, all the talk is on tax cuts and how they are going to be paid for. Paid for? It’s our money. Government can only open up its doors because of us. Every dime spent by government is because of our largesse. Yet they continue to disrespect us by telling us we have too much and they have too little.
—–Why do we have to pay for any tax cuts? Why can’t they just lower their spending? The conversation should not be on our taxes…which should be lowered. The conversation should be solely on how much and what the government is doing with our money. There is just no accountability on spending. The problem is the left and the media automatically state that higher taxes are always necessary. But let’s go through some facts. We sent the federal government last year approximately $3.3 trillion. Let me repeat that number: $3.3 trillion and they couldn’t even balance the budget with that amount of money. On top of that, they say they need more…and they need more for infrastructure. You remember the infrastructure that was supposed to be paid for by Obama’s $800 billion, shovel ready stimulus? We know what was shoveled. This year federal spending is now up to $4.1 trillion from $3.7 trillion last year. Who gave government the raise? Who gave them the green light to spend another $400 billion of our money. The government did. The same government that has put us into $20 trillion of debt. Yet they continue to run the show. Where does it end? Where does it stop? The last year of Bill Clinton’s budget, federal spending was less than $1.8 trillion. It is now $4.1 trillion. Where the hell is all the money going? Yet they tell us tax cuts have to be paid for because they need more of our money.
—–We will repeat…we need to change the trajectory on not only how much we send them but on how much they spend. What law states Federal spending must go up every year? Eventually, these debt, deficit and asset bubbles are going to blow up and all that will happen is that each side will blame each other. They are both to blame, just one is worse than the other. Throw in the media saying nothing about Obama and his championship belt with debt, $9 trillion in 8 years, and you get to where we are.
—–It is simple. Government is too big. Government grows too fast. Government has no accountability. Government has no checks and balances. And every dime of government is paid for by us. They cannot even turn on the lights without us. This has got to stop. We were and are in hopes Trump was going to do something about this but not hearing much. We hear Mnuchin matter-of-factly state the debt ceiling will be raised. Thrilling! How did we get to the point where there is no fight about raising the debt ceiling? TO BE CONTINUED!
