From “Government Gone Wild.” Please share it with your friends and family!
In all fairness. Lindsay Lohan has proven herself to be far more responsible and capable of self-government than have the majorities and leadership in either chamber of the U.S. Congress.
Perhaps they ought to take a long, long recess and put her in charge of the Constitutional duties they’ve shown themselves incapable of discharging.
I wish people would quit calling my Social Security and Medicare entitlement. I worked all my life and paid into these programs, so am not like these lazy fools who live off it free. If I paid for it it is not an entitlement.
Yeah, they want to call our social security and medicare entitlements now, like we didn’t do anything to deserve them . Burns me up too. So, they let in billions and billions of illegal mexican’s and anything else that slithers across the boarder. They are given them entitlements out the kazooo. If you notice all these shows now say we are gettiing entitlements. Just love it when they all start singing the exact same song. NOT ! I know how you feel, so do I .
Me, too! jkwebbo. Working Americans paid into both SS and Medicare as the government “promised” to take care of our money instead they used it to provide entitlements to others. I have no problem providing for the general welfare of those in need, I do, however; resent the government stealing from our savings just as much as I resent Wall Street steal my husband’s savings of 38 years. NO DIFFERENCE!
Scary but true. We can pull back out. but will we? Reagan left us a blue print . Granted Reagan is gone.
But here is a little history:
40th President, 1981-1989
National Debt: $2,857,430,960,187.32 trillion
Reagan advocated reducing business regulation, controlling inflation,
reducing growth in government spending, and spurring economic growth through tax cuts.
In order to cover newly spawned federal budget deficits,
the United States borrowed heavily both domestically and abroad,
raising the national debt from $900 billion to $3 trillion.
Government spending was out of control.
Reagan described the new debt as the “greatest disappointment” of his presidency.
Much of the federal deficit increases were due to military spending which eventually
led to the fall of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War. Many of Reagan’s fiscal policies
led to American prosperity well into the next century. Stephen Moore of the Cato Institute stated
that “no act in the last quarter century had a more profound impact on the US economy of the eighties
and nineties than the Reagan tax cut of 1981. … The American economy grew by more than a third in size,
producing a $15 trillion increase in American wealth. Every income group, from the richest, middle class
and poorest in this country, grew its income.”
Reagan was unique. but left a blue print and plans to re control the government and drive the debt down.
I point out this history to show, We can do it again. But will we? Bush and Obama did not.
Face it. The free ride is over. Now we have to pay the fiddler for the dance.
With only one credit card for congress..who is keeping track of the spending. That is like someone with many wives using one credit card. The poor husband working his butt off trying to keep up.
