How did we get this backward?

leave a comment »

As long as this link lasts, it is interesting for what it shows:

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/newsroom/debt-interactive–countdown-to-the-default-deadline.html

To the author of this interactive piece, “Mandatory spending” includes all the charity programs.

Discretionary spending includes items the constitution clearly says belong to the Federal Government, and not to the citizens or the states.  

As long as we call Federal Charity (aka Religion) a mandatory expense of the Federal government, we will remain in debt to the Chinese.

How do politicians defend borrowing 40 cents on the dollar?

leave a comment »

Besides acknowledging it is an effort to pander to their financial supporters and secure their own reelection?

I think there is NO other “reason” to vote for borrowing more, and more, and more, and more, than to seek reelection.

Honest leaders, might borrow one year to get through a rough spot, but planning to borrow every year for the forseeable future is not responsible.   CUT SPENDING to match revenue, endure hardship, delay gratification.  I want to ask the folks in Washington to grow up and be adults.

We Democrats should be embarrassed.

with one comment

If House Speaker John Boehner’s claim that 40 cents of every dollar we spend today is borrowed from our grand children, we should be embarrassed AND ashamed.

Nancy, Harry and Barack, not George, passed the bailout legislation and stimulus packages to make us comfortable and bury our grandchildren in dept.   Elected democrats should be embarrassed for approving spend increases without tax increases.   That just reeks of get me reelected.  Give out the goodies and let the grandchildren pay.  If they could not pay for the hand out, they should not have given the handout. 

We  often say the Republicans don’t want to tax the rich, but when we Democrats had control of the congress we did not tax the rich either, likely because honest politicians realize they don’t deserve to be intrusted with hard earned money that will be wasted by a bloated, inefficient Federal government.

That Nancy and Harry think Barack “caved” to get a debt limit deal that did not have more revenue, is to pander to their reelection funds, instead of admitting reality.   We need to gore the sacred cows.

Charity and religious activity should be returned to the houses of worship.   The progressive socialists need to admit they wanted to establish a social welfare and entitlements agenda that established the religion of big government.  

We should honor, not condemn those elected Democrats brave enough to vote for Americans and against the progressive socialistic party leadership.

It is not WAR with the Republicans, it is honor, and good faith with our grandchildren.   We should not be the party of pay later, big socialistic government, burying our grandchildren in debt, nor play the role of Robin Hood.  We need to have leaders, who will lead for our grandchildren’s future, not their reelection.

Find an all cut, massive cuts, solution that borrows 30 cents on the dollar in 2011, 20 cents in 2012, 10 cents in 2013 and is balanced by 2014 with pay down of the debt begun in 2015.  

We should seek a good faith deal with the citizens of America, that any authorized debt increase today, begins to be reduced back to today’s debt ceiling by January 2020.  We do not want to be Greece, Italy, Spain, ….. We want to be an honorable nation with a small Federal government, and freedom for each State to decide for themselves how they will, or will not, provide social services.  The Federal Government must get out of Religion.  The houses of worship need to get back into being the primary source of charity care.

Does the truth in advertising law apply to Washington?

leave a comment »

I guess not, as this news cycle shows.

The IOM’s report, “Clinical Preventive Services for Women: Closing the Gaps,” also said US health plans should provide free screening for gestational diabetes and free counseling on sexually transmitted infections and HIV.

Other recommendations included free lactation counseling and breast pump rentals to promote breast-feeding — services that most mothers of newborns pay for out of pocket — and regular screening and counseling to detect domestic violence.

Birth control pills are often covered, at least partially, by many health insurance plans but the committee recommended they be issued without any co-payment by the patient.

The potential costs of adding blanket coverage of the eight services were not considered as part of the group’s review.

The reason Obamacare will further bury the US government, and our grandchildren in debt, is making more stuff “free”.  We can not afford “free”. 

Of course what they really mean is that employers, the self insured and the government will pay more, so that their special interests pay less.   

This happens over, and over, and over again, in the “compromises” that get legislation passed.   Better to say “no” to toxic legislation, than “yes”, unless of course your re-election is based on paying for those contributions.

When Washington recognizes that charity is a Religious activity and a violation of the First amendment, the revenue needs will be in balance with the spending plan.

The PEOPLE’S house – thankfully it can stop the Senate and President

leave a comment »

I just read on an AP post  a quote from Barack: “You sent us to Washington to do the tough things, the right things,” he said. “Not just for some of us, but for all of us.”

As a conservative Democrat I say that The PEOPLE said in the 2010 elections, “yes we did, and no you didn’t, so we are throwing out the incumbents who did not do the right things.”

The HOUSE of REPRESENTATIVES, THE PEOPLE’S HOUSE, can be turned over in one election to STOP a President and Senate who are not listening to The People.   We conservatives, Democrats and Republicans together, tossed out incumbents who did the wrong thing, and crammed Nancy, Harry and Barack’s agenda of expanding government intrusion down our throats.   We said we want limited government intrusion into our lives, not expanded government intrusion.

I want the members of The PEOPLE’S HOUSE to CUT all spending on Religious activity.   All Charity care should STOP at the Federal level.  Any payments exceeding actuarially calculated contributions are charity.  As currently set up by the Liberal Progressives Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security pay more than the contributions made to purchase insurance coverage.  The excess is charity, and is the domain of Religion.  The first amendment prohibits establishing religion.  These charity payments must stop, and if payments were reduced to the point that the payments tied to contributions made, and there still was a shortfall, then there might be a time to talk about revenue.  First cut benefits to match payments, stop Federal Religion, end Federally funded charity.

Letter to the Editor: The Economist

leave a comment »

Sir – American politics are different because the role of religion has historically been separated from our government powers.  The turn from “in God we trust” toward “in Government we trust” of the 1930’s has created much of the imbalance we now face.  Large, strong, governmental unions, an outgrowth of the Big Government “New Deal” have created the same type of economic demands on our government, that exist in European capitals.  IF we restored acts of charity to religion, and took them out of the hands of government employees, we would have far less expensive, and better focused, charity care.  Medicare and Medicaid (charity care) and Social Security (under funded pensions) are the Sacred Cows of the US Federal government.  The term Sacred Cow should be a tip-off to our leaders that they are meddling in religion.  The Tea Party members want a small government that abides by the Bill of Rights. People around the globe still respond favorably to the ideas of Creator (not government) given Rights, Liberty and personal Freedom.
