Upcoming Budget : Nowhere to Run
We are a country that has essentially given our Congress a blank check to run the country with no budget plan for two years running. How can anyone expect Congress to control spending when they can’t even pass a yearly budget? This isn’t your usual incompetency in budget sanity we are led to believe at times, but to the contrary, this is done by design. With no set budget, the taxpayers footing the bill can never track how their money is spent. The truth will eventually come out, but by then the money has already been spent and our national debt just keeps on climbing.
The first tactic is to delay reporting and proposed submission deadlines. Obama was late in producing his proposed budget again recently. As the weeks turn into months, the spending continues on the ludicrous “continuing resolution” scam that should be made illegal for all intents and purposes. Congress needs the President’s budget proposal as soon as possible, so they can get to work in both houses hammering out a final budget. Here we are with almost 1/4 of the fiscal year already gone, and we don’t even have a starting point from Obama’s supposed economic gurus on another bloated expensive “advisory panel.” Here is a picture of them so we all can see just who these “key economic advisors” are:
I see Obama appointee Tim Geithner up there, he is the Secretary of the U. S. Treasury today. He is also the genius who was caught cheating on his tax returns, which happens to be a felony called tax evasion, and blew it off as a “Turbo-tax” error. Instead of going to jail he was put in charge of our Treasury. He is just the man we need balancing our national checkbook today, thank you so much Mr. President and Congress. And you wonder why the people have lost all trust in government today?
We can go to any news sources and get a huge variety of interpretations of Obama’s current budget proposal. This will be discouraging to anyone hoping to see a real final budget any time soon. That is not going to happen, as I stated before, the longer they stall, the more they can spend without any real accountability. Jake Tapper at ABC News* lays it out like this:
“President Obama later today will propose a 10-year budget plan that would increase the national debt by $7.2 trillion over 10 years — $1.1 trillion less than if it weren’t implemented.
The plan shows that Obama will not take the lead on any aggressive measure to eliminate the nation’s $14 trillion debt. This sets up the Obama administration on a collision course with Republicans, who are calling for serious deficit reduction and spending cuts. On Friday night, House Republicans unveiled a spending bill to fund the government for the next seven months that they say will reduce the president’s requested spending levels this year by at least $100 billion” (emphasis mine)
So there you have it, in a time of yearly trillion dollar deficits crushing our economy and pushing us down the path to insolvency, Barack Obama, the big government, big spending, far left Liberal Socialist wants to continue to collapse our economy. Even in the face of fiscal disaster, this man has to play up to the base of his ignorant, fake Utopian Socialism worshippers of the Liberal Left, reality be damned. This whole budget proposal is nothing more than the continous, never ending campaign for power, of one Barack Hussein Obama. Apparently there are plenty of other realists in this country who agree with my statements here. The Wall Street Journal ** exposes some interesting facts also, such as: (emphasis mine )
“President Barack Obama’s $3.8 trillion budget for the coming fiscal year raises taxes on businesses and upper-income households by $2 trillion over 10 years and cuts spending on programs with considerable political support, but will still leave the nation with $8.5 trillion in added debt over the next decade. The budget plan for fiscal 2011 calls for nearly $1 trillion in tax increases on families with income above $250,000 over the next decade. Banks and multinational corporations would face new fees and levies. And oil companies would lose $36.5 billion in tax breaks over the next decade.”
When we seek the truth about our government, numbers never lie if we dig down to the real ones. What do we see in Obama’s budget? A broken promise of not raising taxes to start with. We see lies about the message our government has been telling us for the last decade in this statement from the same article: “It tells you we’re in a lot worse shape than advertised,” said David Walker, a former U.S. comptroller and now president of the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, a think tank focused on budget reduction. So much for Obama and the Democrat’s “summer of recovery” lie they ran around the country tell people all of last year.
Another observation about Obama’s current proposed budget reveals more long-standing DC trickery. There is very little talk of the 2011 budget totals in Obamas proposal, instead we see things like 10 year projections and temporary cuts, and 5 year savings, etc. I say tell Obama we want the budget proposal for 2011 nothing more. We want it now before half the year has passed by us. Never mind the gimmickry of spewing savings 10 years from now, or in 2012, 2016, 2020. Mr. President, we either stop the spending this year or we won’t have to worry about budgets, as there won’t be any money left to spend soon.
Today is Feb. 14, 2011. the CBO projects our deficit to be about 1.6 trillion dollars this year alone. That does not include the damage to our economy and piled on debt that will result from the illegal Socialism-based Obamacare. Lets get to work on some real cuts to our bloated, wasteful government and do it now. Get off your campaign train and get to work doing the job you were elected to do Mr. President. The people are onto your game of stalling and bloviating with your phony centrist propaganda, while continuing to spend us into economic Armageddon. You are only fooling yourself and those common beggar Nanny State morons that make up your base. 2012 can’t get here fast enough for me. The dangers are very real from Obama’s “nudging” America towards the phony Socialist utopia where money grows on trees and no one has to work for a living or take personal responsibility for their lives. This whole budget proposal reeks of false propaganda trying to set up some kind of never-ending budget battles in Congress between parties, with no real solutions in sight. Change we can believe in? Winning the future? What a sick, demented joke on the American people. We simply must defeat this Anti-American agenda in 2012 and that starts with removing Obama permanently from our government. Then, we can follow that up by removing the rest of the cancerous, far left Socialism pimps of the Democratic party in our Congress, for real change we can believe in!
UPDATE ON Released Budget: From Dick Morris.com, there are some figures that were pulled from his new book, “Revolt” due out next month. They expose how nothing has changed and just what has driven our debt up in the last 2 years. It sure isn’t SSI or Medicare, as Obama just told us again today in his TV propaganda infomercial:
INCREASES IN SPENDING UNDER OBAMA 2008 -2010
Welfare $260 – $400 = 54%
Domestic $485 – $682 = 41%
Medicare $456 – $568 = 16%
Social Security $612 – $700 = 14%
Defense $612 – $690 = 11%
Source: US Government So there you have it, the 1.62 trillion national deficit est. for 2010, is directly due to huge increases in welfare and other domestic spending. I guess the President didn’t really check the true numbers before he spoke on TV today
